Lower alcohol, low calorie, English sparkling wine producer, The Uncommon, has released two ‘remastered’ botanical wine spritzers.

Launched in multipacks (4 x 250ml cans) exclusively to Selfridges, The Uncommon’s English white and rosé wine spritzers – known as ‘Peggy’ and ‘Alfie’ – are said to represent the highest quality alternative to hard seltzers on the market.

At 5.5% abv and 83 calories per can, the spritzers are made by blending The Uncommon’s white and rosé wines with sparkling water and natural botanical extracts. The result is said to be two balanced and refreshing low-alcohol options – perfect for picnics, garden parties and festivals alike.

Alfie – English White Wine Spritzer – 5.5% ABV (RRP £17.99 per 4 x 250ml multipack, Selfridges / £4.00 per 250ml can)

The Uncommon’s dry bubbly white – made from local Bacchus and Chardonnay grapes – blended with sparkling water and botanical extracts of cucumber and elderflower.

Peggy – English Rosé Wine Spritzer – 5.5% ABV (RRP £17.99 per 4 x 250ml multipack, Selfridges / £4.00 per 250ml can)

The Uncommon’s pale bubbly rosé – 100% hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes – has been blended with sparkling water and selected botanical extracts of mint and jasmine.

Henry Connell, co-founder at The Uncommon said: “Since starting The Uncommon in 2018, we’ve been looking for ways to break new ground without compromising on quality. The new spritzer recipe has been refined and perfected to serve those occasions where you might prefer a lighter option over a full-strength wine.”

“We’ve landed on the perfect blend of botanicals that celebrate the character of our high-quality and aromatic wines, rather than masking them.”

“With England now widely regarded as one of the most exciting sparkling wine regions in the world, there’s never been a better time to enjoy locally grown and sustainably made spritzers. The very finest, all the way from just down the road.”

The Uncommon English white and rosé wine spritzers are available online here. Four 250ml multipacks are available exclusively to Selfridges London.
