What were you doing this time last week? Weeping onto your woefully empty doormat? Proudly parading a posy around the office? Or simply keeping your head down till the commercial kack-cascade was over? If you’re in the wine or sweetie business you were probably counting your tooth-stainingly sweet profits.
Seeing as the consumption of confectionary and corked alcohol takes a massive surge on Valentine’s Day, what better way to cash in on the tradition than to combine the two? That’s just what Union Wine Co. Wines and QUIN Candy have done, in a joint, artisanal, all-natural sweet shop.
Their collaboration has produced delicious results, such as a grapefruity, pear-and-peachy, booze-infused Pinot Gris lollypop. And a Pinot Noir popsicle that floods your palate with cherry, blackberry and a splash of cola. Yum. And no doubt providing lots of lovely lolly all round.
