Quench contributor Brie Dema recently tasted the Seaweed Gin from @thenewfoundlanddistilleryco - a tipple currently only available to locals but soon to be available nation-wide. “As the name suggests, this is made from Dulse (a type of seaweed) along with juniper,” writes Dema. “And the result is a smoky, herb forward gin. Notes of rosemary, oregano and saline ocean air. Slightly drying on the palate, but balanced by its alcohol. A perfect gin for an Islay Scotch drinker. Great with tonic - try with Fevertree Indian Spice for an added citrus contrast, or their Mediterranean tonic to build on the herbal notes in the gin.” Read the full article at http://quench.me/drinks/gin-for-all-trythis/ . . . . . . #thirstythursday #gin #canadian #buylocal #drinklocal #craftdistillery #newfoundland #nfld #seaweed #seaweedgin #drinkup #spirits #tastingnotes #gintasting #ginstagram #instagin #gandt #ginandtonic #trythis #tastdIQ #boozeIQ #quenchmagazine #repost Photo by The Newfoundland Distillery Company

Ata Rangi, meaning “dawn sky” or “new beginning” is a small New Zealand winery in Martinborough with a reputation for serious Pinot Noir. That’s probably why Quench contributor Michael Pinkus included @ata_rangi Pinot Noir 2016 - which will be released this fall - in his May/June article “C’Est Tout Noir” - “New Zealand shouldn’t be seen as only a white wine destination; there are reds in those hills too,” Pinkus writes. Ata Rangi’s Pinot Noir is “a parcel blend from fruit that’s more than 20 years old and aged 6 months extra in oak after blending. Mineral and spiced plum sit at the core of this wine while the fruit comes across dark and spicy.” New Zealand, just in general, should be on everyone’s travel bucket list (it’s definitely on ours). When you get out there, visit Ata Rangi, explore their vineyards and taste the reds that are redefining the NZ wine scene. . . . . . . #quenchmagazine #winewednesday #atarangi #pinotnoir #redwine #nzwine #newzealand #martinborough #instawine #winestagram #wineoclock #pinot #cesttoutpinot #pinotlove #redwines #wine #tastingnotes #winetasting #trythis #tryme #drinkup #drinks

“Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up” - Pablo Picasso . . Tate Modern has always been a favourite gallery of mine and the featured Picasso exhibit definitely didn’t disappoint. The display depicts his works spanning one year with each room capturing a different period of his life involving Love, Fame and Tragedy. The diversity of his work over the course of just one year is honestly so interesting and I recommend checking it out if you catch yourself with a spare afternoon in London this summer! - M x . . #quench #quenchmagazine #quenchmag #art #modernart #london #picasso1932 #tatemodern

@burberry ‘s billion pound switch to a new logo. Do you think it’s worth it? The fashion industry is one of the leading giants in global environmental destruction. This switch will result in uncountable waste and the damage to come with the birth of this new logo will be hugely environmentally destructive. #quenchmag #quenchmagazine #quenchfashion #burberry #burberrylogo #environment

Escarpment Te Rehua's winemaker Huw Kinch is one of many New Zealand winemakers showing the world there is more to their North and South Islands than just Sauvignon Blanc. Like Pinot Noir, which is having its day in the sun. Especially Escarpment Te Rehua Pinot Noir 2016, which Quench contributor Michael Pinkus describes as having "Spiced blueberry and raspberry on the nose followed by strawberry, cran-cherry and some savoury bits. Subtly creamy mid with gentle spice on the finish." Pick up a bottle tonight! . . . . . . . . #quenchmagazine #winewednesday #escarpmentterehua #nzwine #newzealand #newzealandwine #Martinborough #photooftheday #wine #winelover #winestagram #winelife #wineoclock #winenot #wineaddict #drinks #instagood #tastingnotes #instawine #winetasting #winenotes #musttry #vineyard #winemaker #pinotnoir #redwine #cheers

Trends change with the times. But perhaps, the times change with the trends. They change as more information is introduced, or long-term beliefs are debunked - as our culture changes, so do our needs and wants. "Trends get more popular because they meet consumer needs," explains Kara Nielson, Vice President, Trends and Mareting at CCD Innovation in San Francisco. A trend on the rise of the last 10 to 15 years, and one that has inspired "healthy as a lifestyle", is the concept of customized, well, everything. "Everything now is catered to you, and that applies to how you eat and what is healthy for you," Nielson states.

Peter Rotar is the winemaker at Magnotta Winery, a Niagara-based winery making Shiraz well enough to catch the eye of Quench contributor, Konrad Ebjich, in his comprehensive Ontario Syrah tasting (see the July/August issue of Quench). About the Magnotta Limited Edition Shiraz 2013, Ebjich writes: "OWA Gold and ACWC Gold, 2015. Medium garnet with a brown rim. Black cherry cheesecake nose with cherry and plum flavours on the palate. Mature and ready with caramelized fruit sweetness and a smooth, round finish. Drink up. 500 cases." . . . . . . #winewednesday #magnottawinery #canadianwine #cndwine #Canada #ontario #ontwine #niagara #photooftheday #wine #winelover #winestagram #winelife #wineoclock #winenot #wineaddict #drinks #instagood #tastingnotes #quenchmagazine #instawine #winetasting #winenotes #musttry #vineyard #winemaker #syrah #shiraz #cheers

Some like cannolo with chocolate chips, others with pistachios and canditi...but whichever kind is your favorite, all of them are delicious choices.. To have it crunchy, make sure the shell is filled with ricotta cream just before you buy it. If you are not sure you are going to eat it straight away, ask if the shop has shells covered with chocolate in the inside so that it will remain crunchy for longer. If you come to Verona and would like to have a taste of Sicilian food and try the best cannolo (and much more) in town, go to @diletta_sicilia_verona • • • • #cannolisiciliani #pistacchiodibronte #italianfood #italiancousine #sicilyfood #siciliagram #gnamgnam #eatingfortheinsta #foodgasm #delicious #f52gram #food #hungry #goodfoodgoodlife #yummy #eatwell #foodie #italy #sicily #verona #forkyeah #buzzfeast #feedfeed #foodblogeats #thebakefeed #eattheworld #tastemade #tastingtable #quenchmagazine #quenchfood

Michael Bartier (left) and brother, Don, from Okanagan's @bartierbros are making some quality BC Syrah. “From a west-facing slope below Black Sage Road, with dense loam over limestone and granite, their 2015 Syrah has lifted notes of red and black fruit,” writes Quench contributor Tim Pawsey. “A well-structured, mouth-filling, well-balanced palate of pepper and mineral hints and well-integrated tannins through a lengthy close.” . . . . . #bartierbros #canadianwine #canada #britishcolumbia #bcwine #okanagan #photooftheday #wine #winelover #winestagram #winelife #wineoclock #winenot #wineaddict #drinks #instagood #tastingnotes #quenchmagazine #instawine #winetasting #winenotes #musttry #vineyard #winemaker #syrah #okanaganwine #cheers

According to Quench contributor, Tim Pawsey, Syrah is winning BC's red wine sweepstakes. And @paintedrockwine Syrah 2015 is among the winners. Here are Pawsey's tasting notes: "Estate-grown Skaha Bench fruit. Inviting aromas of seductive red and black fruit, pepper notes and some meaty hints precede a mouth-filling palate of mulberry, blackcurrant and vanilla. Plush but not overt, with a deliberate, structured core and firm but approachable tannins. Well-managed French oak precedes a peppery and persistent close."
