A visit – by appointment only – to Peter Bignell's Belgrove Distillery near Kempton, north of Hobart, should be on every whisky-lover's bucket list. It's not glamorous, but it's incredibly atmospheric. The casks of slowly maturing spirit are stored in old stables on the early 19th-century farm. There's no fancy tasting room: Bignell will plonk your glass down on an upturned barrel and draw a sample with a siphon tube.
Hong Kong | Penfolds latest limited-release red wine, a multi-vintage blend of Grange called g3, signals a move away from recent hyper-exclusive luxury releases by making the wine itself the hero, not just the packaging. The company launched g3 yesterday at Hong Kong's Liang Yi Museum, which features priceless furniture from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Only 1,200 bottles are available and each comes with a $3,000 price tag.
I've come to sample some of New Zealand's most sought-after pinot noirs at a vertical tasting spanning the first 20 vintages from Felton Road, one of the leading producers of the variety in Central Otago. But the wine that has made me go weak at the knees is a riesling. It's not that the pinots aren't splendid. They are. It's a real treat to taste the older wines, from the late 1990s, all the way through to the latest releases, the 2016s. There are plenty of gems among them.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
