Bristol accountants go underground

An accountancy firm, formed at around
Richard Cartwright, David Wragg, Victoria Thompson and Michael Strong of Saffery Champness (2)
the time an aristocratic lady gave Bristol's most famous sherry its name,
explored Harveys Cellars in Bristol with clients for a special sherry tasting.
Saffery Champness, which has an office
in Beaufort Road, Clifton, Bristol, entertained over 100 business leaders and
private clients and treated them to some Harveys Bristol Cream.
The accountants were formed in 1855
when Bristol Milk was popular. A lady visiting the historic cellars in Denmark
Street tried a new blend and said: "If that is Milk then this is Cream", and
one of the world's favourite aperitifs was born.
David Wragg of Saffery Champness said:
"As one of the country's oldest firms of accountants we wanted to support a
Bristol venture that was also a favourite with the aristocracy in the firm's
"The historic cellars have reopened
this year and many of our clients were keen to see them again as they have
happy memories of the former restaurant and museum. With some piano music and a
sherry tasting it was a great place to relax and chat after a busy year for
business and for our private clients."
