  • Craft Spirits Festival – Kleiner Nachtrag

    Kleiner Nachtrag zum Craft Spirits Festival vom vorletzten Wochenende: Nachdem ich nach dem dritten Mezcal nurnoch sehr mittelmäßige Fotos aus dem Handgelenk geschossen habe, die in etwa die Atmosphäre auf dem Festival einfangen sollten gibt’s heute nochmal ein paar hochaufgelöste Leckerbissen von der Destille Berlin (den ausführlichen Beitrag seht ihr hier)   * * * Alle […]

They are extremely juicy and you can really taste the bright sunbeams that made them grow […]
