In 1790 Sandeman was founded in London by George Sandeman, a young Scot from Perth. Specialising in wines from Porto and Jerez, Sandeman was the first company to brand its name on a cask with a hot iron in 1805. It was also one of the first to label and advertise its wines. The ‘Sandeman Don’ is one of the most iconic images of the world of wine, painted in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by university students in Porto, while the sombrero was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez.

The ‘Armada’ Superior Cream Sherry spends more than ten years ageing oxidatively as an Oloroso in the solera system. Sweetened with 10% Pedro Ximénez, this Cream Sherry is bursting with aromas of dried fruits and roasted walnuts and is wonderfully smooth and velvety on the palate.

Deep mahogany in colour, with golden highlights. Complex Oloroso characters of roasted walnuts, sweet spices and dried fruits are enriched by coffee and treacle flavours from the addition of Pedro Ximénez. The final wine is full-bodied, layered and well balanced with a very smooth and velvety finish.
