Bloodshot Vodka is a fusion of exotic spices, hot peppers and heady aromatics. The ideal ingredient for the perfect Bloody Mary, it is an eclectic spirit that combines intensely savoury and spicy flavours with a delicate complexity and smooth, long finish.
A fantastic addition to our new boutique Spirits Lounge, La Fée Absinthe is the brand that made the historic drink accessible again, bringing the trend back to the modern world and highlighting the rich history into the green fairy’s past! Drop by the spirits lounge for a demonstration of the best way to serve absinthe and be sure to try samples of anything from La Fée Absinthe Blanche and La Fée Absinthe Parisienne to La Fée XS Absinthe Suisse or La Fée Absinthe Française.
Excited by the growing reputation of English wines, we are hugely proud to partner with award-winning Nyetimber English Sparkling Wine, offering an outstanding selection of sparkling wines from their vineyards in West Sussex and Hampshire. A true pioneer, Nyetimber was the first producer of English Sparkling Wine to craft wines made exclusively from the three celebrated varieties found in Champagne – Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
In 1988, Nyetimber planted its first vines and today, the House is regarded as one of England’s finest wine producers. Using one hundred percent estate-grown grapes and ensuring the greatest care, attention and expertise from vine to bottles, Chief Executive Eric Heerema and winemaker Cherie Spriggs are committed to producing wines of a Grande Marque standard.
Nyetimber plays a key role in the new Discovery Zone at Vinopolis, where you can taste delicious samples of 3 of their wines: Classic Cuvee 2008, Blanc de Blancs 2003 and Rosé 2008. Nyetimber’s acclaim and high reputation serve to demonstrate the quality and dedication now being consistently produced in England – just try it and see!

Produced in England, inspired by Africa…we’re delighted to have Whitley Neill Gin on board in our snug boutique Spirits Lounge. If you like a drop of gin, be sure to have a taste of this brand, an exceptional dry gin combined with a variety of flavoursome botanicals including the fruit of Africa’s Baobab tree (The ‘Tree of Life’), its signature botanical. The mix of traditional British gin with exotic African flavours makes Whitley Neill’s Gin a truly special brand and one that is certainly worth a try.
Step into Wines of Georgia in the Discovery Zone to taste delicious samples of the many different wines that Georgia has to offer. Using a unique fermentation process, Georgian wines are fermented in jar-like vessels made of clay and lined with beeswax rather than in oak barrels, giving those who are used to wine from oak barrels a completely new tasting experience. Wine-making in this stunning country is more than just a celebration, it is a statement of identity and an attachment to the land, demonstrating a deep cultural heritage and past that cannot be missed.
