Gin Glorious Gin!

Gin

This fantastic gin is family produced and hand distilled in small batches using botanicals sourced from Macclesfield Forest. The gin uses organic grain spirit, organic certified juniper berries and coriander seeds along with wild bilberries, gorse flowers, raspberries and moss. To this magical mix, the spirit is added, before being distilled through a copper condenser. To give the final flourish, pure spring water is added resulting in a flavour packed Premium London Dry Gin.

The gin comes in the most exquisite printed ceramic bottles complete with a one of a kind commissioned design by papercut artist, Suzy Taylor. Not only is the bottle extremely beautiful, the porcelain means that the gin will not be affected by direct sunlight and is better safeguarded against temperature variations.

We’re not the only fans of Forest Gin. In 2016, Forest Gin was awarded an unprecedented TWO separate double-gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirit Awards, confirming this Gin as one of the world’s very finest.

Now enjoy 10% off during April and May.

Christmas Drinks Guide

When it comes to Christmas Day, while the turkey is usually the star of the show, we think the wine should get top billing. So here’s our guide to wine pairings for Christmas lunch.

Aperitif

Whether you choose to enjoy while opening gifts or when guests arrive, nothing sets the tone for a fabulous lunch better than a glass of champagne. So let the corks pop, the bubbles flow and the good times roll with our Deutz Brut Classic Champagne.

Alternatively, if you fancy offering guests something a bit different our Forest Gin and Gonzalez Byass 12 Anos Palo Cortado Sherry are bound to delight, while not over filling hungry tums.

The Main Event

Turkey

Turkey is a medium-weight poultry with a delicate flavour, so it’s important not to over power the turkey with the wine. For red wines, go for lighter wines, such as Pinot Noir, while a slightly fuller bodied white wine such a Chardonnay will also work well.

We recommend our Undurraga Sibaris Reserva Especial Pinot Noir 2013 and Jackson Estate Shelter Belt Chardonnay 2011.

Roast Beef

BodegasBeroniaReserva2010-2000x2000

If you’ve opted for a rich, rib of beef then our Beronia Reserva 2010 DOCa Rioja works a treat.

Venison

Montepulciano

Venison is a rich, lean gamey meat which works well with medium-bodied red wines. Our Cantina Zaccagnini Tralcetto Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2013 is a perfect pick.

Salmon

Chardonnay is an obvious pick for Salmon (see our Jackson Estate Shelter Belt Chardonnay 2011) but our Cantina Campagnola Bardolino Chiaretto Classico 2013 is an excellent rose alternative.

Digestif

Noval Silval 2005

Quite simply, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a Port. Our Quinta do Noval Silval Vintage Port is exquisite and the perfect way to round off a wonderful Christmas.

Cheers!
