A modern expression of the heroic strength and courage shown by the Gran Duque de Alba, Don Fernando Alvarez de Toledo, Grand Duke of the Regiment of Flanders.
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
