| FORTNUM’S SOMMELIER |

It’s Not Just the Flowers that Need Watering This month we’re opening a bottle of Fortnum’s Brut Réserve, produced exclusively for us by the acclaimed house of Louis Roederer. The blend of the three classic grape varieties – Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay – offers roundness and complexity, with the Chardonnay providing elegance and a wonderful note of toasted brioche on the finish. Full of freshness and beautifully crisp, it is a truly exceptional Champagne for al fresco sipping. As the proud official Champagne supplier to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, we’ve dispatched a collection of these bubbles so guests can be refreshed with something as fragrant and delightful as the flowers themselves.

To ensure the best possible flavour, our Champagne Marmalade is carefully made in small copper pans by a top-secret cadre of Fortnum’s preserve geniuses. The result? A marmalade worth toasting.

While the recipe for our famous truffles is a closely-guarded secret, we can confirm that there is no small amount of tipple in these bite-sized delights, nor a halfmeasure of delicious chocolate.

Our scone-ready Strawberry & Champagne preserve is packed with sweet and juicy Cambridge Favourite strawberries, miniature Tiega strawberries and a helping of Fortnum’s Champagne.

We’re getting behind the Mayor of London’s agenda to drastically improve the quality of air we breathe across the capital. The roof of our flagship Piccadilly store was recently completely transformed when we installed beautiful moss panels across the entire surface. Aside from its magnificent appearance, it’s also a hugely effective way of filtering nasty pollutants out of our atmosphere, creating a breath of fresh air for our local Piccadilly environment and beyond.
