Test wines and spirits for free



Perfectly served is how premium brands such as Hennessy VS Cognac, Johnnie Walker Black, and Red Scotch Whisky, Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Fundador Double Light Brandy, as well as Carlo Rossi and Los Cardos wines are sampled for free at the Tasting Corner, a first-of-its-kind, wines-and-spirits appreciation experience, available in selected SM Markets from 18 August and 8 November.

The best way to serve most premium wines and spirits is by no means common knowledge. As premium as Hennessy VS is neat, there is a whole other dimension to discover with its perfect serve.

Johnnie Walker Black or Red neat or on the rocks may well be the most time honored way of enjoying these legendary spirts, but there is a perfect serve that offers a whole other exciting side that few know even exists.

We all know “lick, shoot and suck” is the perfect serve for Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, yes? Few can dispute that it is deliciously satisfying. However, the actual manufacturer-recommended perfect serve is quite unexpected and different. And while even wine aficionados will insist that wine is best served at room temperature, both Carlo Rossi and Los Cardos recommend something quite surprising.

The Tasting Corner will be at different SM markets: From 14 to 27 September at SM Supermarket Aura and SM Hypermarket Pasig; from 28 September to 11 October at SM Supermarket Cebu, SM Supermarket Fairview, and SM Supermarket San Lazaro; from 12 to 24 October at SM Supermarket Southmall and SM Hypermarket Clark; and from 26 October to 8 November at SM Supermarket Lanang Davao and SM Supermarket Baguio.
