#### Discover our Colchester Favourites
As picked by Adam Barber, Buying Manager for Food & Wine.
The Boundary Hut Sauvignon Blanc, £9.75
“The Boundary Hut is produced in Ohau, arguably New Zealand's most exciting new sub region. This classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with vibrant citrus and tropical notes. It's fantastic for drinking alone or paired with white fish."
Sharish Blue Magic Gin, £39.50
“A bright blue Portuguese gin from the Sharish range - the magnificent colour comes from extracts of a flower known as blue pea, and when you mix the gin with tonic, it turns pink! Botanicals also include juniper, coriander, angelica root, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, lemon peel, strawberry and raspberry.”
June by G’Vine Wild Peach & Summer Fruits Gin Liqueur, £36
“A wonderfully sweet and fruity gin liqueur. Classic herbaceous juniper notes combine brilliantly with the freshness of wild peach and summer fruits, making this an excellent tipple for warm afternoons.”
