Dos Maderas Rum Px

External Review by Palm Bay International:

Founded in 1877 by two British brothers-in-law, Alexander Williams and Arthur Humbert, Willams & Humbert signature brands are Dry Sack Sherry, Gran Duque De Alba Brandy, and Dos Maderas Rum. Over the years, the company has grown to more than 1,200 acres of vineyards in Jerez and to include the largest bodega in Europe, with capacity for 60,000 casks of sherry and brandy. Dos Maderas PX is the world’s only triple cask aged rum, an innovative three-step aging process to create a distinctively rich and smooth taste. Country Sherry, Spain Production First aged in oak casks for five years in the Caribbean (Guyana & Barbados) and then sailed across to Spain for an additional three years of ageing in casks that once held the internationally acclaimed “Dos Cortados” 20-years-old Palo Cortado sherry. Dos Maderas Rum PX then undergoes a third and final aging step when the rum rests for two years in casks that previously held Don Guido, a 20 year aged Pedro Ximenez sherry. Bouquet Rich with aromas of fig and raisin. Tasting Notes Balanced palate accented with ripe fruit and tropical soice over a smoky oak and tobacco finish, laved with hints of Sherry. Color Dark amber Alcohol 40% Serving Suggestions Best savored neat or on the rocks. Pairs well with cigars and chocolate.

The winery was founded in 1877 by Sir Alexander Williams, a great admirer and connoisseur of sherry products, and Arthur Humbert, a specialist in international relations. Since then they have preserved part of the original wines and brandies (soleras) in high quality oak casks. These soleras are the base of the development and ageing of every sherry and brandy produced at Bodegas Williams & Humbert. In the 1960s José, Nicolás, Jesús and Ángel, members of the Medina family who were working at different Jerez wineries, decided to steer their careers towards creating their own winery: José Medina y Compañía. Founded by José Medina, at first the firm enjoyed the external support of his brothers, who became full-time partners two years later. Initially the firm focused their energies on international markets and gradually expanded through collaboration agreements with different purchasing companies. In 1979 they established a partnership with the Dutch multinational Royal Ahold through the Associate Company Luis Páez. These association and subsequent collaboration agreements enabled the family to increase their presence in Jerez; a few years later they were amongst the leading companies in sherry sales at international level. From the firm’s foundation, characterized by canny, aggressive business strategies, they started to acquire different brands that strengthened and diversified their capacities. Their latest acquisition was the international group Williams & Humbert, which now lends its name to all the family’s business activities. The relationship between the Medina family and the Dutch multinational Ahold dates back to 1979, when Ahold acquired a 50% share in Luis Páez S.A. (now Bodegas Williams & Humbert S.A.), a winery owned by the Medina brothers. In 2005 the Medina family reached an agreement with Royal Ahold to acquire the 50% share that the Dutch firm held in the corporation. Having regained full ownership of the company and its subsidiaries, this acquisition permitted the Medina family to consolidate the management of the business they were already responsible for.
