" Originally produced in 1887 for the exclusive use of the Sanchez Romate family and close friends, and is still made the same way today. Round and smooth with a rich palate and finish." ~Distillery notes
Cardenal Mendoza: Sherry Brandy
In 1887 the owners of Sánchez Romate Hermanos began to make a unique, different brandy for their own consumption. The quality soon earned increasing fame and the winery decided to market it with the name Cardenal Mendoza.
The brandy Cardenal Mendoza, matured in Sherry casks, has an average age of at least 15 years, much more than the required minimum. All our brandies are Solera Gran Reserva, the highest category within the regulating council of Brandy de Jerez. It is the noble spirit from the area around Jerez de la Frontera in Spain.
