One of the best Sherries from a storied Spanish bodega that is music to the palate.

González Byass is one of the largest and most famous of Spain’s Sherry-making bodegas. It was founded in 1835 by Manuel María González Angel, who was joined shortly thereafter by his trading partner, Robert Blake Byass. The company has expanded with each generation — six of them — with ownership and operation firmly under family control. They have a wide range of Sherries, Cordials, and Wines in the portfolio.

Lepanto is the flagship luxury brand of Sherry from González Byass. The name comes from a famous sixteen century naval battle where European forces — lead by the Spanish King — defeated an encroaching Ottoman fleet.

Lepanto Solera Gran Reserva Spanish Brandy is made from 100% Palomino grapes. And it is one of the few Sherries actually distilled in Jerez. Perhaps most importantly, it is aged for a minimum of fifteen years using the Solera method in casks that previously aged Fino Sherry. This makes the Gran Reserva very rich with a gorgeous mouth-feel and a lightly dry finish that is music to the palate.

Smartass corner:
Used Sherry casks from González Byass are in great demand by Single Malt Whisky makers in Scotland due to their exception seasoning and the unique flavor profile they bring to aging spirits.
