Drink pairing tips

  • Gewürztramine and shrimp fried rice


    When considering what goes best with shrimp fried rice, we recommend a glass of Gewürztramine, it truly complements the dish as it acts as a counterpoint to the flavours of the dish.


  • Rosé with your Hunan style beef

    Rosé and Hunan style beef are a really great match. The tropical fruit flavours of the pink wine pair well with the strong and spicy flavours of the Hunan style beef.

  • The best drink pairing for stir-fried chicken

    Knowing what to pair with stir-fried chicken can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some beer, particularly a glass of Kingfisher. This, dry, beer balances the spicy stir-fried chicken.
