A smooth and mellow Brandy de Jerez with sweet aromas of caramel and spice and a delicious vanilla finish.
Soberano is produced from Airen grapes grown in the La Mancha region of Spain. Once picked, the Airen grapes are pressed in Gonzalez Byass’ distillery and the best musts are chosen for fermentation. The musts are distilled in column stills where the skilled master distiller selects the central part or “heart” of the “holanda”, discarding the “heads” and “tails”. Blending and Ageing: The selected “holandas” are then aged at the Gonzalez Byass bodega in Jerez. Here younger brandy is carefully blended with an older brandy in each successive Criadera, so that it gradually assumes the characteristics of the oldest and best brandy possible. Perfect on its own, on ice or with a range of mixers.
Soberano 5 features in its name the number of “criaderas” or cask ageing stages through which it passes along its maturing process, 5 in total. The barrels used are never new: they all must have previously held Jerez wine, which determines the final flavor and character of the brandy.
