• The Grape & The Groove #1

    Whitmore & White / February 4, 2019.

    Beyond my family, the two biggest passions in my life are music and wine. So I was rather excited when I was asked to do a series of blogs partnering the grape and the groove! Far more than food and wine matching, this is a very subjective topic, which will hopefully be made even more intriguing as both W&W’s range of wine, and my music taste are pretty eclectic.  Continue reading

  • Graham's Cheese Moment - Langres

    Whitmore & White / February 1, 2019.

    Has it really been a whole month since the delight of Graham's January Cheese Moment? This month, Graham has mainly been dreaming about his previous life as a jester in the court of Louis XIV of France, who paid him personally in cheese. Whilst he may have shed the bells on his toes, Graham is still paid his salary in cheese. This month, he's rich with Langres. Continue reading

  • Garden Swift Gin

    Whitmore & White / January 28, 2019.

    When it comes to gin, particularly those gins lucky enough to be coupled with the word ‘craft’, I think there’s a collective desire amongst many drinkers for a provenance that involves some rustic alchemist who resides just down the lane from Frodo in middle earth. Alas, the pretty bottle with ‘small batch’ and ‘artisan’ plastered all over its label, is all too often Continue reading

  • Graham's Cheese Moment - La Tur

    Whitmore & White / January 5, 2019.

    It's the beginning of another month and of course another year, so it's about time we wheeled Graham out of his cupboard for another cheese moment. So without further ado, here's the man himself with this month's cheese, La Tur. Continue reading

  • Whitmore Gin Cured Salmon

    Whitmore & White / December 12, 2018.

    Curing Salmon in gin is one of the simplest forms of curing, but don’t think that makes it any the less delicious! The delicate freshness of the fish is the perfect canvas for the aromatics of so fine a gin as Whitmore Gin. Its distinctive jasmine, cubeb pepper and pink grapefruit impart gloriously on the fish, and its high alcohol content help firm up the flesh. Sliced either finely - or indeed thick, as I like it - it makes an interesting and impressive starter to the Christmas lunch. Continue reading

  • Waverley Hills Wine

    Whitmore & White / December 8, 2018.

Not your average souvenir agreed, but these sensational Waverley Hills wines, well off the beaten tourist trail on this gorgeous vineyard could not be ignored! UK importer Katy Paddle of Black Dog Wine Agency tells us more... Continue reading

  • Plum Sake - The Star of the East this Christmas

    Whitmore & White / December 7, 2018.

    I’m sure you’ll agree that nothing screams Christmas like Plum Sake. What? You’ve never even heard of Plum Sake?!! Fair enough, nor had I until a few years ago, but now, along with Bing Crosby, Burgundy, and Star Wars Lego, it’s on my Christmas essentials list. Continue reading

  • Some Young Punks

    Whitmore & White / November 26, 2018.

    Something bold, exciting and a little bit sensual has been causing quite a stir here at Whitmore & White these past few weeks. All the way from the land down under, where women glow and men plunder, we have acquired two absolutely phenomenal wines from a group of three friends who decided to combine their skills and make game-changing wine crammed full with as much charisma and sass as they are. The guilty suspects? None other than Some Young Punks.  Continue reading

  • Port & Cheese

    Whitmore & White / November 25, 2018.

    Port: that rich, silky, heady elixir that’s been a staple of the British festive dining table for centuries. For many, a bottle of Port coupled with a fragrant array of cheese is the gastronomic highlight of Christmas day. But there are many different types of Port, and a whole world of cheese out there, so which Port suits which cheese? Is it all just about Stilton? Luckily as purveyors of fine cheese and Port, we have the answers! But first, what is Port and where does it come from?  Continue reading
