Bubblegum Cocktail Glass of Bubbly

The flavours of bubblegum bring back fond memories of times past, of childhood adventures and it provides a sweet reminder of the joys of life, it’s not often seen in the world of spirits, but Lockdown Distillery has put their hat in the ring in crafting some unique flavours, including their Bubblegum Gin, we’ll be combining this with a bottle of Penine Simonič Sparkling Wine, perfectly smooth and fruity, a great choice for a First Date, we’re going to combine these two in Glass of Bubbly’s Bubblegum Cocktail.

The Sparkling Wine

The story of Penine Simonič begins in the late 1990s, when Ivan Simonič decided to focus on making Sparkling Wine, he became the first Sparkling Wine producer in Bela Krajina, and the first bottle of Semiška Penina was crafted in 2000.

Penine Simonič – Semiška Penina Barrique – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Smooth, almost creamy golden fruits, ripe white peaches, pear drops and pear blossom delicately touch on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Very smooth, silky, golden and white fruits, grapefruit, persimmon, and more fruits from the exotic side of the world, with notes of foliage and white floral on the palate.”
