A favourite winter warmer, the key to a cosy winter’s night in or the signature scent of Christmastime – whichever way you look at it, mulled wine is truly a classic of the festive season. This year, in a special edition release, Letterbox Wine® – who deliver full-sized bottles of wine through an average UK letterbox – is collaborating with family-run artisanal spice company Spice Kitchen, to deliver letterbox-friendly DIY mulled wine kits.
Each kit will contain a 75cl, shatterproof bottle of either juicy Tempranillo or Italian Organic red Letterbox Wine®, alongside not one but two carefully curated spice sachets. The first, tied up in a gorgeous hessian fabric pouch, contains a mulled spice sachet bursting with all the top festive flavours, from cinnamon and bay to dried citrus peel and black peppercorns. The second tie-string sachet includes typical decorative spices of cloves, star anise and cinnamon sticks, completing the festive mulled wine concoction. With a final touch of fresh orange or clementines, recipients can create the perfect festive drink, while also transforming their kitchen into an aromatic winter wonderland.
Elly Brooker, Senior Marketing Manager at Garçon Wines, the company behind Letterbox Wine®, comments, “It’s incredibly exciting to be collaborating with Spice Kitchen on the launch of Letterbox Mulled Wine. The festive season is a special time for bringing friends and family together and cooking up fantastic creations, so we hope this gift will infuse many happy moments.”
Garçon Wines have a treat up their sleeves for loyal gifters as Letterbox Wine® is relaunching as a brand of its own right, delivering a range of wonderful wines for feel-good moments and with a fresh new look but the same seamless letterbox delivery fit for all occasions. Starting as a discussion over the kitchen table on Christmas Day in 2012, Spice Kitchen has since been voted as The Guardian’s startup of the year. Going above and beyond on sourcing only the finest ingredients, they have multiple Great Taste Awards for their products, including their marvellous mulled wine spices.
The kit is now available for pre-order via shop.garconwines.com priced at £24.99 with free delivery, and will also be on Fodabox at the end of November. Get in touch directly for corporate orders.
