Inspired by the heart of Topanga's music scene in the 60s and 70s, 19 Candles' {#5 Roadhhouse} captures the boozy, sweet and woody scent of 'The Corral' - a Californian roadhouse which played host to artists like The Eagles, Joni Mitchell and The Rolling Stones. With star anise, juniper, lime and benzoin, it's a seductive unexpected blend that's ideal for an intimate winter-time party with friends (and whisky).
