But the most important member of the T & G team is Georgina who makes the best gin and tonics in London, maybe the world.   Definitely better than Scott’s seafood restaurant that claims the honor.   The gin is special but she puts a basil leaf in each glass.  Great touch.  THANK YOU Georgina.

Christopher Gumbs is the representative for Edward Green shoes, and the two gentlemen to his left are Adrian Gilbert of Sartorial Footwear and Steve Allen, Production Director for Sartorial Footwear.   They made a beautiful pair of shoes for me.  They make velvet and leather slippers with stunning quilting inside the shoe.  You can be sure that I’m not just going to wear these by the fireside sipping Cognac.   These shoes are going out on the town.
