#globalhub June: Libations from Around the World

In the movie, French Kiss, Luc explains, “Wine is like people. The wine takes all the influences in life all around it, it absorbs them and it gets its personality.”

In the movie he is showing Kate a box of dried local plants that grow in this part of France. There is lavender in the soil and once she knows what it smells like she can taste it in the wine.

Taste is specific to place. Soils has different properties and so does water; the combination of the plants, soil and water makes spirits, wines and beers taste of their origins.

When you travel or live abroad, you miss the tastes you know, but you also experience new tastes that become part of your life. This month's #globalhub discusses different drinks from around the world, and where and how you like to enjoy them.
