Which drinks match cholcolate brownies..?

Gemma Crangle has been giving her advise to food blog, ‘Love Brownies’ in a Father’s Day themed post.

Explaining how to match certain drinks with the chocolate, salted caramel and shortbread of these particular brownies, Gemma offered the following recommendations;

Wine – Banyuls Bila Haut, Chapoutier 50cl  £15.50.
She said: “This red dessert wine is the perfect match to chocolate, the darker and richer the better! A rich yet clean fortified wine made from Grenache around the French Mediterranean town of Banyuls, close to the Spanish border. Rich, ripe black fruits with cocoa notes and very fine tannins.”

Whisky – Glenfarclas Springs, Speyside £45.00.
Gemma said: “The salted caramel notes on this single malt Speyside whisky, (as a result of the sherry cask ageing), beautifully mirror the same flavours in the brownie.”

Brandy – Torres 10 year old Imperial Brandy, Spain  £21.00.
Gemma said: “The warm, toasty, vanilla notes in this smooth barrel-aged brandy perfectly enhance the shortbread and salted caramel notes in the brownie.”
