It is that time of the year where weddings and house parties take over as we celebrate the last leg of the year with friends and loved ones. After all the hard work, it is time to let your hair down, indulge a little; all in style. Here are some exotic options to help you play the perfect host

A Bottle of Bubbly with gold flakes
Auriga - India's first ever sparkling wine with gold flakes, has been launched for the season by Grover Zampa Vineyards. This new gold edition is for all those looking for some extra indulgence.

This gently aged wine with an extravagant dusting of old flakes embodies craftsmanship and finesse. With its golden straw hues, the wine has a fresh citrus and floral aroma. The palate is intense with a pleasant sensation of fruit and creaminess. The notes extend to a long and refreshing finish with hints of brioche and dried apricot.

Kapil Grover, Chairman, says, "We stand for heritage, rich culture and exceptional craftsmanship. Grover Zampa Vineyards believes in consumer experience through constant innovation, and to ring in our 25th year in the wine-making industry, we proudly present to you Auriga."

Auriga - the Golden Charioteer symbolises travel into the Altus of sparkling constellations. A splendid sojourn to the heart of premium celebrations, this wine is an ode to an exquisite experience of sharing joys of life's special moments.

A Tech enabled Cocktail Maker
Barsys, the highly specialised automated system makes around 2000 cocktails and is almost a breakthrough in the spirits segments. You no more need to hire a bartender for your home party, just get a Barsys.  

It's a fully automated cocktail maker designed to act as a tool for bar-tenders, enabling them to cater to a wide guest list. The cocktails can easily be ordered by an app on a handheld device and Barsys allows you to have the system be kept at home or office. Barsys monitors the consumption patterns, pour quantities, and can notify the user for ingredients if they are running low. The App, stores all the data in the cloud and can be used to improve inventory management and develop data backed consumer insights. The system combines robotic hardware with cloud-based software to prepare your favorite cocktail faster than a bartender.

Akshet says, "With the snazzy look of the machine and its efficiency, bars and restroclubs apart from individuals are already showing interest as they see it as a more viable option than hiring more people behind the bar."

A mobile interface based on Android and iOS platform ensures that the customers on different platforms can choose or customize their favorite cocktail. As Barsys has been designed with customization in mind, almost any kind of additive can be used to prepare your favorite cocktail. The purpose of a perfect mixed drink is very precisely achieved with the help of complex algorithms used in BARSYS, each cocktail requiring a different algorithm. The machine controls liquor/cocktail pour sizes and ensures portioned drinks and cocktails. The pour sizes can also be configured without bounds for a distinct cocktail taste through an easy UI of the app.

You no more need a bartender at your house parties! Barsys shall do the job!

A Gift Pack of Indian Pale Ale
"The Indian Pale Ale", is the new brew by the craft beer company Bira 91. The way in which it has been brewed, has many beer lovers excited and stocking up on it to serve friends "something different".

Speaking of "The IPA", Ankur Jain, Founder and CEO said "This is a sort of a homecoming for the IPA. The IPA was perhaps the only beer style made for India, by British brewers in 1800s and pretty much died down from the world after lagers took over. Their rediscovery by American craft brewers in the 1980s really sparked the craft revolution and we believe that "The IPA" brings the beer style full circle. It is a hop mutiny in a glass and we believe that the beer will spark a beer revolution in India too."

The company will be launching the beers in the United States making it the first IPA from India to hit global markets.

This beer is made with a mix of two row pilsner malts, pale malts and wheat malts. Brewed with the world's most flavorful aroma and bitter hops (cascade, magnum, brewers' gold, and some secret exotic varieties!), this is a beer with a refreshing bitterness and true to the original pale ales brewed by British brewers.
