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.

The Big Red Barn is a wonder-filled space where all kinds of Big Red Fun things can happen. Our Barn is an antique hay barn which we salvaged and rebuilt on Sunlawns Estate, a 200 hectare farm just 15 minutes from Centurion. The Big Red Barn is next to a 20 acre Eucalyptus forest, and looks out over an expansive vista of fields, grasslands and the Kaal River.

How lucky am I to be doing what I love! I have always loved working with clay and Cerameek is my love realised.

Using simple shapes to create unusual designs. Adding to this some wire, plugs and light transforms a vessel into a gorgeous porcelain lamp.

Cloth has always been a major love, this cloth collection, previously used round her waist and as a headwrap, in 2011 collided with her handbag obsession and she created a range of African print clutch bags. In 2012 this evolved into shoes, and it was with this addition that she saw she was really onto something: The brand has been featured on CNN’s African Voices and in prominent South African newspapers like The Sunday Times and The Sunday Independent and magazines such as Marie Claire, Play, True Love, Elle , Destiny, Cosmopolitan, Elle Décor, Visi and House and Leisure. In 2013 she was invited to speak at TedX Johannesburg Twitter: @mariapodesta Instagram: @mariamccloy   MORPHE

Morphe logo Black

Morphé has a strong style signature feel and offers pieces that the wearer can easily incorporate with her existing wardrobe. Layering and interaction between the wearer and the garment is encouraged by pieces often being able to be worn in more than one way. This outward transformation allows the wearer to embrace their own individual style and personalities in a distinct ready-to-wear label. My clothing is a lot like dress-up for grown-ups, since it tends to have an edge of playfulness to it. I think that my clothing would attract wearers that feel excited about wearing both colour and texture, clothing that celebrates being alive.

Ooh La La Artisan Confectionery does not make ordinary confections. One doesn’t need words to know this, a bite will do. Unexpected flavours, textures, the finest and most rare of ingredients all come together to sing a song in your mouth. It’s a song you’ll want to play over and over again. And once you’ve heard it you’re not likely to forget it. Ooh La La La Artisan Confectionery was born long before it opened its doors in 2009. For many years it lived as a small flame in Karen Schneid’s heart, dancing around as a love for France and food. And then, one day, on a trip to a small rural village near Aix-en-Provence, a single bite of the legendary calisson sparked an all-consuming, burning passion that would see her enter a world of historians, artisans, merchants and those who guard the sweet secrets of the ancient science of sugar in the hidden corners of France.

Our love affair with Mexican food started when my wife and I were in California for a working holiday. After being exposed to the various flavours and spices we just couldn’t understand why it isn’t just as popular in South Africa. The full-bodied wholesomeness of the food has so much in common with our own cultures, tastes and preferences. And so our dream of starting a Mexican eatery began… It combines our idea of a laid back Southern-Californian feel Mexican eatery with the convenience of a fully-equipped food truck. Our food is served fresh from a custom vintage kombi. Great Mexican food anywhere… Contact: Valjean Joubert 0833335633 Website: www.tacokombi.co.za Facebook: facebook.com/pages/Tacokombi Twitter: @tacokombi   THIRD STORY CREATIONS
