The A-Z of Sherry

Throughout the Month of November Wales based Ultracomida came up with a wonderful way in which to showcase the world of Sherry by creating their very own A-Z.

Shumana Palit of Ultracomida gave us an insight into how they developed the idea and the results they achieved.

"International Sherry Week was such a great idea and we were racking our brains for interesting ways to approach it.  Our first idea was to have 7 facts - so one tweet a day during ISW.  Then we thought why keep it to a week? So we extended our in-store promos (discounts, prominent display & all week long tastings) throughout November and did an A-Z of facts. 

Sherry is such a misunderstood wine, and is not an easy category of wine to explain and the colourful, comic book approach with pithy facts seemed like a fantastic way of spreading the word and the history behind this amazing drink. In the process we all learnt quite a bit too so it's been a wonderful experiment."

The quirky graphics were certainly a hit, with many social media shares throughout the month, spreading the sherry education even further afield!  So if you need to practise your alphabet you can take a look at the full A-Z below!
