The Global Future Of Sherry in Mixed Drinks

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is no secret that sherry has been something of a dormant category, too often associated with the sickly sweet liquid our grandmothers used to drink by the bucket full. Thankfully the last couple of years has seen a resurgence in the number of sherry drinkers and sherry based cocktails with people drinking smarter and indulging in richer, lower ABV cocktails. Join us as we explore a brief history of the sherry category and taste some special and remarkable concoctions before moving on to an overview of sherry cocktails past and present. Experience the liquid's versatility and the possibilities it has to offer. This is an in-depth look and discussion about the global future of sherry in mixed drinks.
