When Christmas comes closer it always makes me think of the Christmas meal and entertaining. I start to check my stocks of carefully chosen wine, port, liquers and, of course, what am I going to serve each of them in.
Luckily being a silversmith I have over the years gathered a good range of decanters suitable for all the above and also a range of accessories that complement the whole process of serving, drinking and enjoying the Christmas cheer!
To start the Christmas festivities a glass of bucks fizz will be ideally served in our Pimms/Cocktail jug.
An elegant white wine will go perfectly with the light prawn and mango starter, served from the Agatha or Chateauneuf decanter.
If you have gone to the trouble of choosing a good quality red wine for your main course, most experts will tell you that it must be decanted and allowed to breathe. Our Chalice and Connoisseur decanters are both ideal for this purpose.
When it comes to port you will be spoilt for choice, our Admiral decanter is perfect, especially as we have a Christmas offer on our website at the moment – a pair of crystal port glasses free when purchasing this particular decanter.
If you really want to impress then why not go for the Hogget.
The story behind this is that because the hogget has a round curved bottom and sits in a silver base, if, as the host you keep the silver base in front of you then no guest can ‘hog’ the port as they have to return it to you when they have poured their drink!
A final glass of brandy from either the Directors or Connoisseur decanter covers all the options.
To complement these fine decanters I have designed a range of accessories, a t-bar corkscrew, a bottle opener, a bar knife, assorted engraved silver labels for each decanter, a wine taster, a wine funnel, and a drinks measure.
All decanters can be used with one of our range of coasters, and a set of 6 drinks coasters and stand complete the collection.
