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.

    Knowing what to pair with Hunan style beef can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some pink wine, particularly a glass of Rosé. This, sweet, pink wine balances the strong and spicy Hunan style beef.

  • Pair stir-fried chicken with Kingfisher

    To elevate your stir-fried chicken experience, we recommend some Kingfisher to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this beer enhances the meals spicier counterparts.
