The Week in Pictures
A project to protect at-risk salmon has been announced, supported by a charitable partnership with The Macallan.
Robert Mitchell, Ghillie at The Macallan Estate, said: “As proud custodians of The River Spey, everyone who works at The Macallan Estate is passionate about preserving the wildlife which lives here. There are many projects underway to protect the biodiversity and habitats in our grounds, from removing old building structures to reshaping the riverbank and improving the temperature of the water.
“The River Spey has been a source of inspiration for The Macallan since our early days of whisky making nearly 200 years ago, and protecting this sanctuary is very important to us. The conservation work being undertaken by the Atlantic Salmon Trust is vital in protecting the species, and our partnership is based on a shared spirit of sustainability and community as together we care for the extraordinary river and its natural surroundings.”
A rosé festival is popping up in Coven Garden for three weeks from 17 May, with interactive popups including a Magners Cider Garden and a converted VW truck from Hun Wines. More than 30 varieties of rosé wine will be on offer as venues prepare to celebrate the anticipated return of indoor dining.
The expected sale price for a bottle Petrus 2000 ‘space wine’ that was aged in space is US$1m (£720,000), according to a spokesperson at Christie’s action house.
