Oddbins Fortified Wine Selection

Pick of the bunch...

  • La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Rouge - Half Bottle 375ml

    Whoosh! You hear that? That was the sound of ten thousand cherries, prunes and aniseed all splashing down into a mountain lake. That’s not actually how they make La Quintinye Red, but it might as well be. Alter Ego: Carmen Miranda; this is one fruity beauty, with enough ripe flavours to send you salsa-ing your way all the way to the cocktail cabinet/shelf. Shake that thing!
  • La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Extra Dry - Half Bottle 375ml

    A curious, fragrant blend of the French ‘vin de liquer’, Pineau de Charentes, white wine and botanicals, there ain’t much that’s similar to La Quintinye Extra Dry. Alter Ego: David Byrne; totally idiosyncratic that sings pretty, dry melodies over a crunchy, firm beat. Certainly no Talking Head, this is one cocktail party staple that should always Remain in Light.
  • La Quintinye Royal Vermouth Royal Blanc - Half Bottle 375ml

    Straddling the confluence of floral and herby and dry and sweet, La Quintinye is like a romantic bridge that’s perfect for strolling across at dusk. Alter Ego: Ray Davies; It’s definitely Kinky (not like THAT… mind in the gutter, you lot) and it is just perfect for watching a Waterloo Sunset. Even when it’s a touch sweet, it still retains an attractive dryness and earthy, poetic quality.
  • Pellegrino Marsala Superiore Garibaldi Dolce NV - Half Bottle 375ml

    Made near the ancient town of Marsala on the west coast of Sicily, this Marsala has flavours of figs, prunes and mesmeric caramel depths.
Psst, you. We can see you eyeing up the fortified wines; there’s no shame in it. Gone are the days where you find yourself tucked away in some hip underground bar drinking rubbish beer discussing your favourite 90s grunge album. Now you like nothing better than selecting a ridiculously smelly cheese from the local farmers market to go with a luscious bottle of Port. This strange new land of delicious flavours is called… adulthood. And it tastes good.

From intriguingly nutty dry Sherries to fig and honey-laden Tawny Ports and damson, blackcurrant and velvety chocolate Crusted Ports, there is a world of cheese-loving goodness waiting for you just below. In fact you could go crazy and forget the cheese – these beauties are good with everything from almonds to chocolate soufflés or nothing but a dressing gown.

You might find you need something to help tickle the old sweet tooth, in which case we have the unctuous, worryingly-tantalising Duke of Clarence Madeira, which is bursting with juicy flavours of toffee and nuttiness and would serve best being lightly drizzled over some lovely vanilla ice cream.

But just because you’re in adult and this is all very sophisticated and lovely, doesn’t mean you don’t want to experiment – how about mixing it up with Madeira Barbeito’s marmalade and cane sugar-flavoured – yet moreishly refreshing – Boal Reserva. Now turn Brahams up and pretend you’re a real adult.
