Pick Up Something Special
Treat yourself to something special! If you’re looking for the perfect gift or an amazing pairing for a delicious dinner, have a look at these tried and true ideas for picking the right bottle for the right occasion:
Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc
Sipping while you cook an amazing dinner:
This juicy, fresh white from New Zealand is great for sipping on it’s own and with food. The mouth-watering acidity, along with lemon, stonefruit and grass flavours means it’s great for whetting the appetite and can easily pair with light appetizers like salads and smoked salmon.
Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Pairing with an elegant steak dinner:
A nice juicy ribeye or striploin cooked to perfection needs a great wine to match. This lovely red from California is rich and full-bodied, with notes of mocha, dark berry and licorice. Let it breathe for about an hour before you enjoy it with that awesome steak you’ve just cooked.
Plantation 20th Anniversary Rum
Winding down after a busy week:
Start your weekend in style by pouring yourself a glass of this very special blended rum from Barbados. Plantation is made by blending a selection of 10 year old rums and then ageing the blend for another 2-10 years in cognac casks. The result is an irresistibly smooth tipple with fragrant notes of vanilla, chocolate and cinnamon.
Treating yourself to a relaxing night in:
This delightfully unique gin is really made to savour. Infused with cucumber, rose petal, coriander and citrus, this English gin is made in small batches and is wonderfully smooth and fragrant. Try mixing yourself a fancy Gin and Tonic or even a Gin cocktail made with cucumber.
Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label
Best for celebrating a big achievement:
The Veuve Clicquot House in Champagne, France, makes one of the most famous champagnes in the world. Strict specifications for production methods yield a bubbly that is elegant and complex, with flavours of ripe apple, peach, vanilla, brioche and kumquat. Great for toasting a special achievement with friends or enjoying with a loved one.
Best for impressing your boss with an awesome gift:
For the Scotch connoisseur in your life, reach for Talisker Storm, a blended Scotch from the Isle of Skye. This rugged, intense and smoky scotch is balanced with waves of smoky, sweet and savory notes. It’s a great pair for smoked salmon, aged cheeses and dark chocolate
