With nearly 140 years of history behind it, the Bodega Williams & Humbert, founded in 1877 by Sir Alexander Williams, great expert and passionate about Jerez products, and Arthur Humbert, specialist in international relations, is recognized as one of the most prestigious wineries of Jerez and is renowned worldwide for the production of Sherry.
The production of sherry and ex sherry casks is very important for soft and famous spirits such as whiskey and rum.
Bodega Williams & Humbert holds the largest stock in the world of barrels used for sherry and in use for refining its rums.
Sherry is a laborious and sophisticated wine; fallen into oblivion for years, has never really lost its value of wine of excellence so much that lately the spotlights are rekindling on this truly unique product.
The plants of the Bodegas Williamas & Humbert, considered the largest in Europe, are made up of a complex of connected buildings that occupy an area of about 180,000 square meters.
The products of Bodegas combine tradition and know-how acquired over the centuries and expressed by the quality of its prestigious labels.
The winery still preserves wines and brandy that date back to the time of its foundation and has obtained the National Architecture Award.
The vineyards belonging to the company are located in the triangle formed by Jerez de la Frontera, Puerto di Santa Maria and Sanlucar di Barrameda, an area that enjoys a particular and favorable microclimate due to the presence of the Guadalquivir and Guadalete rivers. On the global scene, Williams & Humbert is developing an ambitious program to diversify the high quality agri-food sector.
Among the most innovative projects, there are the Rum Dos Maderas that are made and partially aged in the Caribbean, and then transferred to Jerez where they end up maturing.
Exceptional rums are born. This is why Dos Maderas rums are considered among the best rums in the world and with the best value for money.
