Probably quite nice, especially at the price, but a real Kir Royale contains champagne and cassis.

Feel free to look it up pal, a Kir royal is bubbly with crème de cassis liqueur (20% alcohol) not a fruit juice. If you use white wine non bubbly it's called a Kir. That does not make him a snob to point out that this is not what it may appear to be. I am sure it is very nice but without the high alcohol content of the black currant liqueur it's just a blackcurrant buckfizz. I think it is fair for him/her to say that the name of the product is a bit misleading as any other item would be if you discover it is not what it appears to be.

this is SO NICE!

I will be sure to take up the ingredients with M&S next time they come round for a cup of tea.

Great attitude pal. Why the chip on your shoulder? Just pointing out it's not what the label says... Like if someone said here you go have a real traditional steak pie but you discover it is a mince pie... It's not the same thing? Does not mean it's bad, it just not the same thing.

I agree with what you're saying in regards to the attitude but I see the op's point of view in that they have posted "kir royal" as it IS what the label says.. It would be misleading to say kir as that's not m&s are advertising regardless of the ingredients..
Just saying.

Not having a go at OP for his post. Good deal, half price! Gonna get hot, cheap booze, OP did nothing wrong, the issue is the name M&S marketing department chose, that is misleading. Someone points out that this is not what the label claims to be then it is a fair warning no need for OP to attack a fair warning on content of what's for offer here.

You can make your own kir royal equivalent to this for about £5 for 3 bottles

The Clementine & Cranberry 'Bucks Fizz' is also on offer at £3. Had a bottle at the weekend and thought it very nice. Haven't tried the Kir Royale version
Heat, OP!

Calling it Kir Royal is probably how M&S get away with it, asI was describing Kir Royale - not that I agree with M&S’ marketing tactics.
I only get to (occasionally) drink Kir (with Prosecco/other cheaper bubbly) anyway, as SWMBO thinks Kir Royale is a waste of champagne!

I got this last year and it's lovely. World out to £3 a bottle you can't go wrong
