Brandy

Brandy

Brandy is a spirit which is obtained from distillation of grape wine, normally with an ethanol volume of between 36 and 60%.

The word brandy comes from the Dutch word "brandewijn", which means "burnt wine", since Holland was the main destination for these wines, which had the necessary conditions for consumption and distillation.

From Selección Ibérica we bring one of the most sought after and exclusive Spanish brandies, coming from the south of Spain, in the province of Huelva.

Brandy Great Reserve Luis Felipe

In the town of La Palma del Condado, in the province of Huelva, in the south of Spain, around 1893, they discovered some oak barrels in one of his cellars (being a famous winegrowing area). The content of these barrels was an aged brandy with a different colour and scent from other known ones.

Those barrels, covered in dust and cobwebs, read: "Louis Phillipe", since they had been stored for the the famous Duke of Montpensier, son of King Louis Phillipe I of France, who lived in the well-known Seville Palace of San Telmo for some time.

Its discoverers have continued cultivating and making this brandy keeping the taste, traditional upbringing and limited production of a unique brandy.
