From one of bossanova's favourite sherry producer's, this Vermut is a real treat. Dark brown with aromas/flavous of bark, cinnamon, wormwood bitter orange peels and quite viscous on the palate. It has a soft start and a markedly sour profile. Superb as a digestif or with an equal (or two) part of club soda, tonic, or Spanish cava! 

REGION Spain > Andalusia > Jerez
GRAPE(S) Palomino Fino & Pedro Ximénez
ABV 15%
SCALE Semi-Sweet

Made with the best oloroso and Pedro Ximénez, with a mix of 27 botanicals and macerated for months in oloroso casks, then aged in a solera system for 8 years. 

Rey Fernando de Castilla was founded in 1960s by Fernando Andrada-Vanderwilde, who was part of an aristocratic family involved in winemaking for over 200 years. He took over some old sherry cellars from Pedro Domecq, as well as brandy soleras from Marqués del Real Tesoro. After having operated as Fernando III, the company was renamed Fernando de Castilla in 1972. He focused primarily on top quality brandy as well as on Pedro Ximénez wine.

Later the Norwegian-born Jan Pettersen bought Bodegas Rey Fernando de Castillo in 1999 and upgraded the brand to one of the most interesting of the D.O. Jerez / Xéres / SherryPettersen also acquired a neighbouring almacenista José Bustamente and focused entirely on high-end, complex sherries, usually from a single solera. While some of them are old enough to carry a VOS or VORS label, the bodega doesn’t believe in this system. Pettersen feels that it does not accurately reflect what makes sherry so special.
