I find labels fascinating. So much so that you will often find me in the alcohol section of the supermarket. That is where the most interesting labels are to be found. I don’t even drink alcohol, except for my glass of red wine in winter or rosé wine in summer and champagne when I feel chic. I can spend a whole morning in the alcohol aisle scanning top to bottom, browsing the beautiful bottles and the labels, like you would books in a bookstore and yes, I do sometimes succumb to buying a bottle of “I don’t know what‘ just because of the label. Especially the beer bottles. The labels are fantastic! When I am asked to buy beer, I always choose the bottles with the prettiest label, irrespective of instructions as to which brand I should buy. After all, isn’t it good to test new grounds?Then it turns out at home to be the most awful beer. As if I care, I don’t drink it! Now I am not asked to buy beer any more.

I love label-gazing, too.And my favourite beer in the summer is “Wicked Elf” Yes, I liked the label first. And “Arrogant Frog” adorns a range of wines, in various outfits.There is a website, should you fancy a frog in a beret or velvet jacket…
