Quinta do Gradil Old Brandy XO

History

A treasure kept in this single state that belonged to Sebastião José de Carvalho e Melo, the Marquês of Pombal. This brandy’s story begins in 1970, with the distillation of different indigenous grape varieties from Lisbon region in Charentais alembics. Originally from Cognac, France, this kind of alembic is characterized by its slow distillation process, typical from brandies of great quality, without any traces of impurities.

WineMaker

Vera Moreira.

WineMaking

After a careful distillation, this brandy aged, forgotten and quiet, over 40 years in great Portuguese and French oak vats.

Tasting Note

The long aging in oak gave to this brandy the amber, goldencolor. It holds hints of dried fruits and spices, harmonized with the perfection that only time can give, embraced with an elegant velvety texture and complexity.
