If the Little Tipple’s Gaudi-esque sign above the entrance doesn’t give you a clue about the individuality of this family-run village shop in Long Ashton, near Bristol, then the weird and wonderfully organic timber counter and fixtures that greet you once inside certainly will.

It’s like a grotto, with every nook and cranny filled with interesting wines from small family vineyards from around the world and full-bodied craft beers from local breweries. And that’s before you realise that, squeezed between more familiar bottles, there are also some rather remarkable and tempting single malt whiskies, vintage ports, liqueurs, sherries and ciders each individually selected by its owners.

Norman Gover, from The Little Tipple, is officially taking part in the world's largest charitable on-road event for owners of classic and vintage styled motorcycles on Sunday 23 May 2021.

Since 2012 distinguished gentlefolk from cities across the world have ridden to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.

Men die on average six years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons and, sadly, the number of men that are suffering is growing. So, before Norman presses his tweed and polishes his boots, he's asking you to join him in raising funds and awareness for these meaningful causes by donating what you can to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
