Work. Life. Balance. It’s all in sharp focus right now. In our 4th instalment of a Sensory First Aid Kit for these socially isolating times you can [listen here] to the Raconteur’s playlist for “working from home” and get lost somewhere in time. It’s a motley mix of lo-fi electronic jazz chill hop.

It might sound all late-night bars, cool laneways, and no lock-out laws (aka Melbourne groove), but it’s distinctly for sunny morning aperitifs anywhere. Sound up!


Our friends at Seedlip are world leaders in making botanical extracts for non-alcoholic beverages. Our favourite, Grove 42, is an ode to all things citrusy. With blood orange, mandarin, lemon and bitter orange followed by a twist of spice from ginger and lemongrass, this is an invigorating boost to uplift your mood.
