Top Seven Festive Tipples

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year are just around the corner. We’ve rounded up a selection of our favorite tipples to stock your drinks cabinet with.

2005 Taylor Fladgate Quinta De Terra Feita Port

Quinta de Terra Feita is one of the three famous Taylor Fladgate vineyards. The Terra Feita vineyards are perfectly placed on south facing slopes and have been supplying Taylor’s with grapes for nearly 100 years. Since the beginning of the 20th century, small amounts of Terra Feita wine have been bottled as single-quinta vintage Ports. A fantastic pairing with an after dinner cheese board.

Try a goat’s cheese like a fresh Valençay, or a beautiful Stilton.

Grey Goose Vodka

Vodka is a great mixing spirit to have on hand over the festive season, and you can’t go far wrong with Grey Goose.

Martini Prosecco

In the region of Prosecco, Italy, sun-cracked foothills are lined with the Glera grape. Ripened in this ideal climate, the Glera grape reaches the bottle with a delicious fragrance of apple, fruits and thyme, creating a deliciously light wine that pairs perfectly with a range of dishes. Prosecco is regularly served alongside stuzzichini – the traditional Italian canapé. Alternatively, pair with fresh local grilled fish or sushi, or simply enjoy this wine as a pre-dinner drink.

Gerard Bertrand Cote des Roses

This delicious, easy-drinking wine, is perfect for Cayman’s year-round summer climate. The Languedoc appellation stretches along the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border as far as the city of Nimes. This warm, windy climate, helps the grapes ripen perfectly, while retaining a deliciously fresh quality, thanks to the altitude and influence of the seaside locale. The wine’s bouquet releases aromas of summer fruits, cassis, and redcurrants, while floral notes of rose along with hints of grapefruit complete the picture for a deliciously fresh finish. Enjoy as an aperitif, with shellfish, or subtly spiced dishes.
