2.5.14 Obama Drinks Sherry with Emperor of Japan
President Obama is in Japan for an official state visit, and recently attended a state banquet in his honour, hosted by the Emperor Akihito at the Imperial Palace. For the starter, “Royal Consomme,” a Sandeman Medium Dry Sherry was served as its accompaniment. Sherry has long been in favour with the Japanese court - and Japan in General - having been introduced by the first Spanish ambassador in the XVI century.
