Limitless Are Leaves
It’s done. We tried everything we could, but summer passed us by with a damp squib – quite literally. However, who likes Summer anyway? It’s all about Autumn. Gold and red leaves litter the streets with colour, you can turn the heating up and get cosy on the sofa with a good show, some warming grub and a beautiful glass of something suitably autumnal.
Autumn matches perfectly with beautiful booze. Warming reds, nutty and aromatic whites and fizz, rich beers as well as the delightful world of whisky, brandy and spice laden cocktails. The wealth of options to help warm your cockles on the brisk evenings are limitless – luckily we’re here to give you some direction.
Firstly, to get your Autumn tastebuds going we’ve got two incredible tastings in November for you to get stuck into.
Thursday November 14th is our Wine Tasting. Eight of our favourite wines of the year, canapés and the pleasure of our company. Tickets are £25 and the evening will run from 8pm – 10pm.
Thursday November 28th is a World of Fizz Tasting. Six sparkling wines from around the world, plus canapés and EVEN MORE of our lovely company. As before, tickets are £25 and the evening will run from 8pm – 10pm.
Tickets for both tastings are available in store now.
If you need more inspiration to drink beautifully, here’s a few things we’ll be drinking over the coming weeks.
Pago de Tharsys ‘Medusa’ Bobal £10
Pago de Tharsys are an innovative winery nestled in land just west of Valencia. Their wines are all about the pure expression of their wonderful fruit. This Bobal is fresh and vibrant, with crunchy red fruits leading to a warming, spice laden, finish. An absolute steal at £10.
Monte di Grazia Amalfitana £23
Using indigenous varietals Tintore and Piedirosso, this Campanian red is bursting with dark fruits, with soft violet tones and juicy black cherry acidity. Made with minimal intervention and undoubtedly terroir driven, there is a slatey salinity underpinning those juicy dark fruits reminiscent of the mountains that breathe life to the grapes.
Cardenal Mendoza Solera Gran Reserva £50
This brandy is given its indulgently silky character by using barrels ex Pedro Ximinez barrels for ageing. This gives richness to the already powerful brandy, with notes of figs, caramel and chocolate raisins adding to the luscious red fruit character and vibrant nuttiness. Pound for pound one of the best Brandy’s available.
The Parrot Lounge £6
A collaboration from three of the best breweries in the world is always going to be special. Lost and Grounded, Burning Sky and Cloudwater have come together to produce this Imperial Stout that is rich and velvety, with layer upon layer of fruity, bitter chocolate and toasted nuts. The absolute perfect autumnal beer.
There’s a snapshot of our huge range of autumnal drops. Get yourself in and get those taste buds dancing in the autumnal hue.
