Flew down to Kelvin Grove for lunch to mark Philip Jordaan’s 25th anniversary as cellar master at Du Toitskloof. November Sawubona, in flight magazine of the national airline, looks like a whisky brochure. Feature on Northern Ireland and Bushmills and a glossy spread on the recent Whisky Live Festival. Nothing on wine. But then as the Whisky Live story vouchsafes “far from the sterile world of wine tastings, the Whisky Live Festival is based on a chic ‘lounge’ concept, with sophisticated lighting, soft furnishings and stylish branding, not to mention some chilled-out beats to get you in the mood.” Was this story written by Austin Powers? Groovy, baby!
