Lepanto is one of the products which we are most proud of at Gonzalez Byass. The best holandas (eau-de-vie) are choosen for the Lepanto Solera. The systematic blending is done at an excruciatingly slow pace and well over a decade passes before Lepanto reaches the final solera, where it is ready for bottling. In fact, this quite unique brandy must travel through fifteen scales of increasing age within the "Solera system".
Century-old oak casks and infinite patience play an important part in the production of this truly magnificent "Solera Gran Reserva".
The reputation of Lepanto helps the "Brandy de Jerez" in general, situate itself among the great distilled drinks of the world.
Review: Whenever I go to Spain I always bring with me a bottle of this famous brandy. I like its smooth taste which really goes through the throat with out any throaty bumps. The decanter is very beautiful which can be displayed in my bar. Enjoy sipping to the last drop. Ah magnifico!!!
