Veuve Clicquot Smeg Retro Style Mini Fridge Gift Boxes Have Landed & We've A Lambay Whiskey Tasting On The 19th

In a year that seems to have gone quicker than any other, there is now exactly one month until Beaujolais Nouveau Day. We thought it best to be prepared as November will be manic with Christmas orders, so we are now accepting pre-orders for this year's release of Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2023.

Traditionally Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November with fireworks, music and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01am just weeks after the wine's grapes have been harvested. This tradition began when winemakers and growers of the Beaujolais region celebrated the end of harvest with the first wine of a new vintage, now parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate this popular "vin de primeur".

If you're keen to see what all the fuss is about, pre-order now, delivery or collection will be on or after the 16th of November, and stock will be limited, so no further discounts will apply.

George Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2023 - Preorder Here

Our Beaujolais Nouveau comes from the late George Duboeuf, known in France as the “King of Beaujolais”. He is credited as one of the marketing geniuses behind the wine; he spearheaded the campaign to promote it and is almost single-handedly responsible for creating the Beaujolais Nouveau craze.  Since he died in 2020, his son Franck has run the business, keeping Georges’ legacy front and centre.

This year's release has been described as a "dazzling Beaujolais Nouveau! Brilliant purple colour. A lovely roundness of red berries with a hint of English candy! Crunchy, fresh and deliciously long-lasting

Beaujolais Nouveau can also be enjoyed lightly chilled, and as it doesn't improve with age, it should be enjoyed immediately.


Veuve Clicquot Brut & Rosé NV In Smeg Solaire Yellow Rosé Pink Mini Fridge Gift Boxes Have Arrived - See Here

Our weekend got off to a great start with the earlier-than-expected arrival of Veuve Smeg Retro Style Mini Fridge Gift Boxes. We may not have had much cause to open bubbles over the weekend, but thankfully Global Champagne Day falls later this month (27th).

The fridge is plastic-free and constructed in recyclable tin, with a removable wedge made from 100% sugarcane waste so that it can be upcycled to enjoy a second life as a designer box. It also keeps a bottle cold for 2 hours!! Inside the "Solaire Yellow" fridge gift box, you will find a bottle of world-famous Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Champagne. Inside the "Rosé Pink" collectors box, you will find a bottle of the first known blended Rosé Champagne ever - Veuve Clicquot Rosé NV.
