NEW YORK, November 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Cherry Heering (http://cherryheering.com) , a product of Denmark, has plans to release a rare vintage for the first time in history at an exclusive auction at Sotheby’s in New York. The Peter F. Heering Company, a classic Danish brand, is one of the world’s first brands to reach a global market. Considered the original cherry liqueur and purveyor to H.M. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, it has been produced since 1818.

The rare vintage bottle can be found and bid on online at Charitybuzz.com lot # 253504 (http://www.charitybuzz.com/auctions/diffabepresent/catalog_items/253504) from now until December 6th at 12 pm EST. The bottle will also be made available to the public via a live auction at the New York branch of the international auction house, Sotheby’s, on the evening of December 6th. The exact value of the rare blend is currently unknown, but is estimated to be worth more than $100,000.

The 1890 vintage was discovered in the Heering cellars in Denmark where it had been perfectly aged since production more than 120 years ago. Only a few bottles were found, all perfectly preserved in original casks, hand packed in wooden casings, and exquisitely marked with the original Royal Arms as purveyors to The Royal Danish and Imperial Russian courts as well as his Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales.

To explore the vintage’s quality, a tasting was organized in May at The Campbell Apartment in New York with some of the industry’s top experts. The panel included Jorgen Tilander, owner of the Cherry Heering brand; Jackson Cannon, famed New England mixologist; Akiko Katayama; former Iron Chef Judge and renowned international author; and Tony Abu Ganim, a pioneer in the spirit world. The vintage rating was based on five factors including: mouth feel, stretch on the palete, degree of sweetness, post resonance, and overall balance.

“This vintage is really well kept, providing notes of chocolate and cigar – as if they really rolled everything into the whole spirit,” noted panelist Ganim. “I was eager to see how long it can be aged and still maintain a refined taste. It is deep, more rounded, more impactful – this is my favorite.”

To everyone’s delight the blend was in immaculate condition, prompting the Sotheby’s auction. All proceeds will benefit the charity organization DIFFA (http://www.diffa.org) , Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids. Fashion has been the communication platform for the Cherry Heering brand for quite some time, and this is an opportunity for them to give back.

Drink of the week: the Singapore Sling!

Supposedly, July 27th was National Scotch Day. I know it’s not the most popular holiday, but the timing was pretty good (it was a coincidence, really) for describing the Scotch tasting event last week and for featuring the Blood and Sand cocktail the week before….

Heering on Quietdrinking.com

Wow. This is one of those cocktail recipes that came in a recent issue of Imbibe magazine that looked like it would be a good one. Frustratingly, there was only one ingredient that I lacked in order to make it so I put it in the back of my head and waited until I could fill the void in the liquor cabinet. If you were to ask QDP about this he would state that he was the one who zeroed in on the Red Ant recipe. Regardless, this was one that we both wanted to try…

Red Ant
1 1/2 oz rye (Rittenhouse 100 proof)
1/2 oz kirschwasser
1/2 oz Cherry Heering
1 barspoon Mescal (Del Maguey Chichicapa)
2 dashes Xocolatl Mole bitters
Stir with cracked ice well and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with cherry.
