In 1781, Juan Sánchez de la Torre joined forces with a partner from the Romate family and laid the foundations of the Bodegas Sánchez Romate Hermanos. Their company produced sherry for more than 100 years with gradual expansion, but it reached a milestone when in 1887 the fourth generation of Sánchez Romate decided to create an exclusive brandy for the family and their closest circle of friends.
This was the beginning of Cardenal Mendoza Solera Gran Reserva, the company’s flagship brand and one of the best-selling brandies in Spain and abroad.
This would be absolutely perfect in a Brandy Alexander. It has subtle aromas of almonds and hazelnuts with flavours of coffee and dried fruits.
