Spirits innovator Emporia Brands worked once again in collaboration with the Boutique Bar Show as the UK importer offered bartenders and influencers an opportunity to experience Lauvia in Manchester.
Armagnac Lauvia is produced in the heart of the Gascony region of France, from the Uni blanc, Baco blanc and Folle grapes, the three grapes best suited to the production of Armagnac.
Lauvia gave the opportunity to really understand the complexity and quality of great Armagnac with a series of interactive workshops that showed how the grape varietals, the ageing process and the art of blending come together to create a truly unique product.
Emporia’s Armagnac expert Matthew Dakers hosted the series of discovery tasting flights of a truly artisan Armagnac, Lauvia, which has resulted in a host of bars and restaurants embracing the range of expressions available.
Highlights include Leamington Wines in Leamington Spa now stocking the Reserve and Hors d’Age varietals, whilst the Oxford Wine Company are proud to stock the Reserve expression for the area.
Pollen Street Social in London are placing the Lauvia Fine onto their upcoming new menu, with Hawksmoor, 155 Bar & Kitchen, Phoenix Place and Awana also embracing within the city of London. To cap it off, both Vintage House and Hedonism Wines in London are two recommended venues to experience the Lauvia range.
With fellow Armagnac sister brand Marquis also having a re-look at Imbibe UK later in the year, Emporia Brands are shaking the Armagnac category with innovative campaigns, training programmes and influential event support.
