Torres 20

Distillation and aging: Double distillation of Parellada and Ugni Blanc wines. The brandy then matures in select oak casks. It spends the first year in new oak, but is then transferred to older casks to avoid the excessive aromatic influence of new wood.

Storytelling: The wondrous arts employed by the scholar Arnau de Vilanova in the 13th century hold the sublime secret of this brandy: double distillation. During the 1960s, Miguel A. Torres began planting foreign varieties in his vineyards. Symbol of both age-old tradition and innovation, Torres 20 was among the first brandies in the Spanish market to use French varieties. It combined Ugni Blanc with the pale, fruity wines of the Parellada variety, grown on the high slopes of the Alt Penedès. The base wines undergo double distillation in traditional copper pot stills to produce pure and aromatic wine spirits. Over the course of many years, these delicate wine spirits age in select oak casks, gradually developing warm aromas of spices and an elegant palate. The bottle is inspired by a decanter that dates back to the second generation of the Torres family. The heirloom survives to this day, handed down through generations. This constant search for perfection has been recognized on numerous occasions, including the gold trophy for Best Brandy in the World at the prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition (UK).
