Our favourite Christmas treats.

Wednesday, 16 December 2015

Everyone loves some special Christmas treats this time of years. Here is a quick round up of my personal favourites this year.

Tanqueray London Dry Gin


Is there anything quite as refreshing as an elegant glass of Tanqueray London Dry with cold refreshing tonic water and a slice of lemon? I for one can't wait to break open mine at the Weekend.

With it's extra smooth taste, it has an elegance that sets it apart and a flavour that shines in sophisticated cocktails and vibrant gin and tonics. 


Made with the finest botanicals including refreshing juniper, peppery coriander, aromatic angelica and sweet liquorice, its smooth yet bold flavour means it has become one of the world’s most awarded gins.

Tanqueray London Dry Gin is beautifully presented in a striking and iconic green bottle inspired by the traditional three-piece cocktail shaker.

Applewood Cheese bake and nibbles.



We love Applewoods smoked cheese so I was very excited to try out these new additions to the Family.

Applewood nibbles are little cubes of the smoked cheese we all know and love - perfect for a calcium filled snack.

Applewood bake is a pre-prepared cheese bake. All you need to do is pop it into the oven or microwave then sit back and dip your favourite bread into the delicious baked cheese - heaven!
