Torres Jaime 1 Brandy is the top Spanish Brandy made by Miguel Torres and one of the best Spanish Brandies full stop. In the 18th century, the Torres family bought their first vineyard in the Penedès region. A century later, in 1870, the House of Torres, producer and exporter of wines was founded by Jaime Torres Vendrell. It was at this time that The Casa Milá, known as “La Pedrera”, the most representative building of that intensively creative period of modernism in Barcelona, was built. In homage to the figure of Gaudí and of the innovative spirit of those men whose philosophy of a “job well done” was passed from father to son, the House of Torres created this old noblesse brandy which carries the founders name. La Pedrera belongs to La Caixa de Catalunya and the bottle was designed by the architect Tanaka.
Torres Jaime 1 Brandy has been made with from very old soleras aged from selected distilled white wines. Some of the soleras started off as distilled Parellada wines destined for Torres’ 10 brandy, and which have been kept aside for many years to create a valuable reserve stock. These old reserves have been enriched with brandy form the best soleras, the oldest being 30 years old. Finally, to complement the aromatic intensity of these brandies with lighter fruity and floral notes, a small amount of 1972 eau-de-vie of Folle Blanche lees is added, the rarest and noblest of grapes, used to make the highest quality pot still brandies.
Also available in a 5cl miniature bottle.
