Art & Craft

Robert Innes, Painter

Robert Innes is a self-confessed ‘plein air’ painter whose work very much attests to this. His work ranges from the Southern light of Aix-en-Provence to the more demanding light of Argyll in the West of Scotland. It is obvious that he is at home in both climes and tackles each subject with a fresh and natural talent which, at times, is concerned with a tranquil and serene approach and, at other times is much more dynamic. That Robert is a committed painter is without doubt and the fact that he has amassed so much work is further proof of his dedication. He has exhibited widely in Scotland, includung the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, the Compass gallery,and Roger Billcliffe Fine Art, Glasgow. The late James D. Robertson: Past President, Royal Scottish Academy PPRSA RSW RGI

You know what colour you want and how much you have to spend. But really what you’d love is for someone to just point out which bottle is the most delicious and best value for money. That’s exactly what Gulp Wines does. James Handford is a Master of Wine (there are only 300 in the whole world) and drawing on his 25 years of wine-buying experience, he has handpicked a selection of 30 or so delicious, well-made, unique wines for Gulp customers to enjoy. We only carry a small selection because we’ve done a lot of homework. We’ve tried and tested hundreds of the world’s best, sorting the good from the great, so that all you have to do to wet your lips with a wonderful wine is Gulp it. Using our Wine Chooser feature you can simply select either by colour, by budget or even by the dish you intend to sip it with.

Otter Brewery

Mathayes, Luppitt, Honiton, Devon, EX14 4SA
Telephone: 01404 891285
The building of the Otter Brewery was, and still is, a labour of love. We believe that’s why our beer tastes so great and why more and more people are drinking Otter Beer.All Otter beers have their individual flavours and aromas. We are lucky enough to be able to draw our own spring water and ferment with a unique yeast. These two ingredients, in particular, define many of the individual flavour tones of Otter beers. To this we add carefully selected ingredients and tweak different parts of the brewing process to create our individual brands. This makes a range of beers to cover all the needs of the 21st century drinker a tall order! To date our cellar holds 5 regular brews that are produced all year round and a seasonal beer for the darker months where a little body warming is required. We believe that beer should be a balance of flavour and aroma. Outstanding characteristics are quirky but they don’t lend themselves to regular drinking beers. All the Otter Beers have won public acclaim at some stage, however we think that success should really be measured by everyday drinker feedback rather than awards on the wall.
