Feline Mythology Cocktail

Feline Mythology Cocktail Glass of Bubbly

Taking inspiration from the world of mythology, of fairy-like creatures that took the form of our feline friends, either to deliver a blessing or a curse, we’ve created this Feline Mythology Cocktail in hopes to appease these creatures and have them deliver to us a blessing, rather than a curse.

The Prosecco – Villa Sandi

Villa Sandi produces what seems to be an endless supply of wonderful Prosecco, without ever compromising on quality, no matter what bottle you decide to pick up, especially including their outstanding Trophy Winning Rosé Prosecco, you will always get an enjoyable experience,

“The ‘il Fresco’ range from Villa Sandi translates to ‘The Fresh’ range, which hopefully gives you an idea of the style of wine you will be enjoying.“

Located in the picturesque region of Prosecco, Villa Sandi has had a foothold in the region since 1622, thanks to their Palladian-style Villa located among the green hills of the Marca Trevigiana, the Moretti Polegato family, for several generations have dedicated their time to producing and sharing their Wines, Sparkling Wines and Proseccos around the world.

You can explore The Sparkling Wines of Villa Sandi right here on Glass of Bubbly to discover their wonderful range.

Flavour – “Smooth, delicate and very easy-going, floral characters, with white blossom and pear blossom, alongside ripe white pears, smooth, almost silky chalky texture, and more to talk about on your first date.”

The Gin – Colonsay

In August 2016, husband and wife team, Finlay and Eileen Geekie, packed up all their worldly possessions, leaving behind their home of Oxfordshire, where they’d lived for over 30 years and moved to the island of Colonsay where they now live and work building Wild Thyme Spirits.

From the deep, dark recesses of Celtic Mythology came the Cait Sith. A legendary spectral cat that roamed the Scottish Highlands & Islands, mysteriously bringing with it either a blessing or a curse, depending on whether householders left it a suitable libation or not. Not a cat as we know it, but rather a fairy-like creature that took the form of a cat.

To the Ancient Celts, cats were a message to step back and look within. A symbol of resourcefulness, flexibility, aloofness, unpredictability and, of course, great mystery.

Old Tom plays an important role in the history of gin, sitting as it does, between Dutch Genever and London Dry, it’s drier than the former but sweeter than the latter. Created to satisfy the huge demand for gin in the 18th & 19th centuries, distillers sweetened their juniper-laced sprits with liquorice or sugar, and in so doing, created a whole new category of gin.

Colonsay Gin – Cait Sith – Tasting Notes “Notes of grapefruit, pink grapefruit, orange and orange blossom draw you in closer, with backgrounds of juniper, zest and peppery notes.”
