Drinks for him and for her

Dry January is all but over, and with Valentine’s Day falling over the holiday weekend, it’s the perfect time to raise a glass to loved ones. 

For Her: 

Champagne is synonymous with romance, but this Valentine’s Day, perhaps it’s time to consider English Sparkling Wine as a bubbly alternative. With production expected to double over the next decade, ESW is taking over as the date night tipple of choice, with Nyetimber leading the way.

Perfect for a date night at home, Nyetimber is available to purchase online in Singapore via Analogue Wine Merchants. They currently have two Rosé options to suit various budgets: 

Rosé Multi-Vintage: this beautiful sunset-pink Multi-Vintage rosé offers a unique combination of aromas, including British summer fruits and shortbread. Priced at SGD$118, the drink has a creamy, round texture. Its refreshing redcurrant, raspberry and cherry flavours give it an elegant and silky finish.

2010 Nyetimber 1086 Prestige Cuvée Rosé: 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, priced at SGD$450, mean weightier poultry and seafood pair perfectly.

For Him

Created in a single distillery, Asakura Premium is distilled from 100% local Japanese barley (mugi) and matured in oak sherry casks, which combined with traditional koji fermentation endows a distinctively smooth taste and texture unique to Asakura Premium.

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)
