NYETIMBER 1086 PRESTIGE CUVEE 2009 #Nyetimber #PerfectlyBritish

This year Nyetimber has the perfect gift for Father’s Day. The 1086 Prestige Cuvee is the first of its kind to have been created in England. Made in 2009 from grapes harvested in prime conditions, this luxurious wine has aged beautifully over the past 10 years. A wonderful gift for a special occasion! 



Silent Pool Gin is a luxury London Dry gin handcrafted in the heart of Surrey Hills in SE England, inspired by the beauty of Silent Pool lake. It is made using 24 hand-selected, unique botanicals such as rose petals, kaffir lime leaves, lavender and elderflower. We recommend mixing with Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic Water over ice, in a Copa glass, with orange zest for garnish. Silent Pool Gin is also available as a gift pack, including a beautiful Copa Glass— a perfect gift for friends and family. 

Available at Amazon, Rakuten, department stores such as Isetan, and local liquor shops.

Production of the Toyota-powered Elise, Exige (pictured) and Evora ends this year, to make space at the Norfolk factory for a new line-up of electric sports cars. Now, dealers across the country have more customers than stock, sending second-hand prices skyward.
