Vagabond hosts Sherry ‘Tap Takeover’

29 March, 2016

Vagabond Wines is hosting a Sherry Tap Takeover throughout April to help spread the trade’s love of the Andalucian drink to consumers.

From April each branch will feature six different Sherries in a dedicated section on its wine dispensing machines.

Stephen Finch, Vagabond’s managing director, said: “Everyone in the trade already loves Sherry, we think it’s time to bring that love to everyone else.”

In addition, Vagabond has created its own Sherry-based cocktail called The Kiko. The drink, named in honor of the Atletico Madrid centre-forward who was born in the town of Jerez, is a chilled combination of Gonzalez Byass Leonor Palo Cortado with orange peel and lemon juice, garnished with blueberry.

The cocktail , which is offered at £5 a glass, is described as being “a refreshing and tangy taste of southern Spain that shows Sherry is so much more than an aperitif”.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
