Royal Warrant holding fine wine and spirits merchant Justerini & Brooks is delighted to announce a new, exclusive, direct partnership with leading Sherry producer Bodegas Tradicion.
Bodegas Tradicion is a leading boutique estate, producing a range of sherries that aims unapologetically for the very highest reaches that Jerez can offer. From a Fino with an astonishing average age of 10-12 years, aged for just about as long as flor can survive, to a 30 year old Palo Cortado that is actually closer to 40 and an Oloroso that contains wines from the 1860s, these are true oenological jewels, of age and great beauty.
According to Justerini & Brooks’ Spain buyer Mark Dearing, “to work with such beautiful wines and fly the flag for Sherry as a truly wonderful and underappreciated category of fine wine is a real privilege. They are truly genre-defining examples of complex, exquisitely balanced old Sherries, a million miles away from the high production, minimally aged bottlings so often seen on supermarket shelves.”
The Tradicion range is natural and truly artisanal in nature, focusing on very old casks that have not been chill filtered, blended, stabilized, clarified, sweetened or seen the addition of caramel or colour. The full range comprises a Fino, Amontillado VORS (30 Years), Oloroso VORS (30 Years), Palo Cortado VORS (30 Years), Cream and Pedro Ximenez VOS (20 Years).
Commenting on their new partnership, Lorenzo Garcia-Iglesias, General Manager of the estate, he said that “we are delighted to have found the best possible partner for our brand and products in the UK. Justerini & Brooks share our commitment to quality and we believe in their ability to position Sherry rightfully as one of the great wines of the world.”
Justerini & Brooks will be distributing to the premium on-trade and private clients from Monday 11th November 2019.
