My second drink recommendation in the run up to Christmas is Ayala Brut Majeur NV Champagne. You might not have heard of Ayala but it is now owned by the same people who make Bollinger champagne. Ayala is the “house” champagne at Middle Temple and served at their special events.
Normally priced at £28.99 from Waitrose/Ocado. However, you can pick this up as low as £20.99 a bottle when purchasing a case of 6 from drinksfactory.co.uk. Spend a little bit more to get free delivery (otherwise £5.99 in addition per delivery).
