Borrago

By Alex Noble

We often hear people talking about how they’re looking forward to ‘Dry January.’ A time when they can allow themselves a rest period from all the partying and heavy drinking from the previous year, which crescendos around the Christmas period. Unfortunately, it’s seldom the case that this pre-January hype is all in vein, as people crumble […]

Ballantines Warming Spices Edition

By Alex Noble

Christmas is a wonderful time of year that, much like a great whisky, never fails to give me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. However, Christmas only captures our attention for around one month per year (thankfully) whereas a whisky can assist you at any time of the year, and provide you with inner warmth whenever you […]

By Adam

At Dapper Chapper HQ, coffee is king and in advance of the weather making that coffee run a little less desirable, we’ve been testing out some more machines – a must have for all ‘at home’ baristas. Previously this year we raved about the Melitta TS Smart – a machine that has now become an integral part of our team! Delighted with […]

King of Soho Review

By Alex Noble

Quadruple distilled using traditional methods by an eleventh generation, master distiller, this London Dry Gin is crafted with twelve botanicals, delivering an interesting if uninspiring flavour profile. It was created to pay homage to the ‘King of Soho,’ (English publisher, club owner, and property developer) Paul Raymond, who died in 2008, by his son Howard. Paul […]

Where to get good wine this Summer: Introducing Bird in Hand

By Adam

What an epic summer we’ve had so far in the U.K. The sun’s been shining relentlessly and the BBQ has well and truly earned its place on the patio. Many an evening has been spent outside, wine in hand, grilling up some dinner. Such is the frequency of this scenario, I’ve actually adopted a keen […]

Malfy Gin con Limone Review

By Michelle Connolly

Big, bold citrusy flavours are the main characteristic of this beautiful lemon based Gin. Despite the historical heritage of the area – Moncalieri on the outskirts of Turin is famed for liqueurs like Martini Rossi, Carpano and Cinzano – it was a leap of faith that paid off for Fratelli Ferrero di Riccardo, opening the […]

Why I’ve Introduced a Standing Desk : VARIDESK Review

By Adam

I work with a team of guys all younger than me. I’ve only just snuck the wrong side of 30 but at times I can hear myself sounding like a (very on-trend) 70 year old, as I bumble on about the benefits of Chiropractic care, Yoga and Pilates. It all started two years ago when […]

Oris Artelier Calibre 113 – A Real Watch for Real People

By Alex Noble

A question we’re often asked at DCHQ, is what makes Chappers tick? And by that, we assume they mean what is it that really stimulates us and gets us uber excited? Well, apart from a great Scotch, a Winchester chair and some pleasant company, we also love to look great and I don’t think you could […]
