Summer Tipples: Six Marvellous Pours

Looking for the perfect summer pour? From rosé to no/low alternatives, these tipples are must-stocks ahead of your next al-fresco soirée or picnic.


An elegant pour, sip on this fruity blend – spanning vine peach to pear and melon – whilst reclining in the garden. Pair with anything from seafood to sorbet and chill to 8° and 12° before serving.


Looking for a crisp and zesty white wine? You're in luck. Amie's white is made from Sauvignon Blanc and a touch of Gros Manseng, and goes exceptionally well with fried food (music to our ears!).


What would summer be without copious bottles of beautifully pale rosé? With notes of pomegranate and apricot, this rosé is proving a real summer '22 hit. Complement your chosen tipple with some Roseblood macarons from Ladurée, as part of an exclusive collection, Ladurée x Chateau D’Estoublon, until 4 September. If you're in Covent Garden, stop by for a glass at the Ladurée store, or pick up a bottle to go. 


An aromatic, alcohol-free sparkling, French Bloom's Le Blanc is a great option for those going sans alcohol. With a beautiful, delicate taste, this is one to stock in the bar for larger summertime gatherings, to ensure everyone's preferences can be catered to.


For a taste of la dolce vita, try Amaro Santoni. The liquer combines rhubarb root, iris flower, and olive leaf, and is the perfect tipple to savour pre-dinner (or indeed, post-prandial). We love its medium spiciness – can't beat something with a little kick.


The perfect pour for a day at the beach (after all, it was inspired by long, languid days on the Côte d’Azur), Mirabeau Pure Provence Rosé is always a crowd pleaser. Powdery pink in colour, and zesty in aroma (note its blend of pink grapefruit, lychee, blackcurrant buds, mandarine, and kumquat), it's a summertime no-brainer.
