El CANDADO –

The Spanish translation for “The Padlock” is a unique sherry produced only with Pedro Ximenez grapes, grown in the Sherry district of Spain. One that proclaims to be the crème de la crème of PX’s – and if you’re not entirely convinced, this sherry comes with its own padlocked top – the reason for this is to stop the midnight sippers in their tracks. Yes, you need a key to unlock the padlock! A contemporary chastity belt!

Tasting Notes:

The grapes are ripened on wire racks for two or three weeks in the warm Andalusian sun of Jerez de la Frontera. Deep sienna brown colour with a deep olive green hue.

Wonderful nose filled with the aroma of toffee, molasses, spice and brandied ripe raisins. The palate is a viscous treasure with its rich luscious texture and oil-like consistency. Totally mouth-filling flavours of spice, honey, toffee and crushed dried raisins fill the mouth. Incredible length – perfect harmony with a clean finish and exceptionally long aftertaste of treacle, caramel, honey and raisins. Perfect with chocolate cake and a must with the Christmas pudding.
