Extremely Rare Barbadillo Versos 1891 Sherry to be Sold in Hong Kong

Berry Bros. & Rudd, a leading British wine and spirit merchant, is launching an extremely rare and limited edition sherry - Barbadillo Versos 1891 in Hong Kong.

With only 100 bottles in existence and a price tag of 8,000 (approximately HK$89,450), the luxury Amontillado sherry from the Spanish winemaker Barbadillo dates back to the 19th century and is offered directly from a barrel in the Barbadillo family's personal collection.

The sherry is from one of five casks referred to as Los Nios (the children's casks), a christening gift given to former Barbadillo director, poet and sherry expert, Manuel Barbadillo when he was born in 1891. Generations of the Barbadillo family then tended to the centuries-old American-oak cask, in its cellar in Sanlcar de Barrameda, Southern Spain.

Deep mahogany in colour, the exclusive sherry fills the palate with intense nutty, woody and rich dried-fruit flavours, indicating its age.

The sherry has been bottled in the finest crystal glass that has been individually carved and etched with gold, whilst the bottle neck and the cork is hand painted with platinum, all presented in a fine Spanish leather box.

The concept of luxury Sherry luxury in the sense of exquisite quality and also only obtainable to a few is new, said Tim Holt, Regional Director of Sales at Bodegas Barbadillo. We aim to share this slice of our history to put the spotlight on one of the great wine regions of the world and hopefully this is will be a wakeup call to that fact.
