The Sparkling Wine – HUBA
HUBA Wine Growing and Oenology is a new family estate, creating their wines in the image of their noble soil, gentle sunshine, mild climate and the hard work gifted by their people.
They worked hard to include their vineyards in the Agri-Environment Climate Programme (KOPOP), where they protect their soil against erosion through continuous grass planting, keeping up to date on pest control and not adding any synthetic mineral nitrogen and avoiding the use of insecticides.
Vina Huba Martinčič – Vialina Brut Rosé – Tasting Notes
Aroma – “Soft pink floral, freshly picked, ripe strawberries, crushed raspberries, pink blossom, lavender and more natural goodness on the aroma.”
Flavour – “Sharper strawberries initially, fueled by the bubbles, a touch of herbal gardens with nettles and chives, then back to the berries, with redcurrant, black cherry juice and raspberries on the palate.”

The Rum – Pull The Pin
Founder, Tom Foster grew up as a curious kid in a family of chefs, joining the military at seventeen, Tom Foster got the opportunity to travel across the world, picking up knowledge of the local spirit production and experiencing the world’s many spices, he became known as the ‘Spice Soldier’, helping to boost morale with experimental spirits and spiced-up rations.
While in the military his love of Rum grew, from enjoying it as a drink on Christmas morning to warming him up after ice-breaking drills in Norway.
After an injury, it was time to leave his Army Commando career behind and step into his next adventure.
“Spice livens up your life, leads you on adventures and warms your body and soul. For me, creating Pull The Pin was always going to be my natural next step.” – Tom Foster, Founder
If Tom is Pull The Pin’s mellow Spiced Rum then Kerry Francis has to be our Passionfruit & Pineapple Rum… full of sunshine and zest for life.
Kerry and Tom first met while working in their military careers, he soon realised she’d be a perfect business partner, who would help bring Pull The Pin into the world.
Pull The Pin – Raspberry & Strawberry Rum – Tasting Notes – “A delicate sweetness and delicious notes of strawberries and raspberries in a smoothly blended rum, with a red berry citrus/sharpness to complete the pull.”
