  1. Pellegrino Marsala Superiore Garibaldi Dolce NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    Pellegrino Marsala Superiore Garibaldi Dolce NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    £7.50

    £7.50

    Marsala is really a wonderful thing. Made in the area around the ancient coastal town of the same name on the far west coast of Sicily, it smacks of Italian sunshine. Indeed, if you've used up all your leave this year, this could make a fine replacement for a vacanza Italiana. With figs, prunes and mesmeric caramel depths from its two years in oak barrels, this is a real delight and, at a bargainous £7.50, it is so much cheaper than a holiday.

  2. Martini Bianco Vermouth

    Martini Bianco

    £10.25

    £10.25

    Martini Bianco is the Queen of Vermouth. In the past it has been referred to as Bianchissimo, meaning 'whitest' in Italian, and its soft vanilla notes have become instantly recognisable on lips over the years. Bianco has a unique wine base of white wines such as Trebbiano, gracing the vermouth with aromatic herbs and flowers.

  3. Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise Vidal-Fleury 2014 - Half Bottle - 375ml French Fortified Wine

    Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise Vidal-Fleury 2014 - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £12.75

    £12.75

    Muscat Blanc Petits Grains is a sneaky little grape. Although it's technically a white grape, some vines will produce berries that are a pink or reddish brown colour. A single vine has the potential to produce fruit of one colour one year, and a different colour the following year.

    This tiny chameleon fruit tends to stick to its true colours in the Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise region in the Rhône, where it is the primary variety grown. Here, the berries are used to make deliciously sweet and fresh wines like this one from Vidal-fleury with an abundance of fruit and honey aromas and flavours.

  4. Stanton and Killeen Rutherglen Muscat NV - Half Bottle - 375ml

    Stanton and Killeen Rutherglen Muscat NV - Half Bottle - 375ml

    £14.00

    £14.00

    You are what you eat, so the saying goes. And this is manifestly true in Stanton and Killeen's achingly delicious Rutherglen Muscat.

    What does the wine 'eat'? It eats up the hot Australian sun, the time-honoured techniques maintained by this family-run winery and it gobbles up the love they put into it. The result? A raisin-rich, nutty, orange blossom and lavender-flavoured amber nectar.

  5. La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Rouge 375ml

    La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Rouge - Half Bottle 375ml

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Whoosh! You hear that? That was the sound of ten thousand cherries, prunes and aniseed all splashing down into a mountain lake. That's not actually how they make La Quintinye Red, but it might as well be.

    Alter Ego: Carmen Miranda; this is one fruity beauty, with enough ripe flavours to send you salsa-ing your way all the way to the cocktail cabinet/shelf. Shake that thing.

  6. La-Quint-Dry

    La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Extra Dry - Half Bottle 375ml

    £15.00

    £15.00

    A curious, fragrant blend of the French 'vin de liquer', Pineau de Charentes, white wine and botanicals, there ain't much that's similar to La Quintinye Extra Dry.

    Alter Ego: David Byrne; totally idiosyncratic that sings pretty, dry melodies over a crunchy, firm beat. Certainly no Talking Head, this is one cocktail party staple that should always Remain in Light.

  7. La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Blanc 37.5cl

    La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Blanc - Half Bottle 375ml

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Straddling the confluence of floral and herby and dry and sweet, La Quintinye is like a romantic bridge that's perfect for strolling across at dusk.

    Alter Ego: Ray Davies; It's definitely Kinky (not like THAT... mind in the gutter, you lot) and it is just perfect for watching a Waterloo Sunset. Even when it' a touch sweet, it still retains an attractive dryness and earthy, poetic quality.

  8. La Copa Vermouth NV

    La Copa Vermouth NV

    £15.00

    £15.00

    Like something conceived in an Anne Rice novel this elegant Vermouth is a mystery that beckons to be unveiled. A concoction of Oloroso and PX sherries blended with botanicals of wormwood, clove cinnamon, nutmeg, angelica root and cinchona bark.

    Poured into cut-glass and served chilled in the heat of the colonial riverside in New Orleans or in the dead of night in a 19th-century Parisian theatre. A secret whispered in the rolling silence of a boat belly. That becomes a welcome drink offered when arriving after a dusty carriage ride after a day's journey.

  9. Vignerons de Maury 'Solera 1928' NV - 500ml

    Vignerons de Maury 'Solera 1928' NV - 500ml

    £20.00

    £20.00

    Maury is not, as many of you may believe, an American tabloid talk show, hosted by Maury Povitch but a fortified wine from the South of France. Well, technically it's both those things but one is delicious and nuanced, the other is a TV show with over 2,500 episodes all of which involve paternity tests and shouting, so there is only one that will occupy our time. Made from the Grenache grape and aged oxidatively this red fortified wine has powerful aromas of salted almonds, figs, redcurrants and is a great alternative to old tawny port. It will also, at no point demand you take a lie-detector test; the perfect peacemaker for a family dinner!
