The launch at Piste Bar London

Accolade Wines held the launch of the new Echo Falls Fruit Fusion range at Piste Bar in London on the evening of 25th November 2015. Piste bar is an alpine retreat themed basement club in Soho, it is in the same building as Archer Street bar (I say this as it took me a while to find it as it’s not obvious). The bar was the perfect setting to experience the festive, Christmas themed cocktails made using the new Fruit Fusion range.

About the New Fruit Fusion range

The new range can be enjoyed chilled or over ice, but the Winter Spice can also be enjoyed heated as a mulled wine drink. All of the wines contain natural flavours with fruit extract.

Alcohol Emporium Review: This was one of my favourite cocktails I sampled, the warmth was perfect for the winters evening and the taste was sweet yet flavoursome, the added fruit fusion wine gave it a taste somewhere between mulled wine and mulled cider in taste.

Alcohol Emporium review: Although a winter drink, this would be best placed as a summer drink, similar to a banana milkshake in taste and consistency. The ice would make it a really refreshing summer cocktail.
