Nature Green Cocktail
25th September 2023
We’ve diving deep back into the wilderness, joining forces with nature to create the Nature Green Cocktail, utilising BIO Prosecco DOC from Villa Sandi and Dyfi Distillery’s Pollination Gin.
Using the wonderful creations from our own back gardens, local British companies and one of the most famous Prosecco houses, Villa Sandi, who’s dedicated to giving back to nature, a winner of the Sustainability Trophy by Slow Food.
Prosecco DOC BIO – Villa Sandi
Villa Sandi produces what seems to be like an endless supply of 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 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 see what else they offer.

Dyfi Distillery – Gin
The Cameron brothers opened Dyfi Distillery in March 2016 after two years of intensive research and experimentation, it all began in 2016 when they started distilling in very small batches using two small 100-liter stills.
Let’s meet the Cameron brothers:
Pete Cameron: is a hill farmer, forager, and beekeeper. He has lived and worked in the Dyfi region for over 30 years.
Danny Cameron: is a highly experienced wine and spirits professional, and a regular wine judge.
Blending nature, science and family, for the Cameron brothers, sustainability not only means respecting our fragile environment (which in Dyfi is additionally protected by UNESCO), but also creating some world-class gins so that their small family business contributes to their local rural economy.

Nature Green Cocktail Tasting Notes
Aroma – “Red apple skin, gentle ginger, a bouquet of wild floral, displaying strong purple floral thanks to the cornflowers in the glass, beneath the bed of petals, you’ll discover soft botanicals, green apples, pears, foliage and creamy pear blossom and sweet puréed apples on the aroma.”
Flavour – “The palate is met with lively ginger, dried cornflowers and a delicate sweetness from the apple purée initially, then the Prosecco comes flooding through with foliage, green apples and pear juices, all freshly squeezed, then a delicate sweetness from the apple purée and from the Gin helps the Prosecco with adding an array of different floral and some blossom notes, from the wildflowers to the bouquet displayed in a vase at home.”
