The Nightcap: 25 May

Happy Friday, team! It’s a wrap on the week that was, which means we have another edition of The Nightcap for you! Read on for news of distillery developments, brilliant new bars, and intriguing product developments…

It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday… (you’re welcome for the earworm). It’s time to down tools for the weekend and reflect on another seven days in drinks.

Before we crack on with The Nightcap proper, let’s recall another stellar week on the blog. On Monday we got set for the Chelsea Flower Show with Annie’s round-up of deliciously floral whiskies – whether plants are your thing or not, it’s a sublime list of sunny-day sippers. Then on Tuesday we were VERY excited. We got to share a sneak peek inside Macallan’s new distillery following our secret visit back in April. It’s definitely one to add to the bucket list!

Dialling up: The Benevolent intros mental health helpline

Calling all UK drinks industry colleagues: this one’s for you! The Benevolent has launched a free, confidential helpline dedicated to mental health and wellbeing for the trade – and it sounds like a pretty good idea to us.

Is life feeling gin-possible? Are you making pour decisions? Keeping things bottled up? Questionable puns aside, for industry bods the combination of long hours, late nights, and close proximity to alcohol can be a breeding ground for all kinds of mental health struggles.

Add to this the demands and pressures of everyday life – illnesses, family commitments, bereavements, finances – and it can be difficult to know who to turn to for professional, objective advice.

That’s where the fabulous folk at The Benevolent come in. The team has launched a completely free and confidential mental health helpline offering professional support tailored to anyone who is working (or has previously worked) in the UK drinks industry.
