perry that is produced in Liverpool. A lot of good things have come out of Liverpool over the years. However, Lambrini isn't one of them.
I had meant to do a blind tasting of the Lambrini with Vinomaker this summer whilst Thud was visiting, but I forgot. I thought it would have been an entertaining tasting for me and Thud to share the Lambrini with someone who had never tasted it before. Then I completely forgot all about the Lambrini again - until just yesterday when I spotted it in my wine-stash (whilst looking for a particular vintage of something altogether more serious). Time for some Lambrini-larks.
Well, it wasn't much of a test for Vinomaker, as he immediately deduced that the tipple in his glass was not made from grapes. He's good. Still, I wasn't altogether disappointed in my quest for cheap entertainment at Vinomaker's expense: his face upon first tasting the perry had to be seen to be believed. He very quickly poured himself a glass of a 2015, Miner Family Viognier.
