Pedro Ximenez is made from sun-dried grapes and left for many years in oak casks to mature.  It is a dark, rich and opulently sweet sherry wine with a dried plum flavour as well as chocolate molasses, butterscotch and raisins on the nose. Satisfying luscious finish with plenty of honeyed toffee. Try serving a shot of Pedro alongside homemade ice cream, or save it for the Christmas pudding. Serve slightly chilled.

The Hidalgo family moved from northern Spain to Andalucía in the 18th Century and began producing Sherry in 1792. Since then, the business has remained a family concern through six generations; they still produce wines in the same premises in the centre of Sanlúcar de Barrameda as they did two centuries ago. Keeping the operation small, owning 200 hectares of vineyards and focussing on quality over quantity has enabled them to produce some excellent Sherries.

Droderigo de Triana was a local man who sailed with Columbus to the new world. He was in the crow’s nest of the ship when the coast of what we now call the Americas came into view.
