Who says Halloween treats are just for the kids? We’ve put together something far more grown-up to get you through the long night of trick or treaters looming this weekend – 10% off two devilishly good bottles, hand-selected from our range specially for the occasion.
One is a curveball Aussie red; the other a spook-tacularly smooth vodka. Both have got skulls on the label. But it’s what’s in the bottle that will really hit the spot on a dark autumn evening with sugar-hopped mini monsters prowling the neighbourhood in their droves. Stock up and settle in for the night!
What’s on offer?
S.C. Pannell ‘Dead End’ McLaren Vale Tempranillo (£22.50£20.25)
Kicking us off is a dead-good red from an Aussie winemaker who haunted some of the very best cellars of Europe before returning home to ply his trade. Stephen Pannell is definitely one to watch, bringing a distinctly European vibe to his McLaren Vale wines.
Here he’s taken Tempranillo, which grows like a demon in the region’s sandy soils, slashed the oak influence and created a gorgeously perfumed, juicy wine packed with dark cherries, coffee and just a ghostly whisper of exotic spices. One very lively Dead End!
Skull X Platinum Vodka 70CL (£33£29.70)
The best vodkas are all about purity and that’s what shines through here. The water is sourced from natural aquifers 200 feet down and the white wheat used is Slovakia’s finest. And it’s made with the most consummate skull, sorry skill – distilled five times and filtered through platinum. The result is one hell of a friendly spirit!
It has very very subtle complexity (hints of creaminess, sweetness and spice) but there’s no burn at all. Sip it neat, add tonic or mix yourself a martini… and cackle wildly at having snagged yourself such a treat for under 30 quid.
So that's your Halloween treats sorted. We're offering the 10% discount in store and online from Mon 25th to Sun 31st October 2021, so pop in or get ordering. And have a bloody great night on Sunday!
