Glass of Bubbly Purple Clouds Cocktail

You may know of the famous song, ‘Purple Rain’ performed by the legendary Prince, in this feature, we’ll be making and drinking a cocktail on a slightly different purple scale, titled ‘Purple Clouds’ sweet, smooth and elegant, crafted with Welsh Vodka and Croatian Sparkling Wine.

The Sparkling Wine – Didin San

A Winery from the wonderful Sparkling Wine producing country of Croatia, with a vast and delicious history, Croatian Sparkling Wines aren’t often experienced outside of the country, they even say that the best Croatian Sparkling Wines never leave the country, well, it seems that this little gem slipped through and made its way to the Glass of Bubbly Awards, taking home a Silver Medal, produced in the Traditional Method, this Sparkling Wine is well worth a taste.

Hotel Borovnik – Didin San

Aroma – “Dried apricot and peaches, yellow fruits, yeasty and freshly baked pastries, notes of citrus, dried lemon, lemon on pancakes, and more on the palate.”

Flavour – “Fizzy yellow floral and citrus characters, with notes of peaches, apricots, yellow apples and lemon on the palate, not forgetting a faint hint of a lemon pastry.”

Vodka – In The Welsh Wind

In The Welsh Wind Distillery began with a 1047–mile walk around Wales

An adventure that lasted 3 months and allowed the founders to re-find their love and passion for life, with them both sharing the same vision, they started to produce bespoke spirits in small batches for businesses in the premium drinks industry.

The In The Welsh Wind Distillery stands strong in Tanygroes, surrounded by woodland and fields, where they grow barley for their whisky.
