For Him DIY BEER KIT £65
Coopers have made this brewery in a box kit that we have in very limited supply. It contains everything you need to make a batch of Coopers great lager yourself including the bottles!!
SINGLE CASK STRENGTH CHIEFTAINS MORTLACH 18 YEAR OLD £60
For Her EDINBURGH GIN – RASPBERRY £15
We cannot keep enough of this on the shelves a lighter 20% ABV gin drink that is great on its own or with a dash of tonic or lemonade.
BOLLINGER RD CHAMPAGNE £135
If you’re looking to indulge your loved one this year there is only one option. This wine has spent over 10 years maturing in the bottle on its lees (this is a technical term folks!) prior to the RD ( recent disgorgement 2009.) This means there is a very complex yet subtle fresh wine here that for me towers over Dom Perignon and Krug as the connoisseurs choice, 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay give this fizz a fizz drier than others due to a lower dosage.
For Dad ISLE OF SKYE 8 YEAR OLD BLENDED WHISKY £17 DOWN TO £15
CATENA MALBEC £13.75
For Mum VILLA DORAL PROSECCO £9.50 DOWN TO £8.50 until the 31st
This organic fizz is not a full Spumante sparkling meaning it has a less vigorous bubble and is softer with more fruit. Delicious on its own of with some strawberry in the glass.
ESK VALLEY SAUVIGNON BLANC £9
A classic New Zealand offering here from this small producer who uses just 12 small open concrete fermentation tanks to let wild yeast produce the wine. This gives a wonderful complexity and a wine that changes year after year.
