Sherry in Culture

There are many literary figures who wrote about Sherry: William Shakespeare, Benito Pérez Galdós, Alexander Fleming and Edgar Allan Poe (in his story "The Cask of Amontillado").

In the Walt Disney movie Mary Poppins, Mr. Banks enjoys a Sherry every evening alongside his pipe at precisely 6:02 p.m.

On the popular sitcom Frasier, the show's namesake character and his brother Niles are often seen drinking Sherry. This became so iconic to the series and the relationship of the two brothers that it was used as a metaphor to mark the end of the series. When Sherry ran out in the last episodes, it became clear that the way of life in the eleven year series was about to come to an end.

In the popular Japanese manga and anime series Detective Conan, the codename for one of the protagonists, Shiho Miyano or Ai Haibara, is Sherry.

Famous quotes containing the word culture:

    Everyone in our culture wants to win a prize. Perhaps that is the grand lesson we have taken with us from kindergarten in the age of perversions of Dewey-style education: everyone gets a ribbon, and praise becomes a meaningless narcotic to soothe egoistic distemper.
    Gerald Early (b. 1952)
