Graham's 130 Year Old Vintage

Along with sardines, explorers and Pastel di Nata, Portugal is synonymous with Port. After all, the town that gave its name to the fortified wine is but a couple hours from the capital of Lisbon. This region, the Douro Valley has been producing the wine for centuries and, since 1891, the Symington Family has been a close associate of the finest vintages.

In 1891 Andrew Symington married the...

Georg Jensen’s Moonlight Blossom Collection

Moonstones are characterised by their spectacular play with light, termed as ‘adularescence,’ which causes light to refract off of them and change their appearance from every angle, a similar effect that people used to believe they saw in crescent and waning stages of the moon. The other stone used in the collection, black agate, represents the darkness of the night against the...

Agatha Christie’s Hidden Treasure

Dame Agatha Christie, a name synonymous with Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple and twisting murder mysteries that leave you wanting more, has left behind somewhat of a mystery herself. Four years ago when the contents of her home Greenway, which she described herself as ‘The most beautiful place in the world,’ were sold off at auction, a die-hard Agatha Christie fan purchased a trunk for a mere...
