The folks at Marks and Spencer have always been reliable when it comes to delivering the sparkly beverages at Christmas.
We all know about their Snow Globe Gins, for one, which have been a hit over the festive period for the last few years.
But what if we told you that wine lovers could now get in on the glitz and glam, too?
That’s because Marks and Spencer has just announced the arrival of a brand new gold leaf infused sparkling wine. What fun, ey?
Undoubtedly one of the fanciest tipples you can get your hands on this Christmas, the Marks and Sparkle Fizz is said to be “crisp and citrusy with notes of pear and melon”, and is a blend of grape and peach liqueur.
Just to ensure you razzle dazzle your guests over the holiday period, each bottle is filled with flakes of 22 carat gold leaf.
Costing £10 a bottle, with an ABV of 13 percent, the fizz has already proved such a hit that shoppers are said to be snapping up one every 30 seconds!
You can stock up on six bottles online for £60 in the run-up to the holidays, so you’re sufficiently prepared for even the booziest house-guests.
Plus, you can order the Marks and Sparkle as part of a gift set for £40, alongside a bottle of Prosecco and some delectable salted caramel chocolates.
If you’re more of a cocktail than a wine person, Marks and Spencer also suggest you can use your Marks and Sparkle to top up a glass of their Snow Globe Gin and make it bubbly. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more bling!
Helena Fleming, Lead Product Developer for festive fizz at M&S, said: “It’s no secret that M&S is officially the home of the best glittery drinks out there, and off the back of our super popular snow globe gins we knew we had to raise the bar with the most Instagrammable bottle of sparkly fizz.
“At just £10, our great-value Marks & Sparkle is perfect as grown-up stocking filler, a secret Santa present or just for getting the party started. If you drink one fizz this season, make sure it’s this showstopper!”
In other booze related news, did you know you could get a wine advent calendar this year? Yep, our dreams have been answered.
Available on gifting sites like Prezzybox and Getting Personal, the vino filled calendar is the perfect present for anybody who might be looking to sample a variety of wines from around the world.
And if you can ever justify a wine a day it’s when you’re counting down to Christmas, right?!
