Christmas cheer: 5 of the best festive digestifs

Christmas cheer: 5 of the best festive digestifs

Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary 100 Proof Edition

Sweet wines and digestifs come into their own at Christmas and there are all manner of opportunities at which to drink them. There is the classic combination of Sauternes with a foie gras starter; the unctuously, gloopily sweet Pedro Ximénez sherry with mince pies or plum pudding; the candied-orange-peel-sweet Tokaji with cheese. And how about a mid-morning Malmsey Madeira, a ruminative post-prandial port or a fine cognac or Islay whisky with your cigar? I have had some stunning icewines from Canada recently and some absurdly moreish Vendanges Tardives from Alsace. And as for digestifs, there’s no better way of coping with the festive feast than with a large glass of Mentzendorff Kümmel. There is so much to enjoy. The following, though, are my current pick of what any self-respecting host should have on board.

*Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary 100 Proof Edition *

Specially created to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee, this is a sipping whiskey of real style. Matured in “slow toasted” barrels and bottled at 100 proof, it’s rich, smooth, complex and full of toffee and candied fruit flavours.

_£150 per 100cl, harveynichols.com _
