But it's not only bartenders who have been inspired by the unique
avour pro le of Pedrino. As sherry lovers know, sherry makes a natural
partner for food, which is why Pedrino is now also being championed by
top restaurants including Pollen Street Social, Bravas Tapas, Roka, Lime
Wood Hotel, the Hotel Café Royal and Fortnum Mason.
Versatile, easy to serve and with an abv of only 5.5% (that's less than
half the strength of most wines), Pedrino makes an elegant, fuss-free
aperitif whether you're throwing a party, winding down after work, or
simply enjoying a drink before lunch. And yet it's complex and unusual
enough to please the most discerning of palates.
