Sunshine on Tiny’s
Summer is upon which means it’s time to dust off the barbecue and your favourite flip-flops and stock up on sun cream, barbecue food, delicious booze and possibly an umbrella…. Last year we were blessed with a glorious long summer and we can only hope this year is a repeat of 2018. One thing is for sure, our summer selection will be bigger and better than ever. Whether you’re soaking up the sun or hiding from the inevitable downpours, we are on hand.
Summer is our favourite season to pair with wine, with Provence Rose coming out of hiding, light juicy reds in full flow and fresh zippy whites bringing our palates to life. We also see the boom within the boom of Gin and our old fried Aperol Spritz awakes from its hibernation. Sunshine needs fresh and vibrant flavours with a good balance between rich fruit and cooling freshness and we can help you select the right beer, wine, spirit or cocktail to strike that balance for you.
Here are a few of our summer selections.
Jean Perrier Savoie Pinot Noir £17
Savoie is a small region in Eastern France that has emerged in recent years as the source of high quality elegant reds. This Pinot Noir has all the hallmarks of top shelf Burgundy but at a fraction of the price. It’s all about purity and precision, bright red fruits with a touch of earth and a whiff of smoke on the finish. This is a stunning expression of Pinot Noir and can be served slightly chilled – perfect for a sunny day in the garden.
Bobby’s Gin £47
Bobby’s is a Dutch gin inspired by an old recipe of founder Sebastian’s Grandfather. Inspired by Indonesian heritage, it combines Eastern spices with Western citrus botanicals to create a gin that is bursting with lemongrass on the nose, with just a touch of sweet spice and a herbaceous edge. It truly is a wonderful gin – serve with tonic over ice with a wedge of orange and a few cloves for the ultimate Bobby’s experience.
Chateau Gairoird Provence Rosé £14.50
If you’re not drinking Provence Rosé in the summer then you really need to have a word with yourself. This rosé is light and fresh, pale pink in colour, with delicate strawberry and raspberry notes, a touch of white peach and a steely finish. Wine doesn’t get much more refreshing than this bad boy.
Cloudwater Welcome To your Life £5
Critically acclaimed Cloudwater have graced us with a fruity sour which is the kind of beer you can imagine drinking on a sun-soaked tropical beach. They’ve upped the fruit levels in this mango and passion fruit sour and that richness comes through, cut through by a tangy finish to keep it lively and fresh. Limited stock of this stunner so get it while you can.
