We like good spirits, both of the human and drinking variety. Below is a list of some of our closest friends, the ones who have supported Bennuaine from the very beginning. Please, take some time to check out what they're up to!
No one loves the ocean, sustainable fishing, or bourbon as much as Chef Michael Cimarusti. Together with the effortlessly charming Donato Poto, they run the Two Michelin Star, Los Angeles OG, seafood meca that is Providence. If you want fine dining in Hollywood, this is where you should be.
Luxury doesn't really come in any higher form than what you'll taste with Astrea Caviar. From the peaceful growing conditions for their 10 to 25 year old sturgeon, to the sub-3% salt curing, the depth and complexity is immediately noticeable, and truly worthy of any special occasion.
The Cairn Distillery
In the rolling hills of Speyside is a stunning new distillery from Gordon & MacPhail, the legendary indepenent bottler and owner of Benromach. No detail has been missed and no expense has been spared by the team as they pursue a truly special dram and visitor experience. Do we really have to wait until 2042 for the first bottling?!
Run by Joseph Radford, who is quite possibly the most warm and hospitable person you'll ever meet, Timberyard is a Michelin-Starred restaurant in Edinburgh. The food is the perfect reflection of the staff and enviroment, comforting yet sophisticated, and of the highest quality. Come for the delicious cooking, stay for the coziest candle-light vibes.
