Valentine’s Day is just round the corner, it’s taking place on the long weekend together with Chinese New Year 2021, thus taking some limelight away from it. This would also be the time to celebrate a festive long weekend together with Valentine’s Day celebration! A perfect time to raise a glass to your loved ones, here are some Valentine’s Day Drinks Gift Guides for him and for her!
For Valentine’s Day, we usually associate Champagne on this romantic day. How about considering other drinks? Maybe it’s time to visit English Sparkling Wine as a bubbly alternative. English Sparking Wine production is expected to double over the next decade, they are taking over the date night tipple of choice, with Nyetimber leading the way, looking forward to their bumper harvest of English Sparking Wine.
Nyetimber is available to purchase online in Singapore via Analogue Wine Merchants. They currently have two Rosé options to suit various budgets:
This beautiful sunset-pink Multi-Vintage rosé offers a unique combination of aromas, including British summer fruits and shortbread. Its creamy, round texture and refreshing redcurrant, raspberry and cherry flavours give it an elegant and silky finish.
The first ever Prestige Cuvee rosé made in England, 1086 Rosé represents the pinnacle of Nyetimber’s winemaking. Their 2010 vintage celebrates a pure expression of Pinot Noir red fruit, alongside floral and pastry notes (the result of many years of ageing on the lees). The body and supple texture of this wine, mean weightier poultry and seafood pair perfectly.
Asakura Premium Koji Whisky was recently launched in Singapore by Kyushu Spirits. It’s distilled from 100% local Japanese barley (mug) and matured in oak sherry casks, combined with traditional koji fermentation, giving a distinctively smooth taste and texture to this whisky, created in a single distillery.
Asakura Premium radiates a deep golden hue, reminiscent of the fields of their origin. Scents of honey, vanilla and coconut from the oak cask, combined with a hint of soft white florals, lure the nose. On the palate, notes of honey work with hints of buttery brown sugar and cinnamon with a touch of yuzu zest.
Asakura Premium is available to purchase in Singapore through Cellarbrations and retails for SGD$198 (currently on promotion for SGD$152)
Wishing all an advanced Happy Valentine’s Day 2021! Have a great time together enjoying your drinks! Cheers!
