Sherry Christmas Everyone: Harveys Toast 220 Year Anniversary

image001
This Christmas, Britain’s favourite sherry turns 220 years young. Century-on-century generations have been enjoying a classic glass of Harveys. This year – the icing on the cake – Harveys was awarded Best Wine in the World by International Wine Challenge, the first Spanish wine ever to receive this award.

With a proven global iconic status, it’s no surprise then that bartenders have embraced sherry too. Some of the best mixologists in the country love sherry for its taste profile and versatility in cocktails. Their modern take on classic ways to enjoy sherry has contributed to a rise in new sherry drinkers, particularly in the capital.

Still, Christmas isn’t Christmas without Harveys Bristol Cream, a unique wine that has cemented its place as the most iconic festive drink in British households since its creation in 1882. Crafted from a delicate blend of wines from Jerez, it’s not only known for its nostalgia but for its golden deep amber colour, hint of festive spice and sweet raisin flavours. And with these delicious, easy serves, you’ll wonder how your drinks cart has missed this essential oldie but goodie for so long:
