Zoilo Ruiz-Mateos

Founded in 1857 by the entrepreneur José-Maria Ruiz-Mateos who also owned the distillery known as Diez-Merito. He bought huge stocks of brandy from the Jerez bodegas, much of which had been left in casks for many years without being topped up in the traditional Solera fashion.

    Understood to be from around the turn of the 20th century, this very fine, rich, old brandy was probably bottled between 1960 and 1970 giving it a barrel age of around 50 years. It has an intensely toffee and mocha flavour with a rancio more consistent with old cognacs than grape brandies.

    Price:
    Excl. VAT: £231.00 Incl. VAT: £277.20

    Out of stock

    This very old, fine brandy is an exciting find. Thought to be from about the turn of the 20th century, it has an intense toffee and black treacle flavour with distinctive madeira qualities. Not to be confused with much later, unremarkable brandies bottled after 1983, although much of the packaging is similar.
