Fernando de Castilla Solera Gran Reserva Brandy is a wonderfully warm and complex drink with lovely fruit character, orange and vanilla oak notes. It is pot distilled and then aged in barrels which had previously contained Oloroso and Amontillado Sherry for 12 years before being transferred to Limousin casks where it spends a further 3 years. The ageing process is done using the traditional system of soleras and criaderas. Lovely with chocolate and cigars.

Bodegas Fernando de Castilla, founded in 1972, is a relatively young Bodegas which was created by Fernando Andrada-Vanderwilde. Fernando took over some old sherry and brandy soleras from a couple of local bodegas with the intention of producing the finest Brandy in Spain. He named the Bodegas after King Fernando de Castilla “The Saint” who conquered much of Andalusia in the 13th Century. In 1999 Jan Pettersen, a Norwegian with 15 years’ experience at Osborne, bought the company and continues to produce some of Spain’s finest Brandy alongside high quality, complex Sherries. They are widely regarded as one of Sherries best independent producers.
