Giveaway (CLOSED): Set of Five Valleys Cordials

Five Valleys Cordials

I am a huge fan of “posh” cordials as a grown up alternative to alcohol. not drinking does not mean you need to deprive yourself, and even the most luxurious cordial is usually cheaper than wine.  I especially like the range from Five Valleys, with their very interesting flavours which will pair well with many different dishes.

I have a set of 7 cordials from Five Valleys to be won – with great flavours such as Sloe & Raspberry or Cherry & Beetroot – there will be something in the range to appeal to everyone.

For a chance to win follow the instructions below.

    I see that the Cherry & Beetroot cordial can go into crumbles – yum! It would be fun experimenting with the rest.
