Party in Style with Hendrick's Gin & Vinturi Red Wine Aerator!

Today is my fella's birthday and last night I threw him a surprise party with the help of the neighbours.

I took him out for dinner while our lovely friends and neighbours let friends into our place. I had left my keys and provisions so that our guests could enjoy themselves until our arrival.

We entered into a place filled with decorations, cards and rooms full of people.

We couldn't have done it without our good friends. And a few other things really made the night:

**Hendrick's Gin**

This is possibly the best gin you'll ever have. Fragrant, flowery with a hint of fresh greens, it is almost refreshing.

Handcrafted in incredibly small batches in Scotland, with an infusion of rose petal and cucumber, Hendrick's Gin is sophisticated as well as incredibly flavourful.

It truly is one-of-a-kind.

And isn't that exactly what you've been searching for?

And because it's so tasty, you'll be tempted to just drink it on its own, something I wouldn't do with other gins, I assure you.

But do mix it up. You won't believe the wonderful and different flavour profiles that release themselves throughout the night - one minute it's woodsy, the next, floral.

A Gin & Tonic with Hendrick's takes on a whole new light. A Negroni or Martini is simply divine when you've got the gin of all gin's at the ready.

In other words, this ain't no regular alcohol.

This right here, is extraordinary.

**Vinturi Red Wine Aerator**

After our arrival, the drinks really started to flow. That's when I pulled out the Vinturi Red Wine Aerator.

First of all, you should know that it is beautiful to look at. It has a plastic arm that looks like a crystal award (I called it Scott's Emmy for the night, as he's a TV writer). It has been carefully designed and engineered:

Bernoulli's Principle states that as the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases. This is dictated by the law of conservation of energy.

When wine is poured in the Vinturi, its "internal design creates an increase in the wine's velocity and a decrease in its pressure. This pressure difference creates a vacuum that draws in air which is mixed with wine for perfect aeration."

And I think most of us have learned that opening a bottle early and allowing it to breathe, makes for a way better glass of wine. That's why most of us have decanters. But it's a hassle to have to wait for it to open up and release its aromas and flavours.

That's what I love about the Vinturi - you pour the wine into your glass through the Vinturi (with no drips, I might add!) and you get a glass of wine that tastes like it's been decanted for hours - but it only took a few seconds!

To illustrate the difference, I poured a glass straight from the bottle and one through the Vinturi. Then I took both around to our guests so that they could at least smell the difference.

And oh, what a difference!

The perfectly aerated glass had a beautiful bouquet, enhanced flavours and an incredibly smooth finish.

Once you've used the Vinturi Red Wine Aerator , you'll see that you can never have a glass just out of the bottle again. The is like having a sommelier at the ready whenever you need it.

And not only is it now a mainstay in our house, I'm adding it to my permanent gift list.

After all, isn't a delicious bottle of wine just about the nicest gift you can give?
