Triumphant CocktailProsecco Amarula

It’s time to take a big step, the direction you choose is yours, but do it boldly, be Triumphant in your move, and when you achieve what you set out to, craft yourself the Triumphant Cocktail to commemorate your success.

Using some of the wonderful flavours from Prosecco DOC, with a BIO label and a taste of gin from Africa.

The Prosecco – Montelvini

Montelvini has been around for more than 140 years, owned by the Serena family, the current owner, Armando Serena has been President of Montelvini since 1968, located in a small region in Montello, Italy. The Serena family has dedicated themselves to producing wine with skill and passion.

Montelvini – Prosecco DOC Organic Extra Dry

Aroma – “Delicate green characters walk up to the aroma and great you with open arms, you get a gentle Breeze of freshly cut grass, overlapped by a drop of lime, Spring has sprung with an array of floral notes including white, green yellow and some purple in the mix to pleasure the aroma. Slight notes of freshly grown Garden herbs, fresh lettuce and green pears on the aroma..

Flavour – “The palate begins the story with soft, and smooth green apple skin, green and white pear flesh, very delicate yellow and white floral dance around the taste buds, along with pear blossom and pear skin to make it magical, a slight touch of herbs, freshly picked from the garden.”

The Gin – Amarula African Gin

It all begins with the Marula fruit.

Capturing the unique spirit of Africa, Amarula Gin carefully collects by hand, then washes, destones, pulps and cools, the marula fruits, honouring them at every stage. Distilled in Africa, Amarula donates £1 per every litre sold to the Amarula Trust.

Aroma – “A sophisticated blend of juniper berries hits the aroma with a delicate touch, it’s smooth and certainly rounded, with hints of orange skin freshly starched, followed by notes of dried lemon orange blossom and their No.1 the Marula Fruit on the aroma.”

Flavour – “Smooth and a touch of elegant sweetness, it warms the back of your throat in no time, while it does it enlightens the taste buds with notes of the expected juniper berries, dried sour tasting lemons, and angelica roots, a very subtle woody taste, with an emerging light of fresh fruitiness, starting with orange blossom and orange skins finishing once again with Marula Fruits on the palate.”

Flavour – “The palate opens a new flavour profile for these two ingredients, combining together with the added freshly picked herbal ingredients, the palate displays notes of garden mint, and soaking lemon characters with the forefront turning into freshly cut grass, foilage and herbal stems a gentle Bubbly character united magnetically with the strength of the gin, creating a new almost silky smooth tasting experience.
