Seminar taught by Marie Wright and Philip Duff at the 2019 Tales of the Cocktail festival, sponsored by Beluga Vodka. "Nosing and tasting is difficult at the best of times - are we using the right words? Nosing the right things? Plus, vodka is the most demanding spirit in the world to taste, as its subtle flavour requires a very discerning palate. It’s natural food pairing, caviar, can be difficult to get to know, as most of us sadly don’t eat enough different types of caviar - or regularly enough - to develop a palate for it! Join Philip Duff, Marie Wright and a leading caviar expert to change all that. Marie is the vice-president and Global Flavorist for ADM Nutrition, and has developed many of the foods in your kitchen, not to mention half the contents of your fragrance shelf; she'll share how aroma and flavour work both psychologically and physically. Renowned vodka lover, bar owner and spirits educator Philip Duff will take you through the history of vodka while fine-tuning your palate on a flight of Russia’s best-selling luxury vodka, Beluga Vodka, while our caviar expert will guide you through a pairing with an assortment of environmentally sustainable sturgeon caviars. You’ll leave with a new appreciation for the worlds best-selling grain spirit, a palate that can taste in HD, and mad bragging rights with your newfound caviar knowledge!."
