Competition Winners

Just before Christmas you may remember we launched a competition on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram called #JBShowTime.

 

Over 600 photos were entered across our 7 categories which were: Your favourite item from the Joe Browns collection, top tipple, tastiest tucker, coolest wintery view, sexiest party look, show stopping Christmas tree and most festive selfie.

 

Our winner, who posted a pic for all 7 categories, was Guy Carleton.

Guy, being the good guy he is (see what we did there), gave the prize to his wife Susan as it was her birthday (he did still go for the meal, he didn’t sit in his bedroom or anything).

This motley crew are the couple’s mates who got together with them to enjoy their prize of a personal chef for the evening and Joe Browns outfits for all of them!

Susan said: “It was a fantastic night! The wonderful chef Craig Wood came to my house and cooked a brilliant three course meal and all the guests (6 of us including my husband) had been given vouchers to buy Joe Browns clothes beforehand. It was amazing and such a massive treat. I am still not over the shock of it to be honest.”

“I keep putting on my special outfits and looking at the photos taken with my friends and imagining beef wellington and the trio of puddings!

 

“Thank you Joe Browns and a huge THANK YOU to my husband. I do love you very much!”

 

On behalf of all of us at Joe Browns, you’re very welcome Susan and Guy and we’re glad to see you had such an awesome night!

Quaffable Or Full Bodied?

Given the amount of bottles up for grabs in our #whatifxmas competition (you can enter here), we are talking a lot about wine in the office these days.

 

And of course there’s always one smart cookie in the corner to come up with adjectives we have never heard of before! So we thought we would create a dummy guide to describing wine; we hope you find it useful!

 

When talking about the smell of a wine in general, use aroma or bouquet.

 

If a wine is a bit too sweet, it is somewhat more complementary to say it’s rich.

 

If its colour is very clear with no cloudiness, just say it is brilliant.

 

When a red is full of flavours and nearly velvety, you can call it unctuous.

 

If in doubt you are usually fine referring to anything from the fruit bowl (or the seasoning rack actually): wines can be plumy, peppery, herbaceous or even berrylike.

 

And of course we have all tried wines that were not that good (they usually felt even worse the morning after). If you want to be diplomatic about it, there are many adjectives to describe a wine without hurting your host’s feelings:

 

  • tart instead of ‘super acidic, it’s like vinegar mixed with lemon juice’
  • lean instead of ‘not much flavour, it’s just alcoholic squash’
  • earthy instead of ‘woody, this has stayed in the barrel for too long’
  • astringent instead of ‘this is just cheap plonk that doesn’t really taste of anything’

 

Of course, pick your audience so you don’t become the smart cookie in the corner when speaking so sophistically!

Regardless of how you describe it, do you prefer red or white?
