Bodegas Williams & Humbert was created more than 125 years ago and is one of the most prestigious bodega firms in the world. It was funded in 1877 by Sir Alexander Williams, a great admirer of Jerez products, and Arthur Humbert, a specialist in international relations.
Since the company´s beginning the wines and brandies have been conserved in oak barrels of the highest quality (soleras).
Gran Duque De Alba XO
The extraordinary characteristics of this brandy are a direct consequence of its raw materials: a combination of soleras of Gran Duque de Alba and Gran Duque de Alba Oro. Excellence upon excellence. A very old brandy with a complexity which only time can bestow.
A perfect combination of soleras of Gran Duque de Alba and Gran Duque de Alba Oro. Final ageing takes place in American oak casks which have previously aged Don Guido, a famed Pedro Ximenez sherry with a certified age of 20 years as guaranteed by the Sherry Regulating Council.
