Osborne Felipe II Brandy de Jerez
Brandy de Jerez is produced from wine made from the Airen and Palomino grapes. It is aged in sherry casks, called botas, made of American oak. These casks must have been used to age sherry for at least 3 years prior to being used to age the brandy. The type of sherry that has occupied the cask will effect the brandy’s color, taste and aroma.
