Today's Good IdeaFollow your nose … to the cigar specialist.
You could enter this shop blindfolded and still know exactly where you were: a specialist cigar shop. “El Puro” is a must in Luxembourg if you are interested in this extraordinary taste experience. The shop’s treasure trove is the walk-in “Humidor”, where hundreds of cigars from more than 25 different countries are stored in an optimal environment where the humidity is calibrated to exactly 75 %, giving it that delicious feel and smell of the tropics. Guiseppe Papillo explains the cigar’s history and describes the production process. Did you know that cigars produced from six rather than five leaves are particularly special? Guiseppe sells these and, by the way, he is currently Luxembourg’s only qualified cigar vendor. What else can you expect besides a really charming and competent advisor? Cigars from Cuba, Nicaragua, Domenic Republic and the Honduras (including a special House Cigar made exclusively for El Puro), and also alcoholic specialties to complement the cigars, such as Whisky, Rum, Cognac and Armagnac – with some of these being real rarities. And then there are the different cigar accessories including lighters and cutters, as well as other fashionable accessories like cufflinks.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaTrendy: Luxembourgish organic wines
Wine production in Luxembourg has a long tradition and thanks to its high quality it helped to raise the culinary image of the country. But did you know that Luxembourg has also been producing organic wines since 1995? Have you already tried them? With organic wine more in demand than ever, the number of organic producers and the area of cultivation in Luxembourg have also increased. ‘Herrenberg’, the wine growing area in Wasserbillig, is currently the largest area for organic wines in Luxembourg. This organic innovation is being made to truly historic soil as monks from Trier first used it to produce wine 800 years ago; surely they did this without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. So reintroducing the greenery of local herbs and flowers to the vineyard is literally taking it ”back to its roots“. After all excellent quality soil is needed for an outstanding wine. So what about having a taste of an organic Luxembourgish wine? You can find great selections at the following: Caves Sunnen-Hoffmann Domaine Krier-Welbes Domaine Krier-Bisenius Domaine Mathes Domaines Vinsmoselle Maison Viticole Roeder Carlo Entringer, Projekt « Canecher Wengertsbierg ». Alternatively, why not “rent a vine” in Luxembourg and produce your own personalised bottles? Have a look at this original Good Idea.Read on >
Today's Good IdeaSpice up your dish with a splash of Luxembourgish mustard…
If you put ”Moutarde de Luxembourg“, or rather ”Lëtzebuerger Moschter” (Luxembourgish mustard) on your dining table, you are adding a piece of Luxembourgish culinary tradition.
