- The seed that grew into Gonzalez Byass was planted in 1835 by Manuel María Gonzalez Angel, with Robert Blake Byass - his agent in England - only joining the firm two decades later. The two families remained in partnership through much of the 20th Century and the business has grown to be one of Sherry's most recognisable and important names. In 1988 the Gonzalez family bought out the Blass family, taking sole control of the business. The business is based in some fine buildings in Jerez, including one designed by Eiffel. This is a must-see for any Sherry tourist, as is popping inside to see El Cristo (a Sherry butt holding in excess of 157000 litres), which was purchased for the visit of Queen Isabella II in 1862. This gigantic butt is accompanied by twelve 6000 litre butts, representing the twelve apostles, which surround El Cristo, except for Judas, which is used to store vinegar! Today, the company's cellars hold over 45 million litres of Sherry and Brandy de Jerez.
Essentially an unfiltered version of the famous Tio Pepe. This is Fino Sherry at its best. With a nose of wholemeal, olive, biscuits and green fruits, the palate is long and dry and stunningly refreshing, especially when drank as an aperitif.
- "Unclarified, unfiltered. Bottled 3 May 2012. Full yellow colour; very slightly cloudy. Powerfully aromatic with a hint of citrus and tangerine on the nose as well as tangy, nutty, slightly cheesy Fino intensity. Fresh, tangy, complex palate with lovely freshness as well as good texture. This has a lovely savoury quality to it. 92/100" Jamie Good,
