Proof66 Notes

William and Humbert is a Spanish company specializing in wines and sherries but also involved int bottling and importation of spirits. They were founded as a winery in 1877 by Sir Alexander Williams and Arthur Humbert (who lent their names to the company). In the latter part of the 20th century, they undertook expanded operations, often with Dutch counterparts.

Gran Duque de Alba brandy is a blend of both the flagship Duque de Alba and the Oro ("gold") Duque de Alba. This blend is given an additional aging in American oak sherry casks of a specific 20yr old sherry called Don Guido. They say it is complex and majestic on the palate.

Gran Duque XO was named Best Spanish Brandy in the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition (out of a field of 59 international brandies).
