This semi-dry Vermouth is hand-crafted from a carefully selected blend of 40 herbs, spices and citrus peels each adding depth, complexity and interest to this delicious drink.
Semi-dry in style, it’s ideally suited to drinking on its own paired with strong cheeses, nuts or cured meats; or as a partner in many cocktails.
The 2017 vintage has produced a delightfully fresh, well-balanced and smooth Bacchus. Calmer yet more complex on the nose than many vintages, our 2017 wine leads with herbal, tomato leaf and basil notes complimented by delightful tropical tones of papaya, mango and pineapple…with elderflower taking a less pronounced but vital supporting role. We delight in the way our Bacchus exposes so many new faces to us every year. As always, the palate is super-clean, refreshing and balanced….always leaving you wanting another sip!
100% Pinot Noir
The beautiful rose gold colour of our Blanc de Noirs comes from the gentle whole bunch pressing of Pinot Noir grapes (hence, “white of blacks”). Coupled with extended on-lees ageing this has created a rich, complex and full sparkling wine with mature autolytic character and hints of red fruit notes.
This refreshingly classic Pilsner lager is brewed using a combination of traditional German hops including Saaz and Tettnanger, producing a mild, fresh, citrus aroma and an elegant bitterness.
Home of the original Sussex producers of vodka, gin, vermouth & spirits, Lurgashall Winery is nestled within the foothills of Blackdown Hills, surrounded by the beautiful South Downs National Park.

Reminiscent of a vintage port, this popular liqueur has a very fruity aroma and medium sweet, intensely fruity taste with balanced acidity.

A chardonnay-dominant blend, underpinned by the red fruit characters of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier
Fragrant, floral notes of elderflower, orange blossom and a hint of spice on the nose lead enticingly to zesty notes of mandarin, pink grapefruit and pear on the palate, creating a juicy, lingering finish.
The toasty notes and richness of this wine make it perfect to match with food including smoked fish, chicken and game dishes.
The perfect Aperitif, this zesty pure Seyval Blanc is all about citrus and freshness. Green apple, pear and grapefruit flash across the palette creating the perfect wine for greeting the guests and getting the party started.
Arise is a 4.4% Session IPA - Straw gold in colour, a balanced malt bill gives a great mouth feel and a finish that keeps on giving. Restrained bitterness followed by massive peach, pine & resinous hop flavours to keep you satisfied. A session IPA that's perfect for end of the day (or the start).
A Rich blend of malts provides a luscious deep red colour.
A second fermentation in oak barrels
The Blanc de Blancs 2011 comes from the oldest vines in the vineyard. It has aromas of toffee, brioche and mandarin. The flavour is creamy with almond and a hint of lemon zest. Only 2500 bottles of the Blanc de Blancs 2011 have been produced.
In colour, the crystal clear gold colour tends almost to the green. Its fresh attractive nose is generous, with a lemon character and note of passion fruit. A lovely minerality in the mouth indicates a good, balanced structure, with an intense backbone and very long finish with some white pepper notes.
