Floral flourish

Bloom Gin is a premium London Dry

Gin, inspired by Master Distiller Joanne

Moore's English country garden. Moore,

the world's first female Master Gin

Distiller, wanted to create a delicate floral

gin and took inspiration from the flowers

in her garden. She used honeysuckle

and chamomile and added the citrus

fruit pomelo to make up the three

key botanicals for Bloom, each one

contributing to the delicate gin drinking

experience. The Bloom Gin gift box

includes a boxed 70cl bottle and bespoke

cocktail glass in which to try it. Available

from major retailers for £24.00.

White Christmas

Champagne Armand de Brignac's

striking hand-finished metalized bottles

are presented in a wooden lacquered

gift box. The house's acclaimed Blanc

de Blancs, made exclusively from white

grapes captures the culture of some

of the most lauded chardonnay plots

in France's Champagne region from

which you can savour the notes of pear,

hazelnut and spices. For the 'discerning',

its RRP is £590 per 75cl bottle. Its more

traditional style of Champagne, the Brut

Gold, is £300 per 75cl bottle.

Bee-ing serious

Honeybees will have travelled

approximately 2,500 miles in order

to make the honey that delicately

infuses each Limited Edition bottle of

new Warner Edwards Honeybee Gin.

Made on the Warner family's Falls Farm

in Northamptonshire with 28 natural

botanicals and a post distillation infusion

of honey giving a floral, zesty and spicy

finish. Each bottle is sold with a packet

of wildflower seeds to encourage the

planting of bee-friendly gardens and

spaces. Warner Edwards announced a

partnership with the Royal Horticultural

Society (RHS), which will receive a

portion of the proceeds from each bottle

sold. Matthew Pottage, curator of the

RHS Garden Wisley says, "In addition to

collaborating on each bottle to highlight

the plight of bees, we will be cultivating of

a bee sanctuary within the heather garden

of RHS Wisley.''

Festive Flavours

If a yuletide yearning for festive spices

sets in, perhaps Lyme Bay Winery's

seasonal Country Wines can cheer up

the coldest of winter nights. Inspired by

the most indulgent of Christmas desserts,

Lyme Bay's Christmas Pudding Wine is

the newest addition to the fold. For those

with a taste for the traditional, Lyme Bay's

award-winning Mulled Wine is also onhand, balanced blend of damson and

elderberry with notes of festive spices.

Just heat in a saucepan, along with an

optional glug of brandy.

Sparkling results

Luscombe's sophisticated drinks are a

treat for festive feasting, With a passion

for sourcing the very best ingredients

to create the tastiest fruity flavours

with minimal processing, Devon based

Luscombe Drinks have recently received

their 73rd Great Taste Award. Only natural

ingredients are used, never a concentrate;

and no artificial sweeteners, flavourings

or preservatives. Their Damascene Rose

Bubbly is a non-alcoholic alternative to

champagne which marries rose petals

with Muscat grape and is instantly

refreshing, with a hint of Sicilian lemon for

a bit of zing. If you'd rather have a drink

with a bold kick, go for a Hot Ginger Beer.

It goes well with spicy food and winter

hot-pots. Based on a farm on the edge

of Dartmoor in Devon, Luscombe Drinks

has been making fruit-based drinks with

natural Devon spring water since 1975.
