  • Learn to sip only one drink of whiskey: whiskey is often served in a small cup or in shot. Drink it that way; it comes quickly into the blood. This method is usual used for ship whiskeys, as it goes directly into the blood. The most expensive ones are consumed more slowly.
  • Alone and on the rocks: The whiskey alone, served without ice and not mixed with any other ingredient is preferred by people who enjoy more expensive whiskeys, because this way they can appreciate its flavor, but is also more powerful and should be served at room temperature, while the whiskey on the rocks (with ice cubes) is ideal for people who prefer their whiskey cold and slightly diluted by the melting ice in the drink. Taste the whiskey at lower temperatures may vary its flavors and aromas. Another way to enjoy a good whiskey is mix to combine flavors and give a new flavor to your drink.

French wine to become the Coke of the wine world?

France has been slipping for a while from it’s lofty seat at the top of the wine world  due to increased competition across the globe but also internal problems such as inconsistent quality standards, lack of government support, and the recent move among younger generations away from wine to beer and spirits. Yet the country’s wine reputation still stems from having some of the world’s top vineyards and producers. When you mention France many consumers continue to  conjure up images of first growth Bordeaux, rare Burgundies, and grand Champagne houses. But even this illustrious reputation is now being threatened it seems, for as The Independent recently reported, a senior French wine official has declared that French wine will become “like Coca Cola”.

Wine Coca ColaIt is a disturbing thought, but some believe it’s France’s best option to compete, saying the top and upper middle tiered producers can remain unchanged but the lower tiers will benefit from being consolidated to create more uniform wines of dependable quality that will challenge Australian and other New World wines on the cheap and cheerful shelves of your supermarket. 

Is this a win for value seeking consumers disappointed by uneven quality or a tragic loss for the beloved and very French idea of terroir
