Bewitching Cocktail Prosecco DOC Cocktail

This Cocktail may end up casting a spell on you, but you won’t be wanting a cure, we’re delving deep into the world of witches and witchcraft with Wild Moon Distillery and exploring the heard of Prosecco with Ruggeri, uniting two separate drinks from two different parts of the world can be exciting, showing the world that no matter where you come from, we can all enjoy a glass of bubbly together.

Let’s first meet our two players in this cocktail, the Prosecco and Vodka, we’ll start with the Prosecco.

The Prosecco – Ruggeri

Deeply rooted in the tradition of winemaking, the history of Ruggeri began in 1950, founded by Giustino Bisol and his cousin, whose surname, Ruggeri, they adopted as part of the brand for their company.

In the early days, Ruggeri was one of only a handful of producers around Valdobbiadene focused on sparkling wine. Giustino’s son Paolo and granddaughter Isabella have since taken the company forward with the same pioneering spirit.

Flavour – “Ripe and delicate white fruits juicy white pears, subtle peaches, green pears and apple skins, with hints of foliage and plenty of wild white floral and blossom characters on the palate.”

The Vodka – Wild Moon

Launched in 2019 by The Welsh Witch herself, Jade Garston, born in a small village in North Wales. A Beltane baby, a May Queen, a Goddess of Love. She cast her spell and created Wild Moon Distillery, which has now expanded its range of Premium Spirits with a unique Vodka. Inspired by Welsh pagan folklore, this vodka is the 6th premium spirit to be released by the distillery.

Wild Moon’s new vodka is made using distilled Welsh water from the Ffynnon Beuno Welsh mountains, tying in with Celtic paganism roots of the Welsh Witch Spirit collection.

Their process involved trickling the vodka through reiki charged crystals such as aquamarine, amethyst and moonstone crystals for energy cleansing to balance and complete the process. Each bottle is hand-corked and waxed in a distinct apothecary style that the brand is known for.

“Our new vodka is an exciting addition to our collection, it’s been in the making for some time and we’re really pleased to launch it to the public. We’re passionate about constantly creating new drinks that people love and all of our spirits have their own unique processes to make them stand out from the crowd. Being hand crafted in small batches in our North Wales distillery means we can ensure care and attention to every detail and we can remain true to our values.” – Jade Garston
