Fill your glass immediately! It’s ‘Dry January’! That’s right, you heard us correctly, we’re crazy about all things ‘dry’ in January. In fact, we’re popping corks and bottle tops to celebrate.
Confused? Well, we’re actually talking about dryness in alcohol, which basically means lacking in sugar. The good news about less residual sugar? Sometimes less sugar is better for the waistline – hurrah! And it’s even suggested that it might be better for the feeling the morning after (can’t make any promises on that one though). Sound like a good way to start the year? We think so! If you’re looking for some darn dry liquids that will whet your whistle this month then how about diving into some of these?

If you want to sniff out a good dry cider, this should be the one. It’s fresh and fruity but sharp enough that you won’t feel full or sickly. In fact, you can pretty much pig out on it. Find out more
Pink 47 Diamond Dry Gin
Whilst diamonds might be forever, we’d be surprised if this Diamond dry gin lasted very long. It’s an impressive 47% ABV, so you can make a mean dry martini to celebrate dry January and forget ‘Blue Monday’ with Pink 47. Find out more
Asahi Super Dry Lager
Not just dry… super dry! (We’re not sure what that means.) Either way, it’s darn delicious. And when you’ve over done the turkey and fancy a curry, this really is the only beer to drink. Seriously good stuff that will get the mouth watering. Find out more
Taylor’s Chip Dry Port
Not just for passing around at Christmas! This port made from dry white wines is far trendier and far more refreshing. In fact, why not try it topped with tonic and garnished with a little mint or even a sprig of rosemary if you have some spare. Fancy! Find out more

Cave de Beblenheim Grafenreben Riesling
