Popping the Cherry Heering

“This was truly a historic and special day for the Peter F. Heering brand and family,” said Adéle Nilsson (left), CEO of the Xanté & Peter F. Heering Company, and official COB (Crush of the Imbiber).

She was referring to a soiree held recently at the Historic Campbell Apartment in New York City at which vintage bottles of Cherry Heering from 1890 & 1950 were unveiled and opened.

Our sources tell us the event was spectacular. The Campbell Apartment was formerly the luxurious office and salon of ’20’s mogul John W. Campbell. A real fancy-pants kinda place. Models were on hand wearing vintage dresses by Lars Wallin, one of Sweden’s foremost haute couture-designers.

The precious bottles of Cherry Heering were opened by Porterhouse New York sommelier, Robert Hamilton, and smapled by a panel that included Tony Abu-Ganim, Akiko Katayama, Jackson Cannon and Jörgen Tilander.

We hear the panel was particularly smitten with the 1890. “This vintage is really well kept, providing notes of chocolate and cigar as if they really rolled everything into the whole spirit,” noted Abu Ganim “It’s deep, more rounded, more impactful and I was eager to see how long it can be aged and still taste refined.”

Guests were served Singapore Slings to kick things off. The event wrapped with a round of Blood & Sands.

Best of all, Adéle Nilsson was there. We heart her.
