The magic of the holidays is in full swing. Streets are bustling, lights are twinkling and all is merry and bright. It’s the season of sparkle, extravagance and indulgence, but most of all, it’s a time to come together and celebrate one another. For many, this holiday will be the first, in some time, that we’ve been able to reunite with friends and family from near and far. A lot has changed over the past two years, but the one thing that remains, no matter what holiday or traditions you may celebrate, is the joy of celebrating together.
Perfect for a cozy night in watching your favourite holiday movie, Miracle on Chill Street cranberry mulled wine-cider blend is a smooth blend of full-bodied Villard Noir and Chill Street’s classic cider base. With notes of cranberry, cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves, this mulled wine-cider blend can warm even the Grinch’s cold heart.
Bailey’s Vanilla Cinnamon Cream Liqueur is made for a winter wonderland. Imagine flavours of melting vanilla ice cream with a cinnamon swirl bun fresh from the bakery. Bailey’s Vanilla Cinnamon Cream Liqueur is smooth, rich and suitable for savouring solo or added to a specialty coffee. The ultimate self-indulgence, this decadent treat makes for a perfect stocking stuffer to enjoy on Christmas morning or in a creamy holiday cocktail by the fire.
Perfectly on-trend and in the glass, a bottle of red is a fantastic gift for any party host. Groth Cabernet Sauvignon is open and plush in feel, with a pretty, savoury frame surrounding gently mulled plum and blackberry notes. Light tobacco and warm stone details chime on the finish, making this robust red a definite holiday party pleaser.
Amongst twinkling lights, nothing sparkles quite like Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial Champagne. Pale straw in colour with a fine mousse; defined aromas of roasted nuts, rye bread toast and grapefruit, makes it the quintessential sparkling accessory to any holiday toast.
Bring a touch of magic to the party with a true conversation piece. Hennessy X.O is deep and powerful, the eaux-de-vie of this Hennessy X.O cognac is aged in young barrels and marked out by their power and energy, but also by their capacity to achieve a great roundness through time. At once rich and robust, it constantly reveals layers of flavours with distinctive persistence on the palate. Fragrant with orange rind, butterscotch, dried fruit and hints of vanilla and plums, we can’t help but be transported to a magical holiday fairy tale.
A special gift for any whisky collector, Johnnie Walker Blue is an authentic re-creation of an original, 19th-century blend that includes some 60-year-old malt whisky, and was sold only to their most valued customers at the time. Each bottle has its own serial number and comes in a silk-lined box – no wrapping required.
A local gem perfect for the wine lover on your list – Benjamin Bridge 2011 Blanc de Noirs (Underwater Quest). A very rare find!
Inspired by tales of the near-miraculous preservation of ancient Champagne bottles found lying dormant for up to 200 years in various Baltic Sea shipwrecks, Benjamin Bridge launched this precarious project aimed at understanding the potential benefits of ageing wine in a dark and cold seabed. Having navigated many uncertainties, this risk-taking adventure turned into a technical success, thanks to the dedication of mission captain, assistant winemaker Alexandre Morozov, and friends at La Maison Beau Soleil, the famous New Brunswick oyster farm.
So, whether you’re celebrating the holidays with family, friends or loved ones, we raise a glass and toast to you and yours. Wishing you a sparkling holiday season and cheers to a fabulous and healthy 2022!
