Cognac approves 2,300 ha of vine plantings for 2021

The Charente area's request for 2,306 hectares of new planting authorisations for 2021 was passed on 18 November by the standing committee of the national wine appellation board at the National Institute of Origin and Quality (INAO). It has been sent for approval to the FranceAgriMer specialist wine council due to convene on 9 December. While many vineyards are requesting exemption from national insurance contributions and have benefited from distillation aid, Charente's desire to expand has been the subject of much debate.

Booze has a long history on the space station – even though NASA has banned drinking in space for almost 50 years

Booze has a long history on the space station – even though NASA has banned drinking in space for almost 50 years

Researchers sent red wine into orbit last year so astronauts could study how space affects it.
It's not the first time booze launched into space: Russian cosmonauts have smuggled liquor into orbit, and NASA astronauts have occasionally indulged, though NASA banned drinking in orbit.
More alcohol consumption in space could happen once private companies start launching civilians.

Time can be many things. For Benjamin Franklin, it was money. Albert Einstein famously focused more on its relative nature. For all of us, on a daily basis, it is something that can be lost or wasted, and occasionally needs killing.

In 2021, Cognac can plant 2,306 ha of vines versus 1.5 ha for Bordeaux and 0.1 ha for Alsace

On 20 January, FranceAgriMer's specialist wine board approved a quota for new plantings totalling 5,101 hectares for 2021. This translates to a 20% drop in acreage compared to the maximum threshold voted in 2020. As Covid puts pressure on decisions for the future, “all the producer regions have made an effort this year”, said the board’s chairman Jérôme Despey. “There were no issues, all applications were approved”.

Japanese Whisky Regulations are Changing. What Does That Mean for Your Next Pour?

Is the liquid in that bottle really Japanese whisky? Soon, it will be easier to tell.

Japan’s spirits producers have banded together to define what exactly constitutes Japanese whisky. The initiative follows outcry that rules have been way too flexible, permitting whisky distilled outside of Japan and liquor that isn’t whisky, like shochu, to be labeled as Japanese whisky.
