As the crisp cosiness of Autumn sets in after Summer, the darker evenings have us reaching for warming gin cocktails and comforting wines.
To celebrate the wonderful fruits of the season, our testers have tried out some of the finest craft gins and welcoming wines to encapsulate the best of the season.
Here’s a roundup of our faves.


Wolf Blass House Of Dragon Wine, £14




BO’s House of the Dragon is the hotly anticipated prequel to one of the most-watched TV series in history – Game of Thrones. To gear up for this exciting launch of Treasury Wine Estates’ award-winning premium wine brand, Wolf Blass, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products have partnered to launch a limited-edition wine which will be available in August, timed to the launch of House of the Dragon.
The Wolf Blass Fire & Blood Cabernet Shiraz is a deliciously fiery, classic Australian red blend to be enjoyed through every exciting moment of the new series. Launching in three distinct, fire breathing, limited-edition labels, the Wolf Blass Fire & Blood Cabernet Shiraz features the franchise’s most feared protagonists – The Dragons.
A cabernet sauvignon and shiraz blend, with aromas of dark fruits, blackberry and ripe plums, this well-balanced wine is voluptuous but fruity.




Brockman’s Intensely Smooth Premium Gin, £34



As well as loving the decidedly dark and vampy packaging of this premium spirit, this ‘Properly Improper Gin’ is unlike any you’ve tasted before.
