About this product +

Producer >

Jan Pettersen, right, is master of production and ageing of fine, unblended, untreated sherries. Made from the finest wines, these range from the pale, light and elegant Finos to the unique Antique sherries and have received numerous international awards. The brandies are made using only alambic distillates of selected white wines: primarily aged in new French and American oak and subsequently for long periods in sherry ageing barrels. Only the highest categories of brandy are made and it is rare to find such  exceptional sherries and brandies made under one roof. With the increasing popularity of sherries throughout Europe and the States, as an aperitif and accompanying food, it is something that should be found in the cellar of every top restaurant.
