Ever since we’ve been working from home, a Nespresso coffee in the mornings has been such a convenient and necessary staple of everyday life. Picking out my flavour of the day and taking those few minutes to make myself an iced latte has become a ritual I look forward to. This festive season, Nespresso has released a limited-edition collection of three new flavours inspired by the forests. There is Forest Black, which is a spicy espresso with woody notes, as well as two flavoured coffees that I’ve been especially enjoying. The Forest Fruit Flavour presents juicy berry aromas that linger on the palate after each sip, while the Forest Almond Flavour is nutty with hints of vanilla – pairing particularly well with oat and nut milks. Packaged in specially designed sleeves in collaboration with Colombian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz, this festive collection is great for gifting to a fellow coffee lover.

Founded in 1925, the family-run champagne house is known for its terroir-driven expressions celebrating the charm and diversity of Épernay in France.

We’re also pretty taken by the Champagne Lombard Brut Nature Grand Cru Millésime 2008, which marries Chardonnay Grand Cru and Pinot Noir sourced from Ambonnay for complex vintage with sublime sharpness and honeysuckle notes The 2008 vintage stands alongside great vintages crafted for bottle aging.

The Balvenie Twenty-Five

Marrying liquid from European and American casks, this is a whisky that first opens with runny honey, hints of spice and a rich oakiness on the nose then reveals extraordinary depth. Bold vanilla and layers of toasted marshmallows come through on the palate alongside autumn fruits. The liquid goes down silky-smooth and finishes with a long-lasting sweetness. The Balvenie Twenty-Five is available to purchase from The Distillers Library. Interested parties can contact James Ting at [email protected]

Featuring a blend of more than 100 eaux- de-vie from the finest terroirs in the Cognac region, this VSOP highlights the woody quality typical of old eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois terroir. On the nose, the cognac introduces fruity notes of pear and prune, vanilla, as well as myrrh, cedar and fine-grained oak. On the palate, it yields caramel, dried fruit and bitter chocolate before giving way to a round wood and spice finish. Enjoy the Martell Noblige neat, on ice or in your favourite cocktails.
