Blog: Olly WehringThe just-drinks forums - talk to the world

Olly Wehring | 6 March 2007

As many of you already know – and, judging by the rising number of posts, quite a few of you already do – the forums have kicked off again on just-drinks, giving you the opportunity to talk with other drinks professionals about the issues that concern you.

The latest three subjects prove fascinating reading. Take a look here for one viticulturist's response to concerns that organic wine is falling well short of the grade.

Meanwhile, here is a very interesting comment regarding the row over India’s spirits tax and how Scotland may be more complicit than it thinks it is.

Something for everyone, I feel – if you disagree, then you know what to do: Get posting!
