GROLSCH On the cusp of its 400th year in existence, Grolsch is by far one of the most interesting beers in history. They’re a beer of firsts: The first to add a second hop to their brew (one for taste, one for aroma), and the first to be awarded the Dutch Royal Seal of Approval and build a 7km pipeline from the brewery to the original water source in The Netherlands. They’re also one of the top 10 most environmentally friendly breweries in the world, recycling 99% of all waste and, of course, they’re one of the few that chose not to eliminate their iconic Swingtop when others moved to a bottle cap. Grolsch is for the individual who values true artistry and craftsmanship and for those who choose to see the world a little differently. Cheersch!

Only the finest vineyards in the Western Cape are selected to produce these wines that are abundant in flavour and true to their varietal character. With their close affinity to their natural surroundings, Fleur du Cap wines lend themselves perfectly to pairings with nature’s gifts of unrefined salts, from indigenous Khoisan salt from the West Coast to exotic Black Lava salt from the volcanic peaks of Hawaii. Fleur du Cap wines are made at Die Bergkelder, the famous ‘cellar in the mountain’ on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. Website: fleurducap.co.za Facebook: facebook.com/FleurduCap Twitter: twitter.com/FleurduCapWines LOMOND Lomond wine farm is situated on the Agulhas Plain, at the southernmost tip of Africa. The farm, which derives its name from Ben Lomond Mountain that runs through the farm, is situated 8km from the shores of the Indian Ocean. As a result, cool sea breezes sweep across the vineyards allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, gaining complexity with time, and character from their very unique climate. The vines are planted over 18 different soil types, and as a result, the flavour profiles of the single vineyard wines differ markedly from one vineyard to the next. Most of the wines are given the names of indigenous flora on the farm.

The hat roots were first planted in South Africa when Mordechai Pozniak (Simon’s father) brought his cap factory from Poland to Johannesburg. Simon Pozniak eventually took the leading role in the company and grew it into one of Africa’s most renowned wool felt hat manufacturing plants. Simon’s wife Leah (whom he lovingly coined Mary after reading a novel) joined the business working alongside Simon and attending to all non-manufacturing needs. In 1973, Simon’s youngest son, Julian, eagerly entered the family business with Robert, his oldest son joining in 1988. Today a fourth generation Pozniak, Dean, who entered the business in 2008, heads the brand and factory with the aim of continuing the legacy created by Simon. Simon and Mary is based on a family bond within the hat factory. Hats are in our blood. It is more than a clothing item and rather a way of life.

ERRE is a fashion brand aiming to provide the working woman with quality wardrobe staples and investment pieces to be worn both at the office and out and about. The brand proposes a new kind of power dressing. Traditionally power dressing implied that women dress in a masculine way in order to compete with men in the work place. The ERRE brand proposes a powerful yet feminine look that commands, rather than demands, the attention of all who surround her. At the core of the brands offerings lies the leather jacket. ERRE aims to push the boundaries of traditional leather use and incorporate various technological and handcrafted techniques to enhance the textural qualities of this iconic material.

Fat Amo’s is inspired by the art of home smoking and the American culture of man food. Slow, low and deliciously wholesome. After cooking in fine dining establishments, I decided to take it back to good proper food! We stick to the true BBQ roots- taking the lesser used cuts of meat, slow cook them for hours, baste them in something sticky and sweet and served up on anything from baguettes to tacos. If you are craving something delicious and messy, swing past for a pulled pork or beer braised brisket sandwich. We’ve even got something for you herbivores. BBQ food is the way forward.
