Soberano in Spanish Wine and Spirits

The popular brand Soberano by Bodega González Byass is a worldwide landmark for anyone that enjoys quality brandy of Jerez, even though strictly speaking this drink can’t be considered “brandy” anymore and nowadays it is labeled as “spirit” instead. A few years back, in 2009, González Byass decided to reduce its alcohol content from 36º to 33º. According to the current regulation, for a drink to be labeled as “brandy” it should have above 36º of alcohol content.

What made this worldwide known drink manufacturer make this decision? Apparently the search of new markets and the need to adapt to new times lead Gozález Byass to change this iconic brand.

Only the alcoholic content of the traditional Soberano was reduced, and Soberano 5 and Soberano 8 remain intact. This way, they follow the steps of another popular drink manufacturer, Osborne, who also decided to reduce the alcoholic content of their popular brand Veterano.

Soberano is made with the highest quality wine. Base wine is aged in wineskins using the celebrated “criaderas y soleras” system. This is a process for aging wine, beer, vinegar, brandy, etc. by fractional blending in such a way that the finished product is a mixture of ages, with the average age gradually increasing as the process continues over many years. This process takes almost a year.

This spirit tastes strong in the mouth, although it is soft and round at the same time. It is amber colored with golden highlights and its bouquet has hints of oak wood and dried fruits.
