Award Winners! Small Batch! Fallen Brewing | Blackhouse & Platform C. www.fallenbrewing.co.uk

TWITTER | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM

First opened in 1856, this busy Victorian railway station played an important part in Stirlingshire’s rich rural heritage. One of many stations on the Forth & Clyde Line, it was the routes second busiest stop, due to two creameries, a sandstone quarry and the Boquhan Brick & Tile Works using it as their main route to Glasgow, and two nearby country houses receiving visitors throughout the year. Although closed in 1934, its industrial legacy continues today as Fallen Brewing Co.

Living and working in such an inspirational setting makes us very aware of the natural environment around us – from our back door we can see the peaks of Ben Lomond, Ben Ledi, Ben Venue, Ben Vorlich and Stuc a’ Chroin. We run our brewery using electricity from 100% renewable sources (via Good Energy), all our waste malt goes to local farmers for cattle feed, and waste hops are composted for the garden.

Producing small batches of high quality craft beer using the best ingredients we can find. We love hops and promise to use lots of them. We love the countryside and promise to be as environmentally friendly as possible. We also love brewing great beer for you guys to enjoy. If there’s a beer you’d like us to brew, let us know!

Fallen Brewing Blackhouse 5.0% ABV, £2.10 for 300ml from Oddbins and various independent

This fantastic brew is so light and easy drinking you won’t believe that it is a smoked porter. With rich chocolate, coffee and peat smoked flavours it stands up to the richness of a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings yet it doesn’t over power the flavours of turkey, gravy or pigs in blankets. And for dessert it complements a blue cheese beautifully bringing out all the natural sweetness in the beer.

Fallen Brewing, Platform C 6.3% ABV, £2.10 for 300ml from Oddbins and various independent

This brew has just picked up Best Pale Ale in the Scottish Beer Awards. This is the perfect winter beer. The flavour conjures up thoughts of long wintery walks on the Scottish hillside. The malty backbone of this beer brings out the sweetness in rich cured meats like venison, haggis and black pudding. This beer is dark bitter in colour with a woody aroma which tastes of toffee with sweet spicy overtones. It is the ultimate comfort beer; you can imagine drinking this as you relax into a big leather sofa in a bothy after a day on the hill (or the rugby pitch!).

Who’s the Dude?  What’s he up to, this wacky,

inflatable arm flailing, leg-waving blow-up man?

Before you do anything… watch this video. It’ll give you a brilliant idea of what can go on when The Dude is involved!

https://www.facebook.com/tonmazzonecomedy/videos/339386079843988/

Have you ever tried playing the age-old game of charades? Probably! But have you performed various activities, like being ‘on a first date’ or ‘planking’, or ‘putting on sunscreen’ with a life-sized inflated Dude?  Bet you haven’t!

These, and over 440 charades in total, are exactly the kind of hilarious innuendo-enhancing scenarios that you’re likely to encounter with the new WHO’S THE DUDE? adult game from Drumond Park (age 16+, rrp £24.99).

You have 45 seconds… using either the downloaded ‘The Dude App’ or the timer on your phone, for your mates to guess exactly what is going on, in as many situations as possible! When someone gets a correct guess they’re awarded a point – then it’s the next person or team’s go.  After 4 rounds, the person or team with the highest number of points wins.

Remember… try to focus. Can you convince your fellow players that you’re ‘stuffing a turkey’, ‘pole dancing’ or ‘blowing The Dude’s nose’?  This is a game that truly rewards inventiveness, persuasive miming, and let’s be frank, outright sauciness!

Drumond Park has come up with another instant hit!  Who’s the Dude? just keeps on giving as you pump up and inflate preposterous actions time and time again. So Who’s the Dude?  You’d better find out!

This Holiday Season Give the Gift of Summer with Sacred Summer Essential Oil

Sacred Summer is a unique essential oil blend that energizes, refreshes and uplifts while at the same time provides a sense of calm and relaxation. It’s perfect for those busy on-the-go days where stress is high and you need a pick-me-up! This custom blend was created in honor of Alison Brehme’s grandma who passed away last year and inspired by her childhood memories spent outside with family among the citrus trees of Florida.

The Story:

This is a blend of some of my favorite oils that remind me of summers spent in Florida when I was a kid with my grandparents and cousins. Outside my great grandmother’s house were two tangerine trees where my cousins and I would go outside to play all afternoon and would grab a snack from the tangerine tree (or sometimes just throw them at each other for fun).

When I smell citrus, it reminds me of those great times I had in Florida and that’s why I included citrus notes in this blend. Plus, I added sandalwood, which is one of my all-time favorite oils, which is known for connection and spirituality making this blend both uplifting and relaxing. Scents are known to trigger memories and for me this reminds me of sacred times spent with my loved ones.

I hope you enjoy!

What’s in the Essential Oil Blend?

All ingredients are wild harvest or organic essential oils of Benzoin, Copaiba, Blood Orange, Mysore Sandalwood, and Bitter Orange.

Product and Purchase Details

Give a memorable, special and unique gift this year that they’ll remember for years to come. Oh, and in case you didn’t know essential oils are scientifically proven to help improve mood, productivity and stress!

Important, there is only 50 in stock and 10 are already spoken for as of this release. HURRY, LESS THAN 40 IN STOCK.

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to benefit the Hurricane Irma victims in Florida.

Celebrating Christmas with Cramele Recas Romanian Winery increases stock at Tanners Wines ahead of the festive season

www.tanners-wines.co.uk

This Christmas, Cramele Recas have introduced the latest vintage of its acclaimed Paparuda range at Tanners Wines, stockists of an ever-increasing range of wines from Romania and the rest of Eastern Europe.

As Romania’s largest winery Cramele Recas is leading the path in exquisite Eastern European production, with 2017 a monumental year for the team, with a £5 million investment and the introduction of two new winemakers. Ahead of Christmas, Tanners is stocking two new varieties of Cramele Recas’s Paparuda range, with both the indigenous Paparuda Feteasca Regala and Sole Orange wine now available.

Tanners Wines were the first stockists of Romanian Orange Wine in the UK, introducing it following the growing interest from customers. For the festive season, it is a great wine to serve on Christmas Eve with dishes that combine sweet and savoury flavours like roasted pork belly with apple and sage. Produced predominantly with the Chardonnay grape, it has notes of dried apricot and orange fruit notes, complemented by slight floral hints and a nutty, spicy finish on the palate. Available in Tanners stores and also online for £11.95.

Feteasca Regala is the indigenous grape variety from the heart of Romania. Its’ notes of white pepper, cinnamon and fresh quince make it another excellent choice for the Christmas season. Great paired with baked white fish dishes, it is also the perfect wine to serve with a fish starter on Christmas Day. Crisp and refreshing, the flavors and aromas blend together seamlessly to create a vibrantly structured wine. A very complex wine with focus and balance throughout. Available from Tanners Wines both in store and online for £6.95.

Tanners Wines have welcomed a host of Cramele Recas’ Paparuda range, from Pinot Noir through to Cabernet Sauvignon, from uncomplicated entry level wines through to more difference and interest further up on the scale.

Stephen Crosland Purchasing Director of Tanners Wines explains why the Paparuda range has been selected for Tanners Wine’s portfolio: “The price and quality ratio of the Paparuda
2

wine selection is something that first caught our attention. The fruit flavours and aromas partner perfectly with each other, inspiring increased popularity from consumers across the country.”

Whether enjoying a traditional British Christmas dinner, or serving something a little more alternative, Cramele Recas’ Paparuda range pairs perfectly with a range of dishes. Along with the Paparuda Feteasca Regala and Orange Wine, Tanners Wines also stocks the Paparuda Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon range, which are all available in store and online.

 

Wolfhouse Pinot Noir from Cramele Recas light-bodied & ruby-red @ ALDI

Wolfhouse Pinot Noir from Cramele Recas which is currently available in store and online at Aldi UK: https://www.aldi.co.uk/wolf-house-pinot-noir/p/078727168205300

COINTREAU LAUNCHES “THE GOLDEN AGE OF COCKTAILS” LIMITED EDITION. www.cointreau.com

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | YOUTUBE | TWITTER

 

Iconic orange liqueur Cointreau is celebrating l’Age d’Or des cocktails, the Golden Age of cocktails this Christmas, with a limited edition, paying homage to both the artistic and cultural dynamism of the Roaring Twenties.

With Cointreau being the cornerstone of more than 350 cocktails, La Maison Cointreau is committed to paying tribute to a time when inspired mixologists first invented the most creative recipes with Cointreau. During this Golden Age of cocktails in the twenties, with its music and lights, Paris was a cocktail party on the streets. At the Ritz Hotel at Place Vendôme, The Side Car sparked literary conversations; in London at The Savoy, the White Lady fired up the night. Sophisticated yet adventurous, unconventional yet elegant, both these stylish cocktails became a lifestyle statement for the charismatic crowds of the roaring twenties and are still appreciated today at the best bars across the globe.

Inspired by an era that broke all the rules and was renowned for both creative vitality and innovative exhilarating cocktail creations, the roaring twenties. Cointreau has also transformed its classic bottle with striking art deco curves, combining timeless style and geometry to create the Cointreau Golden Age Limited Edition. Creating a true collector’s item and a perfect addition to any drinks cabinet during this festive season.

The Golden Age Limited will be available to purchase exclusively at Selfridges London and on Selfridges.com for a RRP of £29.99 from 20th November 2017.

White Lady Recipe 20ml Cointreau, 20ml fresh lemon Juice, 45ml The Botanist Gin, egg white (optional). Combine all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Side Car Recipe 25ml Cointreau, 15ml fresh lemon juice, 45ml Remy Martin 1738 cognac. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Wet rim with lemon and press into sugar. Shake vigorously with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Cointreau Fizz Recipe 50ml Cointreau, 20ml fresh lime juice, 100ml sparkling water Fill a glass with ice, add Cointreau, the juice of half a lime and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with the fruit or vegetable of your choice.

THIS CHRISTMAS, EXPLORE A UNIQUE SPIRIT: METAXA 12 STARS.  www.metaxa.com

FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | YOUTUBE

With the festive season fast approaching, one-of-a-kind iconic Greek spirit house, METAXA, recommends discovering its smooth and refined METAXA 12 Stars expression. Whether it be snuggled up in front of the fire or after a brisk post-Christmas lunch walk, METAXA 12 Stars is the perfect addition to every Christmas.

Created from a blend of barrel-aged wine distillates, the finest aromatic Muscat wines from the Greek island of Samos and a secret bouquet of May roses and Mediterranean herbs, METAXA 12 Stars is a complex spirit. A deep golden amber colour on the eye, this expression is best appreciated on the rocks; boasting fragrant, festive notes of toasted oak, fruits and spices, and a palate of dark cocoa, liquorice, dried orange, honeyed figs and prunes. It is a unique winter-warming tipple that is bound to impress over the holidays, as it delivers new levels of smoothness, taking each person who sips it through a truly sensory journey of silky and rich tastes and aromas, all associated with Christmas. METAXA 12 Stars can also be enjoyed as a long drink with ginger ale, as the spicy and sweet notes of the ginger ale enhance the bouquet of the spirit, offering a fresh feeling, easy and accessible for the palate.

METAXA 12 Stars pays homage to The House of Metaxa’s heritage, craftsmanship and boldness, shaped by its pioneering founder, Spyros Metaxa. A man who shared the same values of courage, exploration and authenticity, as METAXA 12 Stars recently appointed brand ambassador, renowned explorer Mike Horn.

In addition, to promising to offer an exceptional drinking experience, METAXA 12 Stars is beautifully packaged in an elegant gift box, making it an ideal present to give to loved ones this Christmas. It is available to purchase now at Waitrose nationwide and at Amazon.com. RRP £30.

The Ultimate Holiday Gift for the WhiskeyLover(s) in Your Life

www.forwhiskeylovers.com/whiskey-explorers

FACEBOOK | TWITTER

A spectacular holiday gift idea for the WhiskeyLovers in your life, from www.forwhiskeylovers.com/whiskey-explorers

FWL Whiskey Explorers Club: Inspired by the “blind tasting” bar game, we designed the Whiskey Explorers Club to introduce members to amazing whiskies they most likely have not experienced before, free of any pre-conceived notion of a “brand”, price or age as an indicators of quality, or even a prior experience with a type of whisky.

Members receive quarterly sample flights, each of which contain four (4) whiskey samples in 50mL bottles. Each bottle is labeled with a generic code, and the only way the members can find out what they are tasting is to enter that generic code on our website, which initiates a game called “My Whisky IQ” where members enter their own tasting notes and ratings of the whisky. Upon completing the game, members are told what whisky they just tasted and are given a 10% discount to purchase that whisky in our online store.

Memberships start at $75 (www.forwhiskeylovers.com/whiskey-explorers)

An Oliver the Ornament gift set and its associated product line are perfect for young families just starting their own Christmas traditions, parent, expectant parents, grandparents and anyone who loves Christmas.

FACEBOOK | TWITTER

An Oliver the Ornament gift set and its associated product line are perfect for young families just starting their own Christmas traditions, parent, expectant parents, grandparents and anyone who loves Christmas.

Oliver the Ornament was one of People magazine’s best books of the year last year, and gift store owners are saying it’s going to be the next big thing in Christmas.

Oliver the Ornament is the first of 7 books and the beginning of a whole new collection perfect for gifting. The gift set comes with a large, beautiful book and a 3-inch-tall Oliver.

People are loving the book and ornaments because every ornament tells a story — nearly 80 percent of Americans decorate at least one Christmas tree every year. The ornaments they put on those trees are family heirlooms, milestone markers — memories of vacations and traditions old and new. Oliver will fit perfectly in that mix.

Oliver has a big heart, too. A portion of each book will go to a children’s charity. The portion increases with each book until the final one, when 100 percent of the proceeds will go to charity. So it’s a good gift that does good.

Price point: TheOliver the Ornament gift set (book and ornament) is $29.95. Other items areavailable as well, starting at $14.95. You can even send a book to sick childvia the site.
Where to purchase: From Oliver directly a store near you or on Amazon.

Oliver the Ornament makes Irish Debut

DUBLIN – A charming American Christmas story book will make its debut in Ireland just as the Christmas holiday season kicks off. Oliver the Ornament will be available in 10 Personalized by Santa stores in Dublin.

Not going to Dublin soon? No worries. The book and its associated large product line is also available online here.

Oliver the Ornament is a heartwarming tale about the Nelson family’s cherished Christmas ornaments. Oliver was the first one to join the family. But this year, some of the later arrivals are bullying Oliver and keeping him from his rightful place on the tree. Much drama ensues but the holiday is eventually saved because other ornaments step in with a great reminder that kindness is always in season and bullying never is.

The book is a wonderful addition to any family library, and one children will enjoy. Six other books are to follow, each one told from the perspective of a different ornament in the Nelson family collection.

A portion of each book sold is donated to charity. For each new book, the portion of proceeds to be donated increases until the last book when 100 percent of the proceeds will go to a children’s charity.

“I’ve been thrilled with the reception we’ve found in the States, and can’t express how excited I am to be entering the U.K.,” said Todd Zimmermann, author and creator of the Oliver collection. “Christmas ornaments play a huge part in our holiday traditions because each of them tell a story of how they came to join their family.”

The book is available at :- Personalisedbysanta.ie and at 10 retail popup stores:

Helenka White Design. I create unique, contemporary jewellery using different materials and techniques. I also specialise in animal-themed jewellery, sculptures and handcrafted polymer clay pendants. www.helenkawhitedesign.com

FACEBOOK | TWITTER | GOOGLE+ | PINTEREST | INSTAGRAM

Helenka White Design is owned by Cardiff based journalist, sculptor and designer Helen White.

I started making jewellery in the run-up to my wedding in 2007 when I taught myself how to make my own tiara and necklaces for my bridesmaids. Bead work wasn’t challenging enough and I wanted to learn how to work with precious metals. After a weekend course in silver-smithing I enrolled in the City & Guilds Course in “3D Studies (Jewellery)” at the local college in Cardiff. 

My inspiration comes from all sorts of sources, sometimes just playing around with different types of beads, doodling in my sketch book and also from our gorgeous cat Bobby. I like animals and decided to specialise in animal-themed jewellery.

I love learning new techniques and experimenting with different materials such as Swarovski Elements, semi-precious stones, copper sheet, silver sterling, wire, polymer clay and PMC (precious metal clay).

I mainly create necklaces with semi-precious beads and beaded rings with Swarovski Elements. Sometimes I use wire to wrap around pendants and I create pendants with polymer clay.

As silver sterling is expensive I have decided to create jewellery not only with silver sterling findings but also offer jewellery with silver and gold plated components.

Helenka White Design also accepts commissions to create custom pieces and offers jewellery parties in the Cardiff area.

Mantra magnets are earrings you clip on. They vibrate on your ear lobes, resetting your frontal cortex and instantly calming you before stressful situations. www.mantramagnets.org They’re a great neuro-therapy tool! Especially considering this modern lifestyle that we are all coping with!

FACEBOOK | TWITTER

They are fashionable and no one will notice you’re using them as a neuro-therapy tool! They also come with different front gemstones that you can change out for business formal or casual.

Use them before a big speech, playoff game or presentation to center your thoughts and become mindful. Mantra Magnets give you the confidence you need, and you only have to wear them for a few minutes.

Remember the TedTalk that brought the idea of power posing for confidence and self-assurance into the spotlight?

Mantra magnets give you a similar feeling. The vibrations have been proven by scientists to reset the amygdala, (or fear center),stimulating a parasympathetic response that brings the targeted neural circuits out of an aroused, or hyperactive state.

Or, working moms can use them to aid their meditation in the morning before work or at night. Mantra Magnets can also help manage pain and migraines.

Here is their website: www.mantramagnets.org

TRADING DOWN

Stephen Norman

Published by Endeavour Press

9th November 2017
Paperback £8.99 | eBook £2.99

www.endeavourpress.com

FACEBOOK | TWITTER

‘If this program is run, it will destroy this bank as surely as a neutron bomb.’

A chilling financial thriller that brings home the true threat of cyber terrorism, perfect for fans of Stephen Frey and Robert Harris’ The Fear Index

A terrifying look at what would happen to the world if the banking infrastructure was entirely destroyed, written by longest-standing ex-CIO of RBS Global Markets

Inspired by 20 years’ experience, Norman reveals the real world behind the trading floors: the greed, the politics, and the relentless pressure to perform

London – Chris Peters loves his work: the excitement of the trading floor, the impossible deadlines and the constant challenge of the superfast computers in his care. But the dream turns sour as mysterious meltdowns begin to hit datacentres across the grid and a true banking collapse threatens. Desperately trying to hold his marriage together as systems crash and traders turn on him, Chris must uncover the sinister truth before chaos is unleashed…

Yemen – When Zahra’s father fails to return from a work trip to Dubai, she is sure there is a simple explanation… until gruesome warnings arrive on the doorstep. As the threats become more violent Zahra’s family are thrown into a desperate race to pay off their father’s captors. But how far will her family go to meet the abductors’ demands?

“The world has experienced cyber-warfare since the 1980s and built up elaborate defences against external attacks. The elephant in the room is treason – an attack from within. Every week we see the devastating effect of accidental IT errors on airlines and banks and phone companies. A determined insider could create mayhem on a different scale entirely. Without its hundreds of systems, a major bank would sink as swiftly as the Titanic, leaving its customers without cash, wages, cards, loans and repayments – and threatening the entire financial system.

“It is difficult to convey the terror and mind numbing panic that accompanies the simple words ‘The trading floor is down.’ During my 20 years in the financial markets, I experienced that fear many times. When you read Trading Down, I hope you will share it, and also glimpse the brutal, high pressure world behind the slick images of traders and trading floors that you see on the news.” – Stephen Norman

Stephen Norman spent 20 years at the forefront of investment banking IT, facing industry turbulence, from the rise and fall of the dotcoms, the destruction of 911 and the banking collapse of 2008. He has worked in financial centres across the world – from London and New York, to Hong Kong and Tokyo – and has fulfilled a range of high powered roles including Chief Technology Officer at Merrill Lynch and an unusually long 7 year stint as CIO of RBS Global Markets. In 2012, he left the world of finance to focus on his writing. Trading Down is Stephen’s first novel.

This award-winning, paraben-free, luxurious treatment cream contains Bee Venom, along with natural Manuka Honey and the collagen treatments Trylagen® and Hyadisine® – a complex mix of peptides, amino acids, proteins and key enzymes.

It’s the essential go-to product whenever you need an instant pick-me-up ahead of the next Christmas party.

Apply it as a fantastic face-lifting make-up primer before applying your face make-up for a wonderful smooth, matte finish.

Skin Doctors™ Instant Eyelift (RRP. £21.99/10ml)

A pick-me-up for Santa’s helpers

A visit from Santa can result in a few sleepless nights for parents of excited little ones. To the rescue comes Skin Doctors’ acclaimed cure for tired, puffy eyes. This miracle gel serum means easy application and within minutes your under-eyes will appear lifted, in perfect time for Christmas lunch! This award-winning formula also works wonders on fine lines and wrinkles, with noticeable results that last for hours.

Skin Doctors™ Gamma Hydroxy (RRP. £41.99/50ml)

Ideal for New Year, New You

If too much over indulging has taken its toll on your skin in the run up to Christmas, our unique skin resurfacing peel can dramatically smooth the appearance of acne breakouts over just a few weeks without the excessive irritation you can experience with a chemical peel. It’s also perfect for older skin that’s starting to show visible signs of skin ageing.

The Card Caddy solves both of these problems, appeals to a wide market and is attractively priced at $5.99 for our Single Decker and $6.99 for the Double Decker. It has a wide range of appeal to parents who want a portable alternative to their kids playing on their devices; players of traditional card games like Bridge, Canasta, Rummy, casino games and countless others; and tabletop gamers and collectors of trading cards.

Kuma is a family run company with a passion for cooking, cutlery and craftsmanship. Our 8″ chef’s knife was launched in August 2016 on Amazon. It is the first product released by Kuma in the United States, followed up by the Kuma Honing Rod which was released in June, 2017. After going through multiple prototypes, our Kuma Chef’s Knife has the sharpness, minimalism, and comfort that we want to offer in a chef’s knife. The knife’s profile is inspired by Japanese kitchen knives which are rather swift and easy to maneuver. Those are some traits we really enjoy in a knife.

Kuma Chef’s Knife: amzn.to/2xXXSlD
Kuma Honing Rod: amzn.to/2z2nZFH

The Kuma Chef’s Knife meets the standard of LFGB. The handle is made from 430 steel and ABS. It is a full-tang knife with a blade made from 3Cr13 stainless steel. This steel allows us to create a durable, easy to sharpen blade that deals well with corrosion and resists the various acids in daily use. It is also a key metal type for us as it allows us to create high quality knives that are affordable to most households. Meanwhile, the Kuma Honing Rod is made from carbon steel and is ideal for easily regaining the sharp edge of soft steel blades.

The Voyage Travel Pillow

MSRP Price: $24.95

The Voyage Pillow is the most compact, versatile, and comfortable travel pillow for your next adventure. Raising $125,000 through crowdfunding earlier this year, the Voyage Pillow is over 50% smaller than a traditional U-Shape travel pillow to fit perfect in any carryon bag. It features a plush microbead pillow with our unique mutli-purpose poly/spandex band that allows you to customize the way you wear it – over your eyes, around your neck, against the window, on the seat in front of you, etc.

It is a great travel pillow for any traveler to get that much needed rest during a flight while being compact enough to still fit in their carry on while mainly focusing on space for their essentials. Similarly it works great for road trips in the car, taking to the beach or camping, or grabbing a nap at work!
It is the perfect gift and price point for the holiday season!
