Well, the very kind people at Liquid Gold Drinks popped a bottle in the post to me last week, so I've finally got to try it. A lovely vibrant aquamarine blue bottle arrived, and it was promptly put in the fridge to chill. It was such a temptation seeing it in the fridge all week, but I resisted, and it was worth the wait.
Let me tell you a little bit about www.liquidgolddrinks.com first. You can buy all of their products through their website, and the prices include postage. The Prosecco is made by Vinicola Tombacco, a wine growing estate with a heritage dating back to the early 1900's. Made for a discerning palette, using traditional techniques, the brand are seeking to breathe new sparkle into a somewhat formal industry, choosing to present their drinks in colourful metallic bottles. They also make some amazing looking vodka's too.
So onto the Prosecco - the bottle looks really great, it would be a fantastic gift or ideal for a celebration - it just adds that extra touch for a special occasion. The Prosecco is a DOC - and was just right for easy drinking. It was fresh and fruity, and very light. I drank this with some nibbles, and it worked perfectly. It's not too fizzy, again, I prefer that, as some varieties can be all bubble and no substance. There were pear and apple flavours, and a dryness that reminded me of digestive biscuits - yum!
The bottle colour choices are Silver, Pink, Red, Dark Blue, Aquamarine and Gold, and cost £25 including postage for a 75cl, or £45 for 2 bottles. I'll be ordering some in for Christmas, or that special occasion of there just being a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge!
