Shaded Whisky Fizz Cocktail

24th May 2022

Whiskey and Fizz Cocktail from the Coop

A dimly-lit room putting you in a relaxed state, the warm tobacco-filled air and smooth leather chair are just some of what you could be experiencing while indulging in this Shaded Whisky Cocktail.

The word Whisky can be spelled in two different ways, Whisky without an E and Whiskey with an E. This spelling tells you what country it was produced in.

Whisky without an E lets you know that it’s from Scotland or Canada and Whiskey with an E lets you know it’s from Ireland or America.

The Austrian Sparkling Wine

The Szigeti Winery was founded in 1991 by Peter Szigeti, it is located in Gols in the Austrian state of Burgenland. Peter and his cellar master have both spent a lot of time ensuring that his Sparkling Wine meets the highest quality and captures the varietal characteristics of the grape varieties.
