The Fizz Company ‘Skinny Fizz’ Review: June 2017
Company founders, Tony Stones and Teresa Barnard, a brother and sister team, had a passion for the fizzy stuff and frequently visited family producers located in Champagne. In 1999, they convinced some of the Champagne families to import their champagnes to the United Kingdom. Clearly, a gap in the market had been recognised, as the company continued to see rapid growth and by 2008 the business was booming, so much so Tony left his city IT job and turned what was originally a hobby, into a full-time career.
Since, the organisation has expanded with more employees coming on-board. In 2016 the business re-branded, as The Fizz Company, as they now offer not just high-quality champagne, but also exquisite cava, prosecco, English sparkling wine and there are exciting plans to import from other countries worldwide.
I kindly received three sensational super skinny bottles of fizz to enjoy. The prosecco contains only a teaspoon of sugar per litre (6g) and the champagne and cava have no added sugar at all, which I would certainly raise glass too – cheers! Also, their fabulous Fizz is a focused market and sourced from small, independent family producers, who care about the products that they create and additionally do not spend a hefty sum on marketing meaning you get a fantastic bottle of fizz for a fair price.
Let’s get fizzy with the, La Farra Low Sugar Prosecco produced by the Nardi family in La Farra – a vineyard in the heart of the Superior Prosecco DOC area which is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans and was recently ‘Commended’ in the International Wine Challenge. Aged in special stainless temperature controlled vats for 10 months means optimum fruity flavours of apricot, apple and peach which made this an ideal choice for my homemade elderflower, apple and peachy prosecco punch.
Bubbles are ready to flow with the, Pinot Noir Brut Nature Cava produced by brothers Josep Pinol and Josep Bonnell, at U mes u fan tres winery, in the Penedès area of Spain near Barcelona. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans and also in 2017 was awarded the silver medal at the International Wine Challenge. Scoring excellent, 91-100, from Spain’s most famous wine guide – La Guia Penin, this cava really is exceptional. The dark fruit red flavours with hints of rhubarb and custard made a lovely fizzy cava cocktail, topped off with blueberries, this makes for a lovely refreshing summer sipper.
Pop that cork and celebrate with bubbles, with the Charles Ellner Brut Integral, produced by family run, Champagne Ellner based in Epernay. With this particular fizz winning a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge. Aged for approximately 3 years this skinny fizz is light, fresh with citrusy zingy flavours and makes a great aperitif before a dinner party.
Break outside your bubble, as The Fizz Company have something to suit all tastes, go online make the click and bottles of fizziness will be winging their way to your door – cheers
