Need a treat to beat the winter blues, or a gift to cheer someone up whilst the days are cold and short? Saporista's Winter Warmer selection will hit the spot! We've paired NINE ELMS No.18, winner of 2020's Imbibe 'No and Low Alcohol' award, with sweet almond treats from Spain. NINE ELMS No.18 is a skilful blend of berries, botanical extracts and 20 different flowers and herbs, that results in a sophisticated drink that is differently delicious. As an added bonus it's alcohol free, low calorie and contains no added sugar, so need to feel guilty when indulging yourself with the luxurious caramelised and chocolate-covered almonds.
This selection of Saporista-sourced artisan treats will arrive in a beautifully designed, UK produced gift box, made from re-cycled cardboard, perfect for keeping and re-using to store other special stuff in.
We thoroughly recommend creating Mulled Nine to warm up the occasion! Just follow the recipe below:
1 bottle Nine Elms No.18
5ml ginger cordial, or a large piece of ginger
1 whole dried chipotle, ancho or mulato chilli
1 cinnamon quill
2 whole star anise
7 whole dried allspice berries
30-60g (to taste) light brown sugar
A large orange twist
Make an incision in the chilli so that its smoky heat can mingle with the liquid.
Add all ingredients, including the chilli to a heavy bottom pot, and gently bring to a simmer for 20 minutes or so, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Remove the chilli early if you want a less intense spicy kick.
Ladle into heat proof glasses, and garnish with another orange twist.
Success! Feel free to
