Floral Prosecco Cocktail In Spring We Rise

The blossoming of the flowers, the buzz of the bees, the awakening of animals from hibernation and more sunlight during the day, this can only mark the beginning of the beautiful season of Spring Time, oh Spring Time.

One of the most associated things with Spring is the rise of a wonderful array of flowers, so when crafting this Cocktail in celebration of the season, we’ve got our hands on some delicious edible flowers from Nurtured in Norfolk to enhance the look of this Spring Cocktail.

The Prosecco – Bisol

Bisol has a history dating back to 1542. five centuries and twenty one generations have worked on creating great-tasting wines, the only time Bisol was interrupted was during World War I, the Valdobbiadene territory (where Bisol is located) stood right on the battle lines between the Austrian-Hungarian forces and their opponents, the Italians, but in 1920 they were back on track and once again pushing the boundaries and bringing people’s taste buds forward into the future.

You can find out more about Bisol here: Bisol, from 1542 to the future of Prosecco Superiore. Or find out what it’s like taking A visit to Bisol Prosecco to see if it’s something you’d like to do, spoiler alert, it will be.

The Rum – Portsmouth Distillery Co.

Crafted by Portsmouth Distillery Co, we have their exceptional 3-year-old Rum, aged in Bourbon casks, less than 100 metres from the sea in Fort Cumberland.

I reached out to a member of the team, Dich Oatley, their Sales Director, to ask him a couple of questions: What Is The Connection With Fort Cumberland And Portsmouth Distillery?

“Fort Cumberland is our home. It is all about our branding and backstory (hence the label). The main three botanicals for our Fort Gin grow within the wall of the Fort – gorse flower, elderflower and sea radish. With the naval heritage of the site and the two co-founders being ex-Navy of 24 and 26 years respectively, the link is unmistakable.

As the walls of the Fort are 6-8 foot thick and with 8-10 feet of soil on the roof, it makes it a perfect place to be ageing Rum in casks, as the temperature and humidity of the ageing rooms are constant all year round no matter what the weather.” – Dich Oatley

Portsmouth Distillery Co. – 1968 Rum – Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Ripe bananas, dried bananas, along with a fantastic display of dried fruits and hints of floral notes on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Smooth, with wild floral characters, like early springtime, with notes of blossom and a delicate fruity display of banana/tropical on the palate.”

In Spring We Rise Cocktail Tasting Notes

Aroma – “A delicate touch of floral notes combined with the white of an egg.”

Flavour – “A wholesome, delicate and smooth display, with gentle floral notes and green fruits coming from the Prosecco, the rum adds to the gentle sweetness and wild floral notes, with white floral and lavender, with the egg white giving it all a creamy texture, the combo would work with or without the egg, depending on your preference.”
