As low as: £33.55Alec Waugh once said, "The first duty of wine is to be red." This is the gift to pick for anyone who shares such sentiments. (Includes packaging shown)
As low as: £40.00Laurent Perrier's Ultra Brut is a "zero dosage" champagne, meaning that no sugar is added at the end of the fermentation process. It might surprise you to learn that this is unusual, but it is. Does it mean that Ultra Brut's a zero calorie, guilt free way of consuming the world's favourite celebratory tipple. Hmm, probably not. On the other hand does it mean that it's a super dry, super crisp, superstylish, just plain super glass of fizz? It certainly does. Ultra, indeed.
As low as: £41.00In Skyfall, 'M', played expertly by Dame Judi Dench favours Courvoisier, however as Barbara in Notes on a Scandal, the Dame prefers Laphroaig. She is surely the most fitting Alter Ego to Laphroaig: legendary, award-winning, complex, full of character, deserving of a title and capable of both frighteningly powerful and sweetly delicate.
As low as: £43.50It's no coincidence that in the same way that Veuve Cliquot's label sets it apart from all other Champagne, this very distinction is emblemic of how Veuve Cliquot's style itself sets itself apart from all others. And that drinking style is very much what your extra premium buys into. Full, nearing rich (but within dry) this style will always be a constant; as good as it's always been, it's never been better.
