The Antique Wine Company

While the Antique Wine Company provides a “gold standard” for wines sales, education and events, its owner Stephen Williams go far beyond the expected into new and creative activities. For example, they are selling an amazing array of rare and elegant Dalmore Scotches. Some people tend to think of different types of aficionados as devotees of only one beverage like great Cabs, but this is not the case. Many wine drinkers love a good glass of scotch now and again. This Dalmore array provides endless opportunities for enjoying scotches before a meal, after dinner or just for the pleasure of savoring it.

One of the other unique features of the Antique Wine Company is its investment in education and training. Many wine dealers have the occasional evening tasting as a marketing event. The AWC goes beyond the continual, sniff, swirl spit routine. For a creative event, they have a casino night with participants betting on wines. The results of the betting seem to be realistic evaluations of the quality and marketability of the wines served during the evening. If you love wine and really want to become a professional, the Antique Wine Company wine school has a superb Sommelier program to train you to be a world class wine expert.

Another service that they provide is helping you build and manage your own cellar. If you are a busy entrepreneur, professional or royalty, the Antique Wine Company has staff who can work with you to achieve a superior wine cellar and inventory. Their staff are trained in building inventory and estimating the value of your cellar. You don’t have to leave your office. You can use your computer to check your inventory online to find out how many bottles of Petrus and Chateau Laffite you drank celebrating your anniversary or the birth of a child.

What if you want a really unusual and unique wine? Perhaps you have a friend who deals with wine as a competition and tries to one-up you by having a vertical tasting of Chateau Laffite from the twenties to fifties. The Antique Wine Company gives you subtle, understated elegant ways to show real wine quality. They can supply a vertical tasting of Château Garuaud-Larose 1825, 1835, 1845, and 1855 which are all pre-phyllorexia vines. Let your friend try to surpass that magnificent tasting. The Antique Wine Company can work with you to develop any unsurpassable tasting that you want or match any wine for any event like Wagu beef for a steak dinner.

Egypt President Wants Arab Coalition Against ISIS

The terrorist extremist group ISIS has been gaining power throughout the Middle East throughout the last year, and as attacks have become more blatant against citizens of individual nations through this region, talks of taking up arms against these terrorist has started to grow more and more by the day. When the group started to take control of regions throughout Iraq, Iraq request assistance form the United States. Zeca Oliveira ( knows, without the desire of placing troops on the ground, the US provided air strikes against ISIS targets and, while it has damaged an extensive amount of resources and taken out a large amount of ISIS rebels, the numbers seem to have swelled in support of the group. However, with the recent execution of Arab nationals from around the region, more and more Middle Eastern countries have seen the need to start up the defensive against the threat that is on their back door. Egypt’s President is one such individual.

Egypt’s President recently called out other Arab national to join forces in order to attack the terrorist group. The president has stated a unified Arab force is necessary to take out the group. Both Jordan and the United Arab Emirates have provided military help to Egypt.

While these attacks have been deadly, it may ultimately bring together a more unified Middle East, and with assistance from the United States and Great Britain, it may also improve relations with these countries as well.

Debate about Fluoride in Drinking Water Continues in England

There is an article on The Telegraph Website about a scientific study done in England at the University of Kent which concludes that fluoride in drinking water in parts of England is causing weight gain and depression. The findings of the survey were denied by Public Health England, who has maintained for decades that fluoride in the drinking water is perfectly safe and key to fighting tooth decay.

The scientists for the University of Kent say that fluoride affects the thyroid gland in a negative way, and as a consequence people, like Dan Newlin, who drink water with high amounts of fluoride experience weight gain and become depressed in high numbers. In support of their findings, they compare incidences of weight gain and depression in areas of England where there are high amounts of fluoride in the drinking water to areas where the amounts are low.

This is a debate which has gone on for years both in the United States and England. Fluoride is added to the water in the first place since it helps keep bacteria from attacking tooth enamel.

In my opinion, the idea of the government putting anything in the drinking water – even if it is something that is good for them – is simply unsettling to people. Therefore, they look for evidence that fluoride is bad for them. I doubt that it is. Tooth decay is the larger evil.
