Celebrating The World Cup with Morrison’s
I was sitting having a tasting of Martin Miller’s Gin with two lovely PRs and the equally lovely Fiona from London Unattached and the subject of the upcoming World Cup arose. After the third G&T the girls asked me if I would like to try a some Morrison’s champagne, beers and ciders to celebrate the upcoming football festivities. I considered for about a nanosecond and a few days later a box of their best arrived. I’m not familiar with Morrison’s as there isn’t a branch near where I live so I was intrigued to try out the selection; so I invited a few friends around for the opening match.
We kicked off with a bottle of their house champagne. It was well-balanced with citrus, buttery and yeasty notes.
We moved on to the 2012 Organic cider from Hertfordshire which was delicious, full-bodied and mellow with a great taste. The 2013 Vintage cider was crisper and drier than the organic.
Perfect to celebrate the first goal from Croatia. 1-0.
A choice of four beers were our next conundrum. Which to select first? Stirling or Welbeck? In the end our first beer was an IPA from Marstons brewery which was smooth and floral a bit like the Brazilian equaliser.
The American Red Ale from the Titanic brewery blends American hops and British malt. Slightly controversial but a possible winner like the Brazilian penalty.
The Black Sheep brewery in Yorkshire provided their rich and fruity Amber Ale and a peachy Golden Ale which helped us finish off an exciting match with the third Brazilian goal.
Thanks to Lakshmi at Focus PR and the people at Morrison’s for our World Cup celebration. Try our their range-it might surprise you.
