- Emilio Lustau was established in 1896 and was initially a small family concern until the founder`s son-in-law placed it on a business footing. The firm is perhaps best known as pioneering the Almacenista system, whereby individual dry sherries are produced from small private holdings. These are bottled under Lustau`s name but with the individual bodega's name on the label as well. Today they are amongst the most sought after Sherries in the region.
Lustau East India is a carefully prepared blend of two fine quality mature wines; an aged dry Oloroso and an aged sweet Pedro Ximenez, made from sun dried grapes. Once blended the wine is returned to American oak casks to 'marry' together for a period of one year prior to bottling. This produces a much smoother and more complex wine with great depth of character. The term East India Sherry originates from the 16th Century when barrels of Sherry were sent, lashed to the decks of sailing ships, to the Indies. It was recognised that wines benefited considerably in quality from their long sea journeys. Lustau East India is matured to reproduce its style.
