Champagne 2018 GIN 2017 Sparkling Wine 2018

Harry Megan : must have Wedding tipples !


This weeks article will be a short one. I’m currently in Champagne and Alsace conducting 2 interviews for the website and I thought it would be a good idea πŸ’‘ to publish a short piece on the big day for the reluctant royal πŸ‘‘

Prince Harry and Megan get married tomorrow and there seems no better way to showcase British alcohol 🍷. Both wine and spirits.

We currently have 124 wine producers in πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ and some are more prominant than others

Three that stand out for their style passion and popularity : Camel valleyHattingley Valley and Black chalk

Β£25.16 with a case price from camel valley

A fresh and fruity fizz, perfect for all celebrations. With English hedgerow scents and a touch of honey 🍯 on the palate.

 

A limited release, this wine is a classic blend of grapes from their vineyard. It has a fine mousse with soft approachable fruit with a delicate oak character.

Β£80 direct from producer.

The use of oak barrels provide this wine with depth and complexity. The result is a fruit driven, perfectly balanced, crisp English sparkling wine.

Β£35 direct from producer.

 

Links to producers can be seen above

If you don’t fancy sparkling wine why not try some cocktails 🍹 to while away the 10 hours of πŸ“Ί your about to watch.

What better way than to enjoy the “ginger cocktail” and the “absent father” cocktails
