In our last episode of the series, we look at a drink that’s particularly close to Lucy’s heart – dry sherry. We look into three of the key styles of dry sherry and their unique ageing processes, with Certified Sherry Educator Karen Douglas, who is also the Director of Global Education at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).
Plus we FINALLY let producer Lou have a drink! She tries dry sherry for the first time and gives us her unique take on how to describe colours in wine…
The sherries we tried in this episode were the Fino, Amontillado and Oloroso from the Pedro’s Almacenista range, available at Majestic Wine.
Other favourite sherries of ours include Valdespino, El Maestro Sierra and Fernando di Castilla. Or for some super old and complex sherries, try Bodegas Tradicion.
