It’s official: Bonfire night has gone off with a bang which means it’s now perfectly allowable to start getting into the Christmas spirit. And talking of spirits – and wines – here at the Lyme Bay Winery our award-winning range of festive drinks means when it comes to planning ahead for your Christmas shopping you are sure to find something for everyone on your present list.

For lovers of tradition

Christmas isn’t Christmas without some festive tipples, and lots of our award-winning drinks are the ideal accompaniment for Yuletide merrymaking.

A delicious blend of damson and elderberry with notes of festive spices, our Mulled Wine will keep those winter chills at bay. Just heat gently in a saucepan and serve warm (with a tot of Somerset Cider brandy). 

Our Christmas Mead is a very special festive and rich honey wine: our finest mead gently blended with Christmas spices makes the perfectly smooth and mellow festive tipple.

With a warming selection of seasonal spices to capture the rich, fruity flavour of Christmas pudding, our new Christmas Pudding Wine is a popular addition to the festive table.

For the Christmas mixologists

Lots of our award-winning drinks make excellent cocktail ingredients. Try our Christmas Sparkler: Add a tot of Blackcurrant Rum to a flute of Lyme Bay Brut Reserve Sparkling Wine.

Sloe Gin Fizz: Mix 50mls of Sloe Gin and 25mls lemon juice into a cocktail shaker or large jar. Close and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Pour into a glass and top up with sparkling water to taste. 

Cherry Brandy Fizz: Mix 50mls of Cherry Brandy and 25mls lemon juice into a cocktail shaker or large jar. Close and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Pour into a glass and top up with sparkling water to taste. 

For the inner Vikings

Our award-winning meads are fermented, blended and aged using our secret blends of honey to create the rich, floral and pungent characteristics for which they are famed. This traditional drink is becoming an increasingly popular tipple with those in the know, and a glass of our Traditional Mead goes beautifully with a game pate or a cheeseboard.

If you feel like sharing the honey love, our 50cl flagons of Traditional Mead are one of our best-selling meads of all time and make the perfect gift. And don’t forget Father Christmas – word is he like a glass of Christmas Mead with his mince pie.

For the toast makers

No party is complete without a toast, and what better way to celebrate than with a glass of English sparkling wine. Our Brut Reserve is a fruit-driven sparkling displaying refreshing lemon and green apple notes, with a vibrant and creamy mousse finish.

For after-dinner tipplers

All good gourmands know that the after-dinner digestif is one of the best ways to chase a festive feast, and we have plenty of delicious postprandial drinks to choose from.

Made in small batches, our Reserve Liqueurs are the best of the best. Packed with fresh fruit and presented in a unique bottle with a wooden stopper, they are made without compromise and make great gifts for connoisseurs of the finer things in life. 

Our luscious, award-winning Cream Liqueurs are lovingly blended to 17% Vol in small batches at the Winery. Smooth, scrumptious and deliciously irresistible, they are fast becoming after-dinner favourites with many of our customers. 

And if you really want to impress, our stunning range of four Collectors Liqueurs come in four unique, high quality 200ml bottles, each with a beautiful neck label and bow for a truly bespoke and eclectic feel. These taste as good as they look and make fantastic presents or a dramatic addition to any drinks cabinet.
