Fundador Supremo 18 was recently named the Best Brandy in the World 2019 by the esteemed panellists of the International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC).
Founded in 1969 by German-British wine expert Anton Massel, the annual competition receives entries from around the world, and is considered a high honour in the industry.
The judging process is done over six months, consisting of blind taste tests and analysis, and the panel is composed of 250 specialists from all over the globe.
The Filipino-owned brandy from Andalusia is housed in sherry casks. Fundador Supremo 18 is aged in very special oloroso sherry casks, found and used only in Southern Spain.
This casks gives it aromatic and round notes of dried fruit and roasted nuts. This is combined with smooth, strong, intensive hints of vanilla, walnuts, tobacco, and coffee grounds. Notes of wood stand out as well and provide a very elegant and lingering finish.
Under the category of Brandy de Jerez, the drink carries a lot of culture and pride within its bottles.
