IDEAL GIFT OR CELEBRATION FIZZ
In June 2022 after lots of restoration, The Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company re-opened the doors to a 16th century coastal pub and restaurant - The Old Point House in Angle.
The pub is full of character and has many stories to tell and one story caught our imagination:
In 1917 Joseph Watkins, a local fisherman and Trapper, who became a leading Seaman in WW1, called into The Old Point House for a farewell pint, following shore leave to his home village, Angle. He placed an Irish penny on top of the old fireplace and told the locals and landlord, “If I don’t come back, keep that penny there as a reminder of me”. In October of 1918, Joseph was aboard HMS Champagne, when she was sunk by a German submarine. According to newspaper accounts, he bravely continued manning the ship’s gun, after the order to abandon ship had been given, firing at the submarine until the very end. The Irish penny was fixed to the front of the Old Fireplace in his memory.
Sure enough the penny is there!
In honour of his memory and to all those who lost their lives during war and at sea, we have worked with our colleagues at Vinotopia to bring you HMS CHAMPAGNE! our very own Point House fizz.
Since opening we have had a lovely visit from Josephs grandson, who shared pictures and stories with us.
WHY NOT GIVE AS A GIFT OR TREAT YOURSELF TO SOME FESTIVE FIZZ
Can be sent with a mermaid gift message. Please pop your message in the customer note field.
HMS CHAMPAGNE is a crisp, well balanced champagne with citrus hints on the nose overlaid with touches of brioche. The palate is fresh, clean and lively with a creamy mousse and long finish.
It is a blend of structure and vivacity, beautiful aromatic complexity, dense and distinguished, with very good persistence. Bright yellow, aromatically intense with mineral notes, yellow fruit and brioche, the palate is dry, firm and zesty, with attractive creaminess and length.
The sale of alcohol is strictly for persons over 18 years of age.
