Our cover theme this issue is The Greatest Outdoors, and the refreshing atmosphere of early summer runs throughout our pages. I should lag (with apologies to non-drinkers) that refreshment of a diferent sort also appears in quite a few of our stories. Just as you should never go food shoppping while you’re hungry, perhaps several of us had a raging thirst while bolting this issue together. An undercurrent of booze irst emerges in our Explore section, with a weekend visit to the Black Sheep and Theakston breweries in Masham, North Yorkshire (p16). It gurgles on towards the province of Cantabria in northern Spain, where glasses of the local cider are liberally and lamboyantly poured (p41). Within our annual Best in Europe list of the top 10 destinations to visit in the year ahead, our experts recommend Vevey in Switzerland – home to a once-in-a-generation wine festival, and a winemaking tradition that stretches back to the Romans (p62). We go in search of the secrets of sake in Tokyo (p74), and wind up in the British Virgin Islands, where I took one for the team and carried out my research in a bar that serves 300 varieties of rum (p94).
