The madness continues!

There are still a couple of puzzling things arising from the Covid-19 story. For example, I believe that, at least some of Spain’s comparative success in containing the virus over recent months has been down to the rigid enforcement of the use of masks everywhere in public (including out on the street). It is very odd, therefore, that the Spanish government has recently decided to relax this a little, just at the exact moment that the virulent new Delta variant has hit the Spanish peninsula! This is a little like the UK Government allowing flights from India to continue for weeks after this new ‘Indian’ variant was discovered. These things are complete mystery to me….
On a more positive note, our warehouse is full (of orders), albeit that since taking my photos a couple of days ago, most of these pallets have actually been collected. We have gone from full to empty in 48 hours! Our mission now is to restock, and we have been busy preparing tanks and trying hard to procure all the ‘dry goods’ that we need. (Dry goods are the bottles, corks, capsules, labels and cases). I used the word ‘trying’, because many of our suppliers have been hit by the same tsunami of business as we have, and like us, they are desperately trying to fulfil orders as quickly as they can. I have heard first hand that even some of the biggest spirit brands have been hit by the same delays, leading to stock shortages on shop shelves.
However, I guess that we shouldn’t be complaining about having too many orders….
