Drake’s Tabanco Takes Tasting to another level

Since its opening two years ago the success of Drakes Tabanco continues to build, with the location getting busier and busier. Offering sherry from the barrels on site is proving to be a great hit.

There are five oxidised styles to select from, 25+ year old Antique Amontillado, Antique Oloroso, Antique Palo Cortado, an India (specially blended and made for Drakes Tabanco...the only barrel in existence) and finally the Antique PX. In addition they also sell specially bottled bottles of en Rama fino.

Following on from the Great Sherry Tasting on the evening of the 14th September Drake’s Tabanco held an extra special sherry pairing event hosted by Jan Pettersen of Fernando de Castilla - The perfect host! Tickets for the event sold out within 48 hours of offering them via email invitation to the customer database. Following the event Drake’s received a great deal of positive feedback saying how great the experience was, the food, the sherry, the venue, the atmosphere and the host!
