Special edition of our own-label sparkling wine to celebrate our 10-Year Anniversary (2009-2019). Exclusively handcrafted for Hay Wines by the Padroggi family in Oltrepo Pavese, Northern Italy. Made 100% from organic old vine Pinot Noir grapes, and aged 36 months on the lees. After disgorgment, the wine is bottled without addition of dosage liqueur (Pas Dosé style), and it contains 0 grams of sugars per litre. This sparkling wine shows a complex and elegant nose dominated by enticing notes of dried fruit, bread crust and toasted almond. Good structure, with a beautiful creamy texture intensified by fine lingering bubbles. Dry finish with remarkable length. Spicy notes of white pepper are combined with rich fruitiness of ripe pear. The perfect celebration wine. This wine is named in honour of the foundation of St Katherine’s Hospital, one of Ledbury’s oldest buildings, in 1231 by bishop Hugh Foliot.
From the slopes of Mount Ventoux also known as the "giant of Provence" and a famous climb in the Tour de France. A nice dark ruby colour. The nose shows ripened cherry, black berries jam, spicy and leather notes. A round, fruity and ample mouth. Stewed fruit linked with liquorice and grilled aromas together with a slight minerality. A perfect match to good cheeses but you can also enjoy it with a wide variety of dishes (hot or cold starters, charcuterie, cooked vegetables, quiches, pizza, ...).
Displays a complex, characteristic fragrance with a pleasant, ripe fruit aroma of prunes and blackcurrant. Full-bodied and well-balanced with a soft mouthfeel. Teroldego takes its name from its traditional method of cultivation, trained on a system of “tirelle” or wire harnesses, an explanation that's more likely, if less pretty, than its legendary association with German dialect for gold of the Tirol. It has recently been discovered to be a full sibling of the Dureza variety from France, which is one of the parents of Syrah.
Wonderful open fruit with generous deep soft flavours. Deep rich & fruity with lovely soft spice. A really well made wine that is suitable for all occasions.
From old vines. Golden yellow in colour, with a mineral and salty nose. Very long and deep finish. Superb when paired with white meat.

Brockmans is Like No Other gin. It stands proudly alone from the many other types of gin due to the unique recipe of exquisite botanicals and the patient steeping distillation process.

The more traditional notes of gin are combined with a refreshing influence of citrus and aromatic wild berry. This creates an intensely smooth gin with a beautifully crafted taste that is sensual and daringly different.

This beautiful Rhubarb Gin is part of our own range of Gin liqueurs. Compounded the old fashioned way - the way you probably make Sloe Gin at home - by steeping diced rhubarb in London Dry Gin.

Available in 35cl bottle and 70cl bottle

This Grain Whisky is distilled in a "Coffey still", which is a very traditional and rare patent still Nikka imported from Scotland in 1963. The Coffey still produces a complex whisky with a mellow and sweet taste originating from the grain itself. Please enjoy the uniqueness of this whisky which Nikka offers to the connoisseurs.
This naturally sweet Raspberry Gin is part of our own range of Gin liqueurs. As with all our fruit Gins, this is made in the same way as Sloe Gin.
