Bolney Estate – Cuvee 201

The Bolney English wines are something of classic taste. Sussex vineyards are producing a great stock of wines and the Bolney Estate sparkling wines are absolutely no different. Their vintage award winning wines are an amazing addition to good food served amongst friends and family. Their range will not disappoint. We were sent their Cuvee 2013 which is bursting with notes of late summer stone fruits like sweet redcurrents, blueberry and plum. Their vineyards are making good use of the South Downs soils as the flavours here are bold and complex and serve as a strong contender for a good quality late summer evening drink. Ordering from their website could not be easier and the selection is strong. Still or sparkling, red, white or rose – The Bolney estate are offering an impressive range including their popular Pinot Noir. With over 40 years in the business and 3 generations of family involved in the making, The Bolney Estate English wines are a good choice for any wine drinker to enjoy.

Caorunn (Ka-runn) small batch Scottish gin

It is fair to say we enjoy our food and drink here at H&N HQ. The words like Speyside and Highlands usually lend themselves to a bottle of Scotch but in this case we are talking about an impressive and super sweet tasting hand crafted artisanal Scottish gin. Subtly packed with Perthshire raspberries and bottled in a trendy 50cl bottle was some of the best gin we have ever tried. Seriously good. Their website is loaded with fantastic recipes on how best to try their produce. We used handfuls of ice and lemonade to make our gin and the flavours were incredible. This bottle is something quite special and if you are a gin lover and yet to try then this is a must. Gin lovers aside, this will appeal to anyone who likes good quality and fine taste to their drinks. Botanical flavours are strong with Caorunn and this is definitely one we recommend.

Montezuma’selection of milk chocolate

Montezuma’s range of British made chocolate is impressive. We were sent their gigantic sized bars of their delicious milk chocolate and peanut butter and milk chocolate with almonds and butterscotch. Montezuma’s is nothing short of a Willy Wonka style homegrown chocolate factory churning out the creamiest and most delicious range of British made chocolate bars. We were impressed with our selection and didn’t spend long before we were picking a few more ready for the over indulgent Christmas season. They are also producing a fantastic range of no added sugar, soya, gluten free and made without milk chocolate bars. As well as a whole vegan range there are hampers and festive treats lined up on their online store. Montezumas is also available nationwide and they are worth grabbing off the shelf for a super sweet treat.
