Apologies for any inconvenience. 

In this issue we report on the extraordinary rags-to-riches story of Karuizawa, the whisky that might never have been; on sherry; and on Savoie. We meet top chef Nuno Mendes and visit Stonestreet Farms in Kentucky, owner of the legendary Curlin, who charges $175,000 for (in the quaint racing parlance) covering a mare. We’re hosted for a tasting of Screaming Eagle, one of the most coveted wines in the world; we explain how to build a library of rare and ultra-rare books; and we visit the 180-year-old gunmaker Holland & Holland. Then we taste 20 vintages of old Napa and California, rare and independent whisky bottlings, Brunello di Montalcino and the wines of Greece. And on our photography pages we celebrate the life of Lucia Moholy of the Bauhaus, and publish, for the first time, some wonderful images of old Bordeaux.
