Photos taken from our recent visit to the wonderful and hospitable lads at Argala. Pastis means 'a mess' or cloud, louche, haze, in Occitan, the native language of the guys in the valley. Enrico and Piero from Argala have mastered this anise-based aperitif after much trial and tasting. Nebla on the white label is the first batch of Pastis they made.
This week's menu is brought to us again by the best buds at Charles Oates. Angus and Ewyon have been foraging and fermenting like mad scientists at base camp in Cygnet, and have put together a list of delicious apple brandy cocktails for this long-weekend edition.
