I’ve long felt like a prophet crying in the wilderness so it’s good sometimes to be proved right rather than just be that strange man crying on the heath. In my first post for this blog I wrote:
“People will pay hundreds of pounds for a bottle of whisky from a single barrel especially if it is has an interesting story attached so why not the same for rare sherries?”
That was back on 2010. Since then there have been some quite pricey sherries but nothing to compete with the lavishly-packaged collector bait that the whisky business regularly release. Until now that is. Barbadillo have just released a sherry that costs £8000. No there isn’t an extra zero there, eight thousand pounds. Very nice it is too. You can read the whole story here.
I like to think that the management at Barbadillo read my post six years ago and were inspired.
