Here at the Yorkshire Deli, we are proud to offer a drink menu that really gets to what think a good drink menu should have; variety and great choices.
You can check out our drink menu here, but these are just four choices from a personal perspective that really get the taste buds tingling with excitement.
When it comes to prosecco, you’d be hard pressed to find anybody that does not care for the drink. Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine and like Champagne has all the elegance to match the greatest of occasions but without the price tag that the French variety commands.
Skinny Prosecco is a brand that we are exclusively holding on our drink menu here at the Yorkshire Deli and in Wakefield. It has all the fine taste of a great prosecco but with up to 60% less sugar. Sparkling wines traditionally get their bubbles from the inclusion of sugars as well as carbonisation that takes place, so to get a drink that has all the rich characteristics of a prosecco with more than half less sugar is something we are proud to have on our shelves.
Durham Gin is not just another gin, it’s something that has not only a great back story; Jon Chadwick, the founder was having a great time enjoying craft spirits on the West Coast of the USA when he decided to set up a gin production unit back in his hometown of Durham. Durham runs through the craft drink with the sourcing of local flavour notes (Elderflower, Angelica, Celery Seed) right through to the logo which is a modern interpretation of the cathedral’s window.
What does it all mean though for those that just love a good old gin and tonic, or possibly one of the other ways they could take Durham Gin as according to our latest infographic? Durham Gin is a light and refreshing gin, perfect for simple combinations and great for the more complicated drinks that require the botanicals to sit in the background like, a Negroni.
We may be from Wakefield, but we are loyal to our local businesses and Leeds Gin is no different. Made since 2016 under the watchful eye of Sara Birkinshaw who makes small but beautiful yields of the drink using our county’s finest forced rhubarb all year long making it a perfectly local sourced drink.
What that leaves is a gin that is bold and crisp, bringing out some sweetness and subtle bitterness that on the finish is a mixture of the classical citrus tastes as well as the new found sweet taste with the forced rhubarb coming through at the end.
Magic Rock: High Wire
Aside from our draft beers and ciders we have some wonderful bottled and canned ales which really fit the bill for a slice of diversity in our drinks range.
For those that scoff at tinned ales and beers need no longer think back to the halcyon days of the 90s. Today craft ale has had a massive resurgence thanks to tinned cans and how they are preserved for better, fuller tastes. Magic Rock: High Wire is one of those very ales. An ode to west coast America, it’s brewing means that the flavour profile is complex and suits the name perfectly; “Mango, Lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish.”
