Does the shape and size of your glass really influence how you taste what’s inside it? Host David Kermode finds out everything there is to know with Victoria Burt, whose MW research topic explored how to choose the best vessel for your drink.
In this week’s Desert Island Drinks, Rebecca Gibb MW takes us to beautiful New Zealand to discuss the country’s much-loved wines. Kermode also meets Cognac connoisseur David Brown, who has dedicated his life to hunting down the finest aged examples.
Plus, there’s the usual selection of award-winning wine and spirits, handpicked from the IWSC hall of fame.
