Betelgeuse Cocktail

While waiting to be processed, why not sit down and enjoy one of the afterlife’s Signature Cocktails? The Betelgeuse Cocktail is being served by our resident headless bartender, made with Betleguese Gin Liqueur and Annick Bubbly Rosé, it’ll help pass the millenniums.

The Sparkling Wine – Annick Bubbly Rosé

Annick Ethic Drinks produce their Italian Low Alcohol Sparkling Wine with organic grapes, no added sugar, additives or preservatives included.

The creation of Annick Bubbly Rosé was in fact the answer to an unanswered question ‘what can we order in a bar/restaurant when we don’t feel like an alcoholic drink or soda/coffee?’

The idea popped into Annick’s mind of creating a fruit-based sparkling wine, but in order to make it, she needed to find a different way of producing it.

After 3 years of research, she thanked David Volterrani from San Miniato who provided her with his facilities and know-how to develop a new method to produce a natural sparkling drink with a very low alcohol content.

Stopping the process at 1.5% alcohol content, gave her Annick Bubbly Rosé the chance to be enjoyed at any time, by anyone.

Annick Bubbly Rosé – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Dessert level of sweetness, with cherries, pink floral, pink rose petals, pink blossom, strawberry and raspberry syrup and purée on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Sweet juice, strawberry syrup, raspberry purée, strawberry tart, hints of flaky pastry to accompany on your journey, and an expression of pink floral notes on the palate.”

Although we’re enjoying this in the afterlife, it would be a great addition to any of your Christmas Cocktails, created in small batches by Wardington’s, this Gin Liqueur, named Betelgeuse, is made with real mulberries from the creator’s own garden and damsons from gardens in Herefordshire and Shropshire, then late autumn fruits are blended with their classic Ludlow Dry Gin with a collection of delicate and aromatic spices, including orange, clove, ginger, nutmeg and cassia bark.

Mulberry, Damson & Winter Spice Gin Liqueur Tasting Notes – “A wonderful expression of mulberry with a backup crew of winter fruits, blackberry, cloves, ginger, damson and nutmeg which help to complete the tasting experience.”
