Litmus Orange is an English still wine, made at Denbies wine estate in Surrey from 100% Bacchus from the 2015 vintage. Using a historical production method that was popular particularly in Italy until the 1950s, the grapes are hand-picked, fermented and aged on the skins before being pressed. After pressing, the wine was transferred to French oak barriques for a further nine months. This gives the wine its distinctive orange hue.

Talking the challenges of cocktail weeks

Having recently returned from the US visiting both Oakland and Arizona Cocktail Weeks I was amazed by the differences in approach. In Oakland there was a much bigger trade focus and it felt more relaxed, whereas in Arizona it was one massive party for consumers.
