Full-bodied, pale mahogany classic which makes a great aperitif on ice. This one will split opinion, as it’s great served at room temperature in traditional sherry glasses but eye-openingly good chilled and poured over crushed ice. Your choice! An old-fashioned and very British cream – this one will certainly bring back the ghosts of Christmases past and there’s no denying the big whiff of festive spice mixed in with the sweet grapey flavours. But hang on a minute, this is the 21st century so it’s off to the fridge with this bottle. And what a difference a few degrees make. Serve in super-chilled glasses and this could well be the cocktail drink find of the season. Add a slice of orange and a sprig or two of mint and suddenly this is an eminently fashionable tipple, fit to be served at all the best parties. Great with the cheeseboard too.
