Creation of a collection judged Best Digestif List takes as much innovation, exploration, balance and alchemy as any award-winning wine list. Sepia has Caribbean rums, great Cognacs and Armagnacs, single malts, old tawny Ports and first-class vintage Ports, brilliant bourbons, wonderful Rutherglen fortifieds and liqueurs from the Czech Republic, Ireland and all around the world. Fancy some seriously thrilling whisky from Japan? How about Madeira going back to the early 1950s? Or push the envelope a little with less familiar categories such as grappa, marc and some exceptional eau de vie.
Dabbled with some fearsome liquid fires like Lebanese arak in your student days? Now try a good one, such as Château Musar. Want to try Fondillón? Here’s your chance. There are some especially exciting digestif sherries. Don’t miss the PX from Equipo Navazos, one of the world’s most exciting producers; Toro Albala, with their venerable old offerings; and the always impressive Romate. The digestif list at Sepia is so good, you might want to take care not to overdo it with their very fine wines. KEN GARGETT
