Sandeman Jerez

Andalucia, andalucia Spain

Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a young Scot from Perth. Specialising in wines from Porto and Jerez, Sandeman was the first company to brand its name on a cask with a hot iron in 1805 and was one of the first to label and advertise its wines. The ‘Sandeman Don’ is one of the most iconic images of the world of wine, painted in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by university students in Porto, while the wide-brimmed hat was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez.

Although the brand is primarily associated with Port, they have been fully committed to Sherry since George Sandeman first set up an office in Cádiz in 1809. Today, Sandeman concentrates its efforts in Jerez on the production of a handful of premium-quality old solera sherries.

Aged biologically under flor for a minimum of five years, the ‘Don’ Fino is bracingly dry, fresh and tangy on the palate. The ‘Character’ Medium Dry Amontillado has a lovely nutty complexity balanced by a touch of sweetness from the 5% Pedro Ximénez in the blend. The ‘Armada’ Rich Cream Oloroso spends more than ten years ageing oxidatively in the solera system. Sweetened with 10% Pedro Ximénez, this Cream Sherry is bursting with aromas of dried fruits and roasted walnuts and is wonderfully smooth and velvety on the palate. The ‘Royal Ambrosante’ is a sumptuously sweet 20-year-old Pedro Ximénez drawn from an old solera established in 1894. The ‘Imperial’ Brandy de Jerez is aged for one year in Sherry casks, it boasts aromas of dried fruits, butterscotch and vanilla and a smooth and lingering finish.
