Producer: Bodegas Baron
Bodegas Baron is a family owned bodega in Sanlúcar de Barrameda. Founded in 1631, they have a thoroughly modern approach in what is a very traditional region, a value shared with the Port of Leith Distillery.
Sourced from Bodegas Baron, a 480 year old producer with a very modern outlook, the un-matured version of this Oloroso wine will be used to season our oak casks in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the heart of Jerez in South West Spain, before we ship them to Scotland to fill them with whisky.
‘However, it was after tasting our way through their treasure trove warehouse, tucked away in the centre of the town, we knew we had found a life-long partner for our whisky’.
This sherry has a classic Oloroso character with flavours of dried fruits and prunes balamced with lighter tropical fruits. There is an undercurrent warming gingery spice and notes of coffee and hazalnuts troughout.
