We’ve been buying Port from family run Quinta de la Rosa since the 1990s. The best wines from 2016 are matured for 18 months in oak tonels before being carefully blended together. This is a great vintage, made to give pleasure now or aged to enjoy in the next few decades.
Very rich, dark chocolate aromas with black cherry and mature fruit. Pleasing freshness from floral and citrus bouquet. Powerful and filled with potential, yet elegant and generous on the palate.
The perfect accompaniment to rich dark chocolate puddings or blue cheeses such as Stilton and Roquefort. Best decanted as may throw a light sediment.

The Lakes Premium Dry Gin, 70cl, £34, find it in store, or click here to order online from our Everyday Click & Collect service
A classic English gin with vibrant notes of juniper, cracked black pepper and orange peel.
Made using a select few botanicals, gently infused with the finest British wheat spirit, distilled in a traditional copper pot still, drawing the purest water from their Lake District National Park home in a UNESCO World Heritage Site. By steeping the botanicals overnight like loose-leaf tea, they interact freely with the warm spirit to encourage the essential oils to release more slowly, protecting their delicate nature. The traditional copper pot still then runs slow and long to extract the maximum amount of flavour.

A deliciously warming blend of blackcurrants and aronia berries carefully blended with aromatic spices to create a rich and indulgent treat. Serve hot.

A natural distillate of orange, juniper, coriander, angelica root and lemon, forms the foundation of the spirit. Natural flavours and extracts of spice, orange blossom and wormwood enable a subtle aromatic depth on the nose and in taste. Best enjoyed mixed with tonic water, served with plenty of ice and a slice of orange.
