Vara Fine Spanish Brandy
Distilled in Jerez del Frontera Spain from local wines placed in copper pot stills. 75% of the wine is single distilled and 25% of the wine is double distilled resulting in a combined spirit of 70.5% ABV. This spirit is then brought to a barrel aging strength of 62.5% ABV before being placed into a classic solera system of Spanish Sherry casks for rotations of over three years before being imported to our distillery. To finish this brandy it spends another 4-6 months in Spanish Sherry casks in our cellar before being lightly filtered and then brought to its final 40% ABV (80 proof) strength and bottled.
Our Fine Spanish Brandy shows the color of Baltic Amber. On the nose we get a hint of Medjool dates, toasted coconut with a touch of saddle leather. On the palate our brandy is mouth-filling in richness with flavors of honey, dates, dark caramel and nutmeg. The finish… we will let you know tomorrow…
Our Fine Spanish Brandy is wonderfully enjoyed neat in a snifter after dinner or with a cube or two and an orange peel in the afternoon. For social enjoyment these brandy cocktails deserve special consideration; Metropolitan, Side Car, Vieux Carre, Brandy Daisy, Between the Sheets, and Prescription Julep.
