Description: Denominacien de Origen: Brandy de Jerez, Sherry Brandy, comes exclusively from the Sherry District. The production and ageing of the Sherry Brandy follows the traditional methods of the region.
The brandy is obtained from grape distillate and then aged in butts of American oak for several years. The casks have previously been used in the ageing of Cream and Oloroso Sherries, which ensure that the brandy gains exceptional smoothness with ageing. The ageing system used is known as the Solera system,(fractional blending) which consists of a continuous mix of young brandies with older ones resulting in a brandy of consistent quality.
The base brandy that formed this particular 'solera' originated from the cellars of one of the members of the Hidalgo family where it had been kept under lock and key for two generations without being touched.
Aroma: Complex rich woody aroma with nuances of walnuts.

Established in 1792, Bodegas Hidalgo is one of the oldest Sherry producers in existence, with Javier Hidalgo, sixth generation of the Hidalgo family, now in charge of what is widely regarded as the definitive Manzanilla house.
The range of Manzanilla, premium and aged Sherries produced by the Bodega is considered a benchmark of quality and excellence the world over.
Using the best Palomino Fino grapes grown in the bright albariza soils of Sanlucar de Barrameda, Bodegas Hidalgo produces dry salty Sherries through biological ageing via the solera process under natural flor. They have also pioneered an aged, single vineyard 'Pasada Pastrana' Sherry and an 'En Rama' version of their La Gitana Manzanilla which is released twice a year according to the flor cycle.
