2021 IS GOING TO BE A SUMMER OF AL FRESCO ENJOYMENT AND ENTERTAINING, AND INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMATIC SUPPLIES SUGGESTS SOME SUNSHINE TIPPLES…
SET UP IN 1997 to offer ‘a taste of home’ to British diplomats worldwide, with their range of wines, beers and spirits, IDS launched in London a year later to supply foreign diplomats in the capital. The global headquarters of the IDS group can now be found in Dubai, also opening in Miami last year to service US embassies throughout the world. Today, IDS remains the global leader in the supply of duty-free wines, beers and liquor to the diplomatic corps worldwide.
When the sun is out, IDS suggest that nothing slips down better than the 281 pale rose from Château Minuty, a family-owned estate on the St Tropez peninsula. This taste of Provence is created using grapes selected from Grenache vines that are on average 25 years old, and the wine is nurtured by the maritime influences found in the terroir. The perfect taste of sunshine.
Responsible for kick-starting a beer revolution, Punk IPA has been subverted with new world hops to create an explosion of flavour. This light, golden classic has bursts of caramel and tropical fruit, preceding a spiky bitter finish, which will have you soon reaching for a second. It’s no wonder it’s now the no.1 craft beer in the UK.
Last but not least, IDS recommend Sea Arch Coastal Juniper blend spirit, which has all the deliciousness of gin with none of the alcohol. Inspired by the Devon coast and bursting with seaside botanicals, Sea Arch Coastal Juniper is made using traditional distillation techniques and is sugar-free, sweetener-free and calorie-free, but most importantly can be enjoyed guilt- free!
Château Minuty 281, Punk IPA and Sea Arch are all available at International Diplomatic Supplies.
