Bread & Wine

With Oloroso


Winner of the 2009 U.S. Sherry Cocktail Competition, the Bread & Wine hits as a fantastic cocktail on many levels. It features the Sherry as a co-base spirit and draws out the elements so carefully crafted into this amazing ingredient. The inherent nuttiness, balanced, lingering bitter notes and mild fruit tones pop as they combine with the exquisitely crafted single malt. The touch of lemon brightens all of the flavors as the maple syrup becomes a perfect partner to bridge the flavors of Jerez and Speyside. A light rinse of absinthe contributes the final layer of complexity, adding an element of intrigue and eluding to amazing food flavor combinations.
