Romate - Uno et Mil, Solera Gran Reserva - Brandy 70cl Bottle
70cl Bottle £40.69 In Stock
Description: The origin of this brandy is one thousand American oak casks of selected grape spirits, and therefore its name of One in a Thousand , or, 1/1000, which is the way the casks are named in the Cellars.
"Single Barrel" is quite a common name in the spirits trade, (bourbon, whisky, aged rum) since each production of bottles originates from just one barrel which makes them all the same but with subtle distinctions from one barrel to the other. No attempt at all is made to homogenise the bottles. The differences in bouquet and colour are due to the prior impregnation of each individual barrel with sherry to their location and to the different ages of the component spirits used.
The distillates originate from wine of the Airen variety, distilled to a low strength in copper pot stills in order to conserve intact all those properties that lend character and complexity to the distillation. The brandy is then matured in American oak casks which have previously contained Sherry (Finos and Amontillados), in accordance with the standards laid down.
Ricardo Real, oenologist and brandy expert, has selected the most outstanding casks which later are bottled in their pure state, without blending or homogenising, numbering each bottle by hand with an indicating of which cask they have come from.
This is a brandy of exceptional characteristics, with an attractive light amber colour due to the casks previously impregnated with Finos and Amontillados, with deep aromas and smooth vanilla touches with an intense and prolonged taste.

More than a century ago now, in 1887, the Sanchez Romate Hnos. house laid down its first brandy solera. This Solera was brought into being in order to satisfy the needs of the Sanchez Romate family and a few intimate friends for a brandy of truly exquisite quality. The astonishing quality and excellence of the product led to the commercialisation of their brandy. Sanchez Romate Hnos built up their soleras in order to meet the demand of their product, without lowering the quality in the slightest. Thus the Brandy Gran Reserva " Cardenal Mendoza" was born. Named after Pedro Gonazlez de Mendoza (1428-1495), son of the marquis of Santillana, humanist and statesman at the time of the Catholic monarchs, who became archbishop of Toledo and primate of Spain in 1482. Confidant of the Catholic monarchs Isabelle and Ferdinand, Who also played a big part in the discovery of America and the re-conquest of Spain in the Battle of Granada.
