TIME TO EMBRACE A BEESOU
I'm buzzing about this new bittersweet pour made from Cotswold honey. Fermented to an 11% ABV drink, Beesou is a beautifully bitter drink with a honeyed hue. Right now I've got one in my bonnet for a Beegroni (gin, white vermouth), a Beelini (peach juice, sparkling wine) or a spritz (sparkling wine, wedge of pink grapefruit). Join my hive now with 20% off! Sting them with 'Sitwell20' at checkout!
YOU'LL GO NUTS ABOUT THIS NEW CHOCOLATE
I come across new brands of chocolate all the time but this one is really special. Hand-crafted, in eco-friendly packaging, it's made by pastry chef Peta Leith in Bedfordshire. But more importantly it's delicious, the best I've tasted for ages. Especially The Nuts. Try The Nuts. And they'll give you 10% off and a free bag of their new nougatine if you spend over £25.

WILLIAM'S WINE OF THE MONTH: FRESH PECORINO
And that's right, it's a wine, not a cheese. Pecorino, Tor Del Colle, Veneto 2021, with notes of white peach, pear and green apples, is an easy-drinking Italian wine for spring from Abruzzo. It's perfect on its own or with a light dish of chicken or fish and it costs just £11.50. On sale now at William's House Wines, the world's smallest wine store. Delivery in two/three days. Happy Sipping!

TIPPING FOR GROCERIES? YOU MUST BE JOKING!
The United States gave us wedding pre-nups, jeans and jazz and now there could be a new custom coming our way from New York: tipping staff in grocery stores. Could you handle this? Or do you think Britain still lags when it comes to service. Read the feature that lit up the comment section at The Telegraph when it was a published!
