Whether it’s a few pre-Christmas socially distanced drinks with friends, a thoughtful gift, or popping the bubbly for the family on Christmas day, Circle K wants to help the nation raise a glass to more joyful times. With fantastic discounts on wine, prosecco, sprits and beer, it promises to be a very merry Christmas indeed. Circle K’s festive alcohol offers are available in stores where beers and spirits are sold nationwide*, excluding Circle K Express sites.
A Bounty of Bubbles!
We Irish love a cheeky Buck’s Fizz to kick off the big day in style, and Circle K has the juice for bubble lovers this Christmas. Fizz fans can double down on the majestic Terre Serena and Veneto Rosato Frizzante prosecco for only €20, or for €12 each. Two ideal aperitif wines that add a little sparkle to any occasion, the Terre Serena is light and frothy, packed with fruity flavours of pear, lemon and ripe apple and the Veneto Rosato Frizzante perfectly combines quaffable scents of fruit and flowers.
We’re just getting started!
While we all know the big game in town at Christmas is the turkey and ham, Circle K understands there’s often a couple of pescatarians at the table that need to be accounted for! A delicious seafood starter can be the perfect opening gambit at Christmas, and Circle K has the perfect complement, with the heavenly Whispering Angel, reduced from €25 to only €22 a bottle. This wine literally redefined the entire Rosé category and anyone familiar with its refreshing mix of citrus, peach, rose water and summer berry notes will attest to why.
For those who prefer white, there are bargains to be quaffed there too, with the delectable Bago Albarino on offer for €15 a bottle, down from €17. With intense aromas of mango, pineapple, peach and a touch of chamomile, this wine’s rich tropical character is reflected in the palate with a lingering finish.
Many wine lovers swear by sauvignon and for those seeking a delicious glass or two of the perfect blanc, Graham Norton’s award-winning Own SauviGNon Blanc, Marlborough is on offer for two bottles at €25. Made with 100% Glera grapes and boasting sweet scented floral notes and mousse like palette followed by a beautiful crisp finish, it’s a well-deserved special treat after the year that’s been.
The Main Event
There are no hard and fast rules about what colour wine is best to pair the traditional turkey dinner with, and Circle K caters to all wine drinkers’ preferences. In addition to the special discounts, there is a wide range of whites, rosés and reds on offer to suit all tastes. A fine wine and a perfectly primed turkey are a veritable marriage made in heaven, and with the sumptuous Faustino VII Rioja (red and white) priced at two for €20, reduced from €14 each, this is one festive nuptial that will see money left over for the honeymoon, and by honeymoon, we mean dessert of course!
Shaken or stirred!
Cocktail kits are an ever-popular Christmas gift, but they’re nothing without the liquid. For those who really want to get into the Christmas spirit, Circle K has the top-shelf gin favourite Hendricks 35cl on offer for only €15, representing a €7 discount. And, from Russia with love, Smirnoff vodka 70cl for only €23. Mixing things up is cheaper too, with Schweppes Tonic 1l on offer at €3 for two, or for extra freshness a 12 pack of 150ml cans for only €6.
Heart-warming cold ones
Circle K has made sure that those who favour the suds don’t get left out in the cold this Christmas, with heart-warming deals on Brewdog “Dead Pony Club” & “Punk IPA” at only €10 each for a four-pack. Customers who purchase two packs will receive a free Schooner glass, while stocks last. Other great deals include eight-packs of 500ml Bulmers, Guinness, Coors or Heineken priced at two for €24, and six-packs of bottled Heineken, Coors, Corona, Bulmers and Budweiser at €20 for two.
Rounding out a very tasty festive Circle K alcohol offering is the chillingly cool White Claw fruit flavoured hard seltzer at only €10 for four 330mml cans. New to Ireland in 2020, this brand took the country by storm establishing an entirely new alcohol category.
While Circle K has a lot of generous alcohol deals on offer in all stores excluding Circle K Express sites, it would like to remind its customers to please drink responsibly this Christmas, and always.
