Valentine's Day is nearly upon us and here at Crafty Nectar we’re big romantics.
However, we think valentine's day gift giving has lost its originality. Forget last minute flowers, wine, chocolates, or worse – cuddly toys, instead surprise your loved one with something different, such as the gift of cider. Because no one ever got brownie points for unoriginality.
Here’s our guide for the top cider gifts for both men and women (because cider isn't just for him!)
Top cider gifts for her this valentines day
ANGIOLETTI SECCO ITALIAN SPARKLING CRAFT CIDER
Forget Prosecco! It’s time for Cider to take center stage and Angioletti Secco is just the ticket. Fine bubbles; aromas of fresh apple and white blossom are followed by intense, fresh flavours of orchard fruits, and a satisfying, clean, crisp aftertaste. She won’t want to go back to ‘boring old’ prosecco ;)
LANSCOMBE RISING 5% ABV 6 X 750ML
Another great replacement for Prosecco this valentines is Lanscombe Rising This cider is made using the ancient art of Keeving, which produces a very slow, full-flavoured fermentation. It is bottled while still young, retaining the natural sugars, to finish with a medium taste, fine natural sparkle and a nutty, caramel background. The perfect cider gift to share over dinner this valentine's day!
LIBERTY FIELDS - APPLE APERITIF
Looking for something different? Try this Apple Aperitif. The Aperitif has a full-bodied flavour reminiscent of baked apples. Despite its full taste, the Aperitif is quite low in alcohol – at 8% it’s considerably less than a glass of wine. The perfect Valentines treat!
