The firm of Williams & Humbert dates back to 1877, when Alexander Williams entered his father-in-law's family wine business. Although the main branch was based in London, the company also owned bodegas in Jerez de la Frontera. The firm eventually expanded to worldwide export of their premium sherries and brandies. Today, it is owned by Royal Bols Wessanen N.V., and Luis Páez S.A. The brand Gran Duque de Alba was acquired in 1993. The pale bottle of Gran Duque de Alba Solera Gran Reserva has an unusual, voluptuous shape. On the center of the label, circled in gold, is a portrait of the famous Duke. Tasting Notes: Mahogany color with gold highlights. Complex bouquet of oak, prune and sherry. Velvety texture with flavors of caramel, chocolate and orange, with a long finish.

Spanish brandy, aged in sherry casks using a solera system. This is my favorite Gran Reserva brandy de Jerez, and I find it richer & smoother than the popular Cardinal Mendoza. Excellent on its own after dinner, but it can also be used in cocktails if you're willing.
Spanish Sidecar: 4 parts brandy de Jerez, 2 parts Cointreau, 1 part fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Shake with ice & serve up.

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
