Carlos 130 Brandy
It takes time to create something remarkable.
This 130th anniversary edition owes its character to the unprecedented emptying of two historic butts that form part of the founding solera, and the distillates aged over decades that master blender, Ignacio Lozano, has contributed from his private collection. All to create a brandy that conquers that passage of time.
The legacy of 130 years of history.

A liquid of unparalleled craftsmanship offering an indulgent and flavourful experience, through the harmonious pairing of complex saline and mineral notes, interwoven with flavours of nuts, leading to a silky and elegant finish.
Carlos I Gran Reserva Brandy
The story of Carlos I dates back to 1889 when, in the city of Jerez, a cellar master found some forgotten barrels in the corner of his cellar. Neither the cellar master nor anyone else knew where they came from but he realised they contained the most amazing brandy he’d ever tasted. He called it Carlos I to honour a great conqueror.
Production begins with a selection of the best Airén grapes, distilled in old pot-stills, before ageing in American oak casks that previously contained the finest wines from Jerez, old Amonitllados and Olorosos, producing an extraordinary brandy.
Carlos I has a deep, amber colour, with gold accents, it is intensely aromatic with notes of vanilla and cocoa, with great balance, complexity and length on the palate.
Carlos I Imperial XO Brandy
Carlos I Imperial is the result of more than 230 years of tradition and wisdom. It was created in the middle of the 20th century to commemorate the 400 years since the death of Carlos I.
Carlos I Imperial is an exquisite blend of our most treasured brandies, some of which are aged more than 20 years in oak casks which previously contained our most premium Oloroso and Amontillado Sherry.
The unique ageing system produces a brandy of extraordinary quality and aromatic complexity. An intense mahogany colour with subtle golden highlights, oak aromas with notes of walnut, fig and hazelnut.
Carlos I Pedro Ximenez Brandy
From its ageing in hand-selected casks from our PX Viejo Solera, founded in 1902, Carlos I PX Brandy Solera Gran Reserva has been crafted to transport you on a sensorial journey through fine fruity aromas, intertwined with elegant, sweet hints of roasted cocoa and licorice, imparted by these unique casks, which previously contained the most prized Osborne’s Pedro Ximénez for more than one hundred years.
