Top Three Tipples

With so many party opportunities in December, there are a great many chances to select your ideal festive beverage. Do you opt for a classic Espresso Martini, stick to your favourite pint, or dabble with a bold Malbec?

Well, don’t get your tinsel in a tangle, because we’ve picked our top three tipples to toast the season.

True Winter Warmer

This definitive winter beer and a long-time favourite, Winter Warmer is a champion cask ale that is an essential warmer during the winter months.

Luscious and full bodied, with a powerful mouth-coating flavour leading to a bittersweet, vinous finish. Rich ruby coloured beer, almost red when viewed in the glow of firelight.

Blessed with a complex fruity nose with hints of candy, this beer is easily enjoyed with either sweet or savoury snacks. What’ll it be mince pie or sausage roll?

Tis the Season to Sparkle

No Christmas celebration would be truly complete without a glass of something fizzy, and our go-to bubbly is Nyetimber’s Classic Cuvee.

 In the heart of rural Sussex, Nyetimber craft their Classic Cuvee, which is the ideal occasion drink for toasting the season. The pale-golden hue and fine bubbles, coupled with a palate of honey, almond, pastry and baked apples give it more than a hint of decadence.

Whether you’re raising a glass at the bar with friends, popping corks at midnight to welcome in the new year, or enjoying a romantic fireside dinner for two, this is the sparkling wine for you.

Some Like it Hot

Richly spiced Mulled Wine has been the festive drink of choice in England since the Victorian era and there are still so many reasons to select this seasonal staple!

* Its smell & taste are full of the joys of Christmas – zingy orange, cinnamon, star anise – yum!

*It’s exclusive – only readily available for a few months of the year, so no chance of chugging it on our sunny patio in summertime!

*It is warming, comforting and guaranteed to banish your inner Grinch and evoke your Christmas spirit. So, if you’re pine-ing for the ultimate Christmas drink, then this is the one for you!

So there you have it. Our top three drinks to ‘cheers’ with your loved ones this Christmas…and beyond.
