"The refined taste and rich character of Lepanto selections match the rich and colorful history of their Spanish homeland.
Lepanto is produced from Palomino grapes grown in the Gonzalez Byass vineyards located in the best areas of Jerez. Grapes are picked early to obtain high acidity and an alcoholic level between 10-12% vol. The wines are distilled in two 25 hectolitre alembic pot stills of the Charentais type. The spirit is twice distilled, a process that lasts 10 hours, requiring constant attention and great expertise to ensure that the “holandas” acquire the perfect characteristics and quality required for Lepanto. Lepanto’s quality is best appreciated when served in a balloon brandy glass at room temperature. Satisfyingly complex and dry, it is ideal at the end of a good meal or whenever the occasion calls for the unhurried enjoyment of a first class drink.
Topaz in color with golden reflections. Dry and delicate on the palate, with a wide array of flavors including caramel, vanilla, dried almonds and raisins.

Lepanto is produced by the Gonzalez Byass Company.
In 1835, a young man named Manual Maria Gonzalez Angel came to Jerez hoping to find a place in the thriving and booming Sherry Industry. Motivated by the constant growth in exports, he purchased that very year a small winery where he started producing and exporting his own wines. In 1885, 20 years later and given the increasing success of his company, Mr. Gonzalez decided to associate with Mr. Robert Blake Byass, his agent in England. From that, the Gonzalez Byass Company was born.
