Jazz FM - Tio Pepe & Tapas

Bar 44

The Bar 44 Group of Tapas Bars are all slightly different with their own unique menus and ambience.

There is, however, one common theme which runs through them all….the passion and desire to bring the very best food, drink and hospitality from modern Spain to the heart of South Wales.

Owen Morgan, co-owner of Bar 44 said:
“I first discovered Tio Pepe on a holiday to Jerez 10 years ago.  I entered a bar and the first thing the bartender did was put a crisp glass down in front of me with some fried fish, that was the moment I was hooked. I think Tio Pepe’s the best Fino sherry because it’s a flag bearer and I would say, the industry standard of Finos across the board. You can put it into any situation from a snack to the start of a beautiful meal with so many different foods, it’s just so versatile and so well matched to so many things. My favourite Tio Pepe pairing is with fried fish, which just transports me back to southern Spain, but if you’re going to have meat, a corn fed Iberica ham has to be the perfect match.”
