This aperitif is the result of the coupage of very old Oloroso Wines with Pedro Ximenez from the soleras of our iconic PX ‘EL Candado’. The procedure involves a hydro-alcoholic maceration process of Cinchona bark (Quina) with gentian root, natural licorice extract and nutmeg, along with a selection of dried citrus fruits, such as grapefruit and Seville oranges. The result is a stylish, complex, one-of-a-kind aperitif with a bitter refreshing note. The Pedro Ximenez also provides a characteristic nuance of dried fruit (sultanas, dried figs, dates) that makes this tonic wine ever more unique.
A fresh and sweet palate with citrus and slightly tart notes, all wrapped up in a spicy combination of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla ... leaning into the sweet reminders of the Oloroso Sherry barrels where it is aged.
Dark mahogany color with coppery tones. Spicy aromas with vegetal notes from the botanicals and Oloroso Sherry. Slightly bitter notes of Cinchona, combining well with the botanicals (licorice, nutmeg) and hints of dried fruits (dates, sultanas). A stylishcitrus touch and the quinine bitterness bring about a warm, lingering aftertaste.
Ideal as a complement in cocktails (Rum Old Fashioned, Negroni, Mahattan, etc), it also makes for a perfect aperitif in a tumbler glass, onthe rocks, with a cinnamon stick and a twist of orange. Serve with crisps, olives and pickles.
