Once sherry was the drink of kings. Amongst the most coveted wines in the world, Sherry lovers would travel great distances to drink it, and pay large sums to buy it. This magical beverage from a small, sun-soaked corner of Spain captured the imagination, and was made and aged unlike any other wine on the planet. Then came the dark ages. Mass-produced, poorly-made sherry took over. What once was seen as a versatile category, incorporating the driest and sweetest wine in the world (and everything in between), became known as low-grade, cloying and cheap. Sherry became the drink of the old and the out-of-touch. But, a revolution is at hand. Wine-lovers and bartenders are battling to reclaim sherry. And we at Black Bull have long been part of the fight. These pages are a labor of love. Here we showcase the flavors and diversity of sherry in cocktails, by the glass pours, and by the bottle.
