A Royal toast to the Jubilee with an elegant British fizz
What better way to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee than with a glass of British fizz? Our selection includes, among others, the exceptional Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve, £39.99, from Kent. Bright gold in colour, this blend highlights red fruit aromas of cherry and strawberry, which then develop into attractive fresh pastry notes with a touch of cinnamon and spice.
For an exceptional wine from a smaller producer, this time in Devon, our Lyme Bay Brut Reserve, £22.49, is fruit driven with lemony notes and a creamy, mousse finish.
A milestone such as a Platinum Jubilee surely deserves nothing but the best of British after all and at Mr & Mrs Fine Wine we are pleased to be able to support and stock a range of the finest!
As we celebrate all things British and why not continue with a cocktail? Our Soho Street Cocktails, £28.99, are even better than that, they’re ready to go and just awaiting ice! For fans of fruity flavours our Passion Star and Raspberry Daiquiri are sure to be a hit and there’s even a reviving Espresso Martini to take your party from day to night.
