La Copa Vermouth Wine

Vermouth wine by Gonzalez Byass

In Gonzalez Byass there are references to Vermouth wine dating back to 1896. The inventory books show the existence of Vermouth wine between 1896 and 1926. Firstly in the section of foreign wines and then as of 1909 included in the bottling business from various regions. Vermouth La Copa is based on an original recipe and design dating back to 1906 retrieved from our historic archives.

La Copa brand was one of the first to be registered by Gonzalez Byass dating back to 1884. The production follows the original recipe from 1906 and the packaging is a replica of the original label. La Copa wine is produced from fine Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez soleras which are more than 8 years old. A meticulous selection of botanicals is carried out, with the aim of achieving the perfect bitter-sweet, aromatic balance.

The principal botanicals used are wormwood, savory, clove and cinnamon. The proportion of botanicals used is a closely guarded secret, kept under lock and key in the winery.

There can be no doubt as to La Copa’s origins in Jerez.
