Blind tasting is the art of analyzing a wine using only the senses. It’s a practice that trains us to better pair wine with food, understand the nuances of terroir, and fully grasp varietal variation. It’s commonplace to blind taste all sorts of wines, but when it comes to the bar, blind tasting is less common.
Introducing BLIND, a new class series focused on blind tasting bottles for the bar. In each class, we’ll compare different bar staples, using our senses to learn their subtleties. We’ll come away with a better understanding of how to build a cocktail or create unique pairings at the table.
In this second BLIND class, we’re focusing on Quinquina. Quinquina is a unique agent on the bar. Infused with cinchona bark (the traditional source of quinine) quinquinas bring distinctive bitterness and depth to the glass. Together, we’ll discuss the historical use of cinchona and its many iterations in the bottle. We’ll then taste through various expressions of quinquina, later revealing how their respective origins shape their character.
