New Boozy Fruits for Christmas

Preserved fruits in alcohol are a popular Christmas treat, whether they’re being used as a quick and easy dessert or to give as a stocking filler gift for foodie friends. This year Opies has extended their acclaimed preserved fruits in alcohol adding two new varieties: Stem Ginger in Famous Grouse and Christmas Fruits in Courvoisier.

Opies Stem Ginger with Famous Grouse takes succulent, young Chinese Stem Ginger which is gently infused with the UK’s number one blended whisky – Famous Grouse. Simply adding the infused ginger delivers a luxurious and spicy finish to a variety of bakes and desserts such as Christmas pudding, mince pies, home-made cheesecake and crumbles. The spicy whisky syrup gives drinks extra oomph – especially a Whisky Mac.  Packed into an attractive 500g globe jar. RRP £6.99 available from selected Waitrose and Ocado.

Opies Christmas Fruits with Courvoisier is a generous mix of Figs, Apricots, Dates and Cranberries in delicately spiced syrup and Courvoisier Cognac. The Courvoisier perfectly complements the fruits and enhances the exceptional festive flavour. The fruits are delicious served simply as they are or with whipped cream, thick yogurt or vanilla ice cream. Use them to make a very luxurious bread and butter pudding or as part of a boozy Christmas cake. Exclusively available from Waitrose and Ocado, the 460g jar is priced at £8.99.

The two new variants complement Opies’ existing range of Peaches in Courvoisier, Black Cherries in Kirsch, Figs in Courvoisier, Apricots in Grand Marnier, Baby Pears in Amaretto and Ginger with Teachers Whisky.
