Luis Felipe Brandy was born in the south of Spain, in Andalusia, surrounded by natural landscapes of unparalleled beauty, among the Guadalquivir marshes, the beaches of the Costa de la Luz and the Sierra de Huelva.
La Palma del Condado, headquarters of WINERY RUBIO, is located in the heart of the area wine-growing region of the County of Huelva, a region with an ancient tradition in the production and trade of wine and spirits. A land chosen by lovers of art and history, by those who enjoy sports and the best gastronomy.
La Palma del Condado preserves a rich cultural and architectural heritage, in which stately mansions of old families dedicated to the wine industry and trade, Mudejar hermitages, baroque churches, squares that are oases of palm trees stand out.
The legend of Luis Felipe Brandy begins in 1893 with the discovery in a secluded corner of awinery in La Palma del Condado of some oak barrels that contained an aged brandy unlike anything known until then.
Endowed with a notable density of color and aromas, as well as a soft opening favored by the passage of time. The person who discovered it, an oenologist experienced in winemaking and a good taster, said in amazement that he had never tasted anything similar with exceptional qualities that distinguished it from everything known at that time, whether made in France or in Jerez.
Those almost forgotten barrels were marked with the mention LUIS FELIPE for having been reserved for Don Antonio de Orleans, Duke of Montpensier and son of the King of France Luis Felipe I, who resided in the Sevillian palace of San Telmo until 1890.
Since its discovery more than a century ago, LUIS FELIPE brandy has maintained its magnificent range of excellence thanks to artisanal aging and a very limited production. Luis Felipe Brandy is aged through the traditional process of “soleras” and “criaderas” in American oak barrels arranged in “cachones” or “andanas”, some about others.
The oldest distillateis found in the casks closest to the ground, therefore called “soleras”, from which they are extracted. small quantities for bottling, without emptying them completely.
The content taken out is replaced with younger distillate from the casks on the upper level, called “criaderas”, in which It has remained for years.
The winery is made up of stills, distillates, batches of butts and barrels, racking in soleras and criaderas, freshness of a winery with noble architecture, the smell of oak wood that fills it everything, the rumor of anecdotes of prominent figures in our history
