Rumours are growing that Sherry, a favourite with Santa and medieval kings but for years confined to the dark corners of old peoples’ drinks cabinets, is once again on the march.

Sherry, taking its name from the Jerez region of Spain where it is made, goes hand-in-hand with Christmas in Britain. Jerezians were reportedly sending bottles over as early as the 12th Century, and it has clung to its place in the national fabric ever since.

Long before Santa Claus got his kit sponsored by Coca-Cola, he became one of sherry’s most high profile ambassadors, traditionally taking a tipple with a mince pie at each house he visited.

Another is Alexander Flemming, discoverer of penicillin, who said Sherry was the only thing he knew of that could raise human beings from the dead.

Harveys Bristol Cream 1ltr £5 at Asda which is much cheaper than the ltr I got from Tescos.
