We are delighted to announce the second of their additional members only tasting events which will take place over ZOOM on Tuesday the 13th April at 7:30pm.
The line-up for the evening will be a range of Sherries featuring the Bodega Lustau range whose origins date back to 1896. Led by Julie Ward, Food & Wine Customer Advisor and alcohol buyer for Ardkeen Quality Food Store, Waterford, it will take a relaxed look at Sherry, an often misunderstood drink which has been made for over 3,000 years, for the most part in the same way as it is today.
We will look at the origin and production methods of this fascinating drink and taste from the drier styles of Fino and Manzanilla, through richer Amontillado and Oloroso, to decadent Pedro Ximenez and more. With many Bodegas active in preparing casks for the Whiskey sector, the two drinks are intertwined.
Often taken with food, Sherry is hugely versatile. If you would like to pair some of the styles on the night, here is a few simple suggestions:
Fino Peurto: Almonds
Manzanilla Papirusa: Cherizo or a hard sheeps’ cheeses such as Manchego
Amontilado Los Arcos: Iberico ham or for cheese, a good cheddar or aged Comté
Oloroso Don Nuno: Aged Gruyère
Pedro Ximénez San Emilio: Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Ice cream
East India Solera: Shortbread
All samples will be approximately 40ml in size.
