Brandy from Jerez is a national favourite and anyone visiting Spain is bound to come across it. Here the Sherry bodegas mature the lions share of it which makes sense, as they already own the barrels to do it. Ageing usually takes place in 500 litre American oak casks, previously having contained any type of Sherry wine for at least three years.

In 1874, Fundador was one of the very first brands to be marketed as "Brandy de Jerez". Today it's made by Pedro Domecq at the oldest bodega in Jerez, dating back to the 1730s. One of the region's most beautiful wineries, the bodega is also known as “La Mezquita”, (the Mosque), a title earned for its gorgeous whitewashed walls and Moorish arches. It remains one of the oldest commercial establishments in the region and a destination for wine tourists, as its cellars are so atmospheric and the wines and spirits of high quality.

The brandy styles tend to be less fine and broader on the palate than Cognac, for example, with an emphasis on dried fruits and notes derived from the various sherry casks they mature in. Fundador's 'Supremo Sherry Cask Collection' is the perfect showcase. Comprised of three unique expressions aged in 12, 15 and 18-year-old sherry casks, the latter was awarded 'World's Best Brandy' in 2019 at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC). The 'Solera 12' won't be far behind. Matured in sweet (Pedro Ximenez) sherry casks and superbly packaged in a heavyweight decanter-style bottle, it's designed to impress from the inside out. Expect decadent dried fruit flavours wrapped up in a soft, velvety texture with a warming spirit finish. 40% Alc./Vol.
