We have been seeing a lot of innovations as a result of this crisis. What do you guys seeing on. Your side of the pond at the good thing is with this industry. Everyone is so created and they've been so quick to pivots because you know it's a matter of having to survive so people have been thinking very quickly but it's been the launch. I think also in the in the states not so takeaway and delivery services which is amazing. Because i think that before people used to think that from as not the greatest of drinks but actually the quality of them has been absolutely amazing. We've had we've had auto cocktails from from the conal to swiss to all sorts of bows and everyone's doing a great job yeah bartenders. Far by nature they ultra knows so they get no these lemons thrown them and making beautiful lemonade. You know so with with in all away nets in making this intra positive much as possible and the other thing is it's been really good from a consumer point of view to see how much the people want based drink so it's not just a case of for bonds creating these they're actually being snapped up and the here In the first month of the very first lockdown kotel delivery services. Google three hundred fifty cents more than they have been before so that just goes to show the first that people have all cows indeed especially the pandemic think made people even thirstier drove muscle to drink drink so speaking of invasion You guys have done amazing work with the cocktail lovers which now celebrating ten anniversary this year.

Everything about your magazine roy. How long were you got. We'll give you the condensed version as you say with the guy for about ten years and it started very much as labor love and the and it still is An came about. Because on. John i we looked into vase. When we've stating own trump repress laundrup. I've taken a great hotel baas. Luckily it what you know. I think it was a key. Part of our relationship was going tonight. Spas and dressing up from getting to know the buffet. We always love sitting at the bar. A big thing barnes offenders they kind of like the fact that we were more than a liberal entrusted. And then you know this was a few years with us and then we start talked to friends and they roy's asking us wish we go and what's houghton are going to be in this part of london. Where should we drink so we decided writing a longer time very much about the vas in london and that's how it started of we the Lovers goes we were love us. We were married then But also we a key part of what we wanted to do was to celebrate great falls. We didn't want to do negative reviews. We didn't we might that thing in a restaurant. Whoa where people put down restaurants and give them baths. We said celebrate what we love about. This industry We wrote the blog that evolved from baas threaten about drinks personalities And also we always take a lifestyle So we will equally writing about what people were wearing of traveling then holds into the magazine and it became a very vessel. We wanted the magazine to be a lifestyle. I could say about coq. Towels was equally important about sued and travel and close postal. She's old from a Perspective yeah and then after the bloke and it transitioned we want to do a little bit more and people can also today mall. I was already a journalist at this time. But i was writing about fashion and food so i was interviewing chefs But it was so much lovelier to interview baltin. That's because they had so much passion bayden with theatrical autistic own lives this wonderful infused the essence. I had full what i would do it. And i want to translate that to let people know that bolton in wasn't this deadly jobs that people just did in between correa's this older career and because i was very much maligned style background in what advertising. So he had that mindset as well. We wanted to translate our passion to other people that we knew that was starting their journey as well so we were asking the questions that they wanted to ask and to knowledge and we brought the towel to lie in the how lovers lifestyle was here. I mean are fans and i know. There's a lot of fans around the globe loving your magazine sale. That's talk about being a couple so you are married and you are working caputo. Just like michael and me not as Challenges and and rewarding part as well. So what do each of you do at the magazine. It crosses over the i mean. There's there's lots of the same things that we do. But then all of protect all of the finances and also writing were yeah. I think we're by by creating was on the set. She's from a lifestyle journalism background than i. I was appetizing. Copyright trend and the creative director rand my own agency and things like that. So we're very creative as you guys know you know when you work in the industry you'll perry oh eight technical stuff like that. Do we have to do them for us. And they're suddenly when ll entrepreneurs and you're working for yourself. It's like oh who who fixes the photocopier yet. Yeah that was told to do a lot of stuff from scratch. A love of the technical stuff. Love the the dry stuff if you like that song as well this learning new skills out many with creates if we overlap on ideas the whole time and you know you really have to trust your gut in these matters and especially with so much on you know topsy-turvy these days you know. It's great that you trust your instincts. But how would you say you're keeping the the magazine most relevant strong As a voice for our community. In which you've been doing so well we the last two issues that we did. We very much where we're dressing. What's going on but keeping politics so you can't really foreign valid today because you can't just say everything's great because everything isn't why you have to address that but also you don't want to be down. We have to you know there's a lot of great stuff that's going on out there. We're talking about these wonderful takeaway. Delivery is what talking about people doing things in charity. That so many good things that it's really you have to champion and you have to let people know that you know we. It might be an office three months. It might be enough six months. We will get past back things guide to change. Obviously but you know where we will creative where wh- adults and we will rise accordingly after the sale on in the world of spirits. There's a lot of innovation going on on edge. We all know is in love reading your articles on the spirits and spirits brand founders and all of the good things so Are there any trends that you're seeing emerge in their spirits. The spirits industry. It's difficult at the moment because a lot of things that are on hold. I would say that where the innovation is coming is with the delivery. Takeaways that's happening with restaurants as well. So what getting a lot of Delivery kits with the restaurant so hall almost par cook the dishes. But you could you finish the for yourself. And i think that that is going to translate into drinks as Marry mbeki at At the gibson has got wonderful cocktail kit but he provides a bottle lots of little nibbles and all of the things that you need to create a really cool ambience. Your saddam you. There's all sorts of things so it's about the experiences and getting people to still have some kind of an experience So i think we'll see much more going in that direction as well an an. I think the other thing is not necessarily new new but the the within exploding. And i'm sure you are is the the no and low alcohol approach to but the cocktails and the ingredients and i think that's been a really positive thing because as you guys will know you go not that many years and you would go to a bar and if there was one of one of you for whatever reason didn't want to drink that evening then we'll alcohol. They really drew the show straw bagel like soda with some orange juice and bank and go a obviously a few miles. A loss five years said the good balls started to really kites but giving a great numb alcohol cocktails and now all in the last even more recently we've seen some really good no no holiday ingredients it's great. Yeah move about it as well. So that's another thing but it's just Tons of sodas here to to try and things like that so yes. The logano categories winning explode in. I think it's a good thing but people are not drinking but also the people that do during come on the occasional. You know day awful or size you know. We're we're we're seeing that on over here as well especially dry genu- yeah jerry high prochell as i said but it is difficult now because that may have been things that were trying to come through. But it's not the best time for launch ansel All this great creativity because the vaseline lockdown and you know people well we'll see we'll see what happens so i think a lot of plans are now so despite all you know things being on hold. Do you have any tips for our arch under friends or bar owners forgetting your attention to get featured in the magazine and you know given that you're so international if someone is from kenya or hong kong. What do they need to do to grab your attention. Well we love hearing from people. We love stories. They can be personal which is even better. If people get in touch with us with initiatives. Sometimes they don't always work but we do love to have voices from all over the world where based in london which is great but you know there is more to the world's and london and i think the the mole voices that we all here the most that we can learn from so it's always great to hear from people from all over the world we we used to have a feature every every issue where we would focus on a bartender from software in the world of what they do so. That's something that we could bring back. you know. We hear some great stories than people have folks passionate voices about. What's going on in that vase. What they're doing back unity's that will be great. And i think we would encourage Bartenders bar owners tool so kind of look at their own offerings before they share that with us as true the guest size. Because i think there's that happened. The law not just in nevada world and in life generally with you'll say close to your baby and he's like my baby. Everyone's gonna love my faith and he's like hold on mecca moment cousin of eighties. So i think that thing of just being a little bit objective about your story before you share so it's very hard to have an editorial calendar normally. The magazine has our editorial calendar planned. But i actually the west going on right now is hard to plan anything however at they are any like a evergreen story that you always cover each month where our listeners can be pasta. Well the the main things that stay as we always do an international vall saying. But that's usually something that we visit so that's from our personal point of view but we can have people's thoughts on on different buzz around the world. I'm not. I'm not quite sure how will work in. But there's always room for great stories. And as gary said it's not just about thinking. Oh new menu. Yes that can be right. But what's so special about menu. Why is it different. Why should we know. And why should any so things that some you know. There's no story but if it's good enough but we wouldn't publish so it's just about thinking how how it works with the cocktail lovers style. Why would fade. Most people is make sure you look at the magazine before you pitch an idea to us because you know some people will just pitch straightforward trade is. We don't do that when not just about repeats in press releases we like to get a story behind it. Get our boys behind it and really be passionate about so. I would suggest that you haven't already even if you don't get the magazine happened on our website and get an idea of town off style and the kind of things that we writes about eight insights. So how can our listeners. Best reach you to pitch stories Yet with the go go to our website. There's a contact on there. That's that's where we get into the united states our cold context if you like Scuds website there's a contact phone fill that in on. That will come to the two of us. I mean some people contact us fire Face fight anymore around. Yeah that's the website just in case the cocktail lovers dot com and that's also where we all on instagram. Facebook is cocktail lovers and now for the listener questions segments of our show. We have a question from a fan of the cocteau. Lovers in south korea outs noah. Young jin kwon who formerly worked charles h. at the four seasons really unsal and We visited there and saw him in action. It's amazing pass. Great and now. He has his own bar. Insult called zest soul and a. He opened his bar during this pandemic or two very very brave soul. So he asks. What advice would you give to a new bar to bring its awareness of the global level especially with travel being so restricted. These days. well it's gotta be good. Oh social media. I think you know that's the way these days when lucky in some ways that the pandemic has happened now because at least we do have social media we do have internet and we can't keep connected with anybody and every fourteen around the world so it's about making yourself relevant on on instagram. All on facebook. Facebook live doing some some child closets from from your from your car i would just say yet. Build your audience that way and and also send us some details house. Let us know what are you doing. You know we. We want to know how how thing now think about this. You've just your car in the middle of a pandemic things. What is the struggles. How will you manage in. Since the first of the kind of stories that people want to know those are the things that we like to now because we want to know things from the past no levels that always think along funds lines as well and i think again sutton from our point if he were those kinda stories as we keep saying you know we. We write full. As consumer and industry asandra synthetic of stories had to i've a bow in the middle of a pandemic. that's a great story for everyone. An industry own. These story in our consumer redes- will be fascinated by story. Live west last question of our show so what do you see the s. The future of the bar experience post kovic tricky. We we were talking about this year on this. Well because on the one hand on really optimistic and oh everyone's going to rush back into the pause and account white because we've seen this happen after the us lockdown people. Okay didn't rush back into the house but they wanted to go back out. Everyone's been indoors for so long that people are planning when they can supply next meal when they can put on the nice frog and governed set and meet with people to be different. Because before when we were empowers. You could stand up. You could do all of this contact thing and that's called now. It's gonna take a long time before you can hug all feel free to today. Those things about does detract from the experience by people. I think people still won't go out. It might be some people that are more hesitant. So if you're ball with an outside space that's right. gary has a different take on this. Whoa whoa yeah. I think the things that i think everyone's going to be aware of From above point of view is to again put yourself in the consumer the guests shoes because often we came out the fest. Big lockdown back in whenever that was may june of last year. Some said i think most people we news will. I can't wait to get back for the people that we now. But bob rose amongst people who knows a few people saying i stood up to a comfortable on the bit worried of aiming to a crowded ball. So i think you've got to really be mindful of your guest experiences. Doesn't make sure they really comfortable with coming coming back out. Because i don't think we're gonna go straight on how it was. I mean would love it too. I think that's going to happen in any major country on you might just say i think we've got to be really mindful and say fake maple back on the journey and as them back in and say. This is safe environment. We're looking at here. everything's clean. I think we've got to be really careful in tight. How people's hands in a nice way we're gonna we're gonna gonna have to build people's confidence essentially earned the trust yes while disciplines so much fun and i wish we can talk to you more on either hours. You're not to see you both and hopefully we'll see you in london. Which is one of our favorite city in the world and sometime soon few well and be happy. Okay you too bye.

"Hello on today's program a clampdown on independent media amid Turkey's incursion into northern Syria the W inside here with Keith Walker operation into Syria against Kurdish militia so mainstream media slavishly supporting the military attack most of the media is under government control now news radio portal broadcasting from Berlin station claims to provide independent news outside of the control of Turkey State Regulatory Authority urging many well-known journalists who have been fired for critical reporting now works such broadcasters government attempts to regulate such broadcasters controls regulating internet broadcasting have come into force the government says all broadcasters need to abide by the same rules bus critics claim the Newman websites making Turkey one the world's most restrictive countries for the Internet the government says the latest measures are into getting all broadcasters to follow the same containing formation from the newspapers in Turkey or even TV channels because majority of these channels and newspapers are controlled by the government the under a new regulation Internet Broadcasting now falls under State Regulatory Control Chalk say intended Portlaoise about this gene is just the latest attempt to control the Internet according to Yemen Ogden of the assembled based freedom of expression society we cannot any longer criminal investigations and prosecutions involving social media platforms over the last few years Turkish authorities blocked over twenty four thousand to make pizzas properly these stories and more coming up on inside Europe this month Turkish military so for obtaining crucial political information you have to go to social media that's why the Tokyo Tortoise are targeting the Internet whether through working practices or whether through now trying to regulate the radio and television services but also high number of ZIP which rights groups are organizing to brief lawyer for the expected co cases to contest and challenge the new control there are two ways for people to do citizen journalism online even by phone by a periscope it was unpreventable and thus a problem for the government the new yeah formerly charged a prominent businessman three others and the murder of journalist Yang Kusak Naples is teaching the world how at last cut the cord for the Internet that always alternatives plus abortion and same sex marriage or decriminalized in Northern Ireland prosecutors and slow rules broadcasters that are refused a license or don't apply for one can be blocked or face heavy fines mixed Austin law is a way to control your reporting as the government's grip on the mainstream media titans the number of TV and Radio Internet news broadcasts as measures are an attempt to silence the last platform for Independent Journalism Dorian Jones reports from Istanbul I have seen the judiciary Raleigh gains the government in high profile cases on freedom of expression political purposes answered with mainstream media slavishly supporting the military operation constantly adopt or find new ways we see them transmitting through periscope instagram is now by some new squadrons are used new law should be about protecting the individual's right to free speech this can be protected online but we're at the beginning of this road the pasta actual media crackdown hundreds of people have been arrested or call to police stations to make statements the social media postings opposing the operation every new website that they open is subject to a blocking orders takes many years to take blocking decisions to Constitutional Court and get a decision but Turkey's offensive into Syria against Syrian Kurdish militia consider this terrorist by uncle is resulting in a new enjoyed through Stormont so earlier this summer they were a proven some costs and legislation just to keep sort of civil service and every day SORTA way government works in northern the main parties are supposed to share pyre and that's under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement so that every decision here has nationalist and cyber rights activists attempts some anti-government website so news providers especially Kurdish media is constantly targeted and tonette broadcasters still remains determined to provide independent reporting during Jones d-w Istanbul I'm Keith Walker when they shut down our website we started broadcasting by phone unless they cut the cord for the Internet that always alternatives reporter says online content has never been so important despite the new controls and latest crackdown he believes such efforts are few some of the applications we made back in two thousand fifteen are yet to be decided so that's why the news providers rather than giving up Kaethe the move was approved by MP's in Westminster in July that's why it's so caiphus would normally be a devolved issue northern and in Bonn this is inside Europe a law change decriminalizing both abortion and same sex marriage came into force in Northern Ireland on Tuesday that's well given the power of the internet or the immigration the automobile alternative about they are attempting to block us but there's an alternative spice last ditch attempts by church leaders and local politicians to hold the changes David Hunter is news editor q radio in Belfast Hello David Mint and MP's at Westminster who still ultimately control the wider issues dealing with Northern Ireland they said well Northern Ireland's not functioning it's not doing informant part of her skull and she had no chance of survival so Sarah as one of the many women who are over the years had to travel from Northern Ireland to England a disagreement was over things like same sex marriage so neither has been a number of court cases have come through the past number of years we've had a couple of years with having a gun author same-sex Marijan debris so there are things that are supposed to be dealt with by our local government in Belfast but storm and hasn't sat here and almost a thousand days so under the on and by midnight on the twenty second of October or going to introduce same sex marriage and we're GONNA give women abortion rights in Northern Ireland there's been a lot of argument this is a very sad the she and her family find they were having a baby but they later funded that there little Garin Allah had a fatal fetal diagnosis so in the womb she didn't form properly genus consent but since the last election are two main parties the DUP and Chin Fain they've been unable to agree terms to form a new government and part of that legally recognized here because same sex marriage was illegal in Northern Ireland so straightaway those marriages are not being recognized and as of the thirteen could not give a woman advice abide abortions or bite where to go for an abortion they can do that immediately and there won't be any prosecutions they can also give for example thank sometime by the end of March as I say this has been very controversial and some people here are saying that the legislation is going extremely far in Northern Ireland well it'd be it'd be slightly different for both issue so some of these things will be immediate and some of them will take a bit longer so let's take the same sex marriage issue I am we're going from heaven some of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe and now it will be some of the most liberal laws in Europe and Cronje Taggart as one of the campaigners at home in our hospitals I wouldn't have been so terrified traveling somewhere that I didn't know I would have helped my family my friends around me most importantly something that I'll never get back so they then sort of railroaded the legislation going through the House of Commons and they decided we're going to also add onto that that F. A. Storm and executive isn't open a government help line phone numbers and things so women I actually can get advice on where they need to go to get access to an abortion some of the wider issues so they have to work the regular despite injures colleague having fled to Greece to escape authorities and is editor in political exile in Berlin he likes so many Turkish it's one of those attending his lawyer Selman Shaheen an MBA and Jacob cancer freedom of thought on the Internet is important where it can be provided in a safe environment the remits of where it will be a given that all needs to be worked nights so that's GonNa take slightly longer and that will probably happen we and who sort of had been campaign over the years for these changes to come in effect on how long before these changes come into effect as the legalizing abortion Northern Ireland as an affront to human dignity for those who are pregnant they can seek an abortion up to twenty eight weeks which I a hugely significant moment and it really marks the beginning of a new era for Northern Ireland one and which were free from oppressive laws released our bodies and our healthcare this has been a long time coming many have suffered immeasurably as a result of our Jacobean Lisa taken over so they were proven money for that I'm why they were doing that some MP's broaden amendments to say well if we're legislating for that northern and let's change some other people for example who are already same sex marriage in England or Wales or Scotland or the Republic of Ireland until gnawing when they came to Northern Ireland their marriage wasn't Sion's it is a very sad day and I know some people will seek to celebrate today and I would say to those people think of those of us who are sod today on who believes that this is tissue in Northern Ireland are people are all asking will who is GonNa fact will one of the women that we spoke to on Tuesday as law was changing with Sarah Yard and she's one an affront to human dignity and human life and that was the up leader in foster she was speaking at storm and dirtier this week where they at the very last minute tried to stop this legislation one of those opposing them as one of local political parties who was in a big Roy over this and couldn't get into government over this very issue the up leader earning foster and she prosecutors in Slovakia have formerly charged a businessman and three alleged accomplices with murder who had been asking for reform she with the human rights organization Amnesty International and she was speaking on radio earlier this week of the investigative journalist Young Kusak and his fiancee Kuchiak had written several critical articles about the businessman when he was shot dead at his home January next year people will be able to get market here the abortion issue slightly different so again some changes are immediate for example before Ni- a doctor in Northern Ireland in February last year his lead to mass demonstrations and the full over Prime Minister Robert Feet so amid allegations corrupt Slovak officials hud links to organized crime with more here's Rob Cameron Slovakia's news channels have been dominated by one story this week aww here but of course with most things in northern aren't under our puller opposite view Sukanya there obviously welcoming these reforms welcome in these changes but on the other side the coin and as we heard at the top of church leaders and some politicians really really opposed to these changes and they think that the rights of the unborn child should be I talks us on abortion yeah I mean people have tried to make this political people have tried to make us religious an it's neither this is medical care talking about if we haven't been able to have the procedure hyphen from coming into force Okay David thank you very much David Hunter is news editor as q radio in Northern Ireland speaking to me from the three alleged accomplices are accused of organizing them and carrying out including a former policeman who confessed to pulling the trigger a v DOC is the fact that I don't have a grave to visit nor do I have ashes if I had to walk off my little girl substate heartbreaking As you hear there Keith was Sarah Yard and she's one of the women role because of course medical advances mean that children can survive outside the womb at twenty two twenty three twenty four weeks so we will have to take a look at all of our legal trigger on the Luga revolver we know could seahawks fiance was shot I with a single bullet to the forehead but we've also learned thanks to thousands of tax it since the arrests we've learned a great deal about how the murders were organized we know who drove Citron Burlingham car and who pulled person who appears to have been a middle man has entered a plea bargain in exchange for information on the plot eight at night or knocking on people's doors he was mostly sitting at his laptop pouring over documents that were mostly publicly available contracts tenders statements from the authorities and when they weren't he'd cool the official body concerned and make a freedom of information request yawns former boss at the news popping up every day that actually Slovakia's mafia state when we talk carefully about state capture in Slovakia. We were too modest I I'm Keith Walker in bomb you're listening to inside Europe last weirs it's kind of a perfect case study it's very sad to see it but we have more and more proofs and it's coming up modest or people from think things they were curfew discussing the may be such an option but they never had proof now we even have like hardcore state capture of Slovakia being a mafia state where journalists can be murdered for asking questions have already brought down prime minister and the fallout serve actuality s car had a body says journalists now face an unprecedented threat to their safety these the reason why we evidence that it was happening one of the most remarkable things about the murder of Yang Kuchiak is that he wasn't meeting gang-land figures in dark alleys I and much more it was mafia state run by a group of powerful businessmen you know some of the brave the people who's taken to the High Court Northern Ireland challenging our abortion laws so to put this in context back in twenty thirteen Sarah wanted a pregnancy repose by how that city is setting about teaching the world how at last to make pizzas properly news that Marianne Koch a well known and well connected businessman is among four people formerly charged with the murder of young Kushciak and ripping up some basil they didn't have to Martos back then the plants had been brought over from Peru but was only used arent dog looks like it's alive looks like an octopus with oil on the on to have a direct contact with ugly guys I think the future is maybe inside of our newsrooms but it could be dangerous future absolutely absolutely bourgeois about Putin jubilee on Ju it's filing a report from his bedroom those girls a Turkish internet news being that we are on the beginning of between journalism and organized crime the wheels of Justice move slowly and Slovakia but the trial of money and Kochman Fiancee Martina Kushner of volcano mattress it's controlled invest Mr Kouchner who denies any wrongdoing is accused of ordering the killing old but there's one place where pizzas are really different the place where they were invented getting on for three hundred years ago this report from John Lawrenson and and his alleged co conspirators is the highest priority criminal case in Slovak history and the trial could begin within months allegations old is laboring under a massive culinary misconception pizzas the original ones in any case not stiff and they are not crunchy generally track investigative journalist who worked closely with young could seok on a number of stories closely watching Slovakia these days well not these days from the Kuchiak case continues Robe Cameron d-w prog you're listening to inside here up people eat a pizza all over the world Australia has just finished off an artichoke olive anchovy Mozzarella Basil and Tomato Capriccio so I guess if I was going to describe it to someone who's never had all general luchino making the same pizza as the first ever pizza which is made right here in seventeen thirty eight plus slapping it around forbid data in in the inside of our media inside our newsroom so I think the maybe new journalism of investigations you're isn't tasted the dripping pizza which is still on the menu here the pizzeria full Talbot and it is delicious the laws completely translucent when it comes out of the Oven Dell's is that we use more water and less yeast so our pizzas are or moist we leave the dough to rise slowly for twenty four hours equitably the fruit which was yellow never read was believed to be poisonous which is not silly as it sounds as the plot is from the same family as deadly nightshade gives a surprisingly subtle taste of Italian hand but it's not just this pizza is all nippon pieces that different Jason Bells runner originally from awesome also stems and leaves are baldly poisonous anyway on that first tomatoes pizza the oil cheese basil bit of pepper have to protect not
