THE TELEGRAPH PRESENTS 'APERTIFS & DIGESTIFS'

Père Magloire joins The Telegraph on October 13th for a night of Aperitifs and Digestifs...

For the avid dinner party host of collector of dining stars, the world of wine now well charted. From poussin to poached pear, tajines to terrines, many of us now make pairings with total confidence. But what for the tipple before and after? We often learn an old favourites to kick off or cap an evening (or keep going), but there's plenty more to aperitifs and digestifs than bubbles, mixers and the old reliables revisited for special occasions.

NATIONAL VODKA DAY

NATIONAL VODKA DAY

Celebrate National Vodka Day with vodka distillers Staritsky & Levitsky. 

Staritsky & Levitsky was founded by a group of vodka enthusiasts, passionate about reviving the heritage and traditions of authentic, small batch vodka distillation in the historic birthplace of the vodka production. After years of field trips, tastings and recipe research in the geographic “vodka belt” of Europe, they found the perfect place for their venture in the city of lviv, in Ukraine, close to the Polish border and the protected carpathian mountains with their crystal clear water wells, and with access to Ukraine’s black soil, which produces unique grains for distillation.

They craft all their spirits from single grain Ukrainian wheat, which is distilled five times in traditional copper stills before being filtered twice through charcoal and twice through rhinestone. The resulting vodka rests for an extensive time to gain its delicate balance and maturity.
