Distillation in stills at 65º C to obtain the excellent Holandas. The extraordinary characteristics of this brandy are the result of a painstaking selection of the materials it is made with. It begins with the selection of excellent Palomino and Airen white wines; early distillation and the methods employed are decisive to the final quality of the Holandas, which are aged in casks of American red oak that have previously been aged with Oloroso sherry. Then they enter the traditional system of Criaderas y Soleras in the 10th Criadera, progressively going down until they reach the Solera cask. The amount of brandy taken out is carefully controlled in order to ensure that the brandy maintains the same age at all times.
