Best Of The British Drinks


England is now home to a varied selection of beers, spirits, wines, and liqueurs, helping the country to diversify our bog-standard beverages and showcase a little more selection. As we approach the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, we thought it appropriate to share some of our favourite British  tipples to inspire your street parties and celebrations! 

Drink British Wine With Pride 

What better way to mark a celebration than drinking a sparkler? English sparkling wine has grown in both quality and quantity in recent years, giving us choice whilst keeping our options affordable.  And rest assured that you won’t have to stretch the truth when your guests ask where the bottle is from, the reputation of British wines is on the up, so you can enjoy your tipple and proudly support our British vineyards!

It’s Pimms O’Clock 

Pimm was a farmer’s son from Kent, who became the owner of an oyster bar in the City of London. Pimm offered a tonic at his bar, which was said to be an aid to digestion and was served in a special tankard, known as the “No. 1 Cup.” This name is still shown on the Pimm’s bottle today.

The brand has been a regular feature of many British celebrations over the years, so why not keep the tradition going? 

And if you are getting together with friends and family and want to impress them check out our selection of Pimm’s recipes.

Cider Times 

Did you know the UK has the highest per capita consumption of cider? Don’t be fooled, though; traditional English cider can have a high alcohol content!

With cider available in more flavours and variations than ever, there truly is something for everyone, dry or sweet, cloudy or clear! Served ice cold, cider is super refreshing, making it perfect for an early summer celebration. Shop our range of ciders.

The Nation’s Favourite 

Gin may quite possibly be the nation’s most-loved spirit. While the gin craze began with more classical flavours, there are now an exotic array of gins to explore, meaning there is something for every palate. 

From the most well-known gin producers to small-batch local distillers, discover your perfect gin!

However you’re celebrating the Jubilee weekend, do it with pride! Share your tipple with us using #ThatThreshersFeeling
