Considered by many to be the best Portuguese brandy, Adega Velha is the result of many years of work and dedication. The production of an old cognac such as the Adega Velha requires a lot of time and a lot of love for wine. To begin with, grapes of the highest quality are carefully selected from the best grapes from Quinta da Aveleda to produce a soft brandy with an excellent balance between acidity and alcohol content. This brandy is then subjected to a slow distillation (held in a Charentais distiller, mainly from the Cognac region of France). The Aguardente Velha is then left in French oak barrels Limousin for more than twelve years, resulting in a rich and complex aroma with tones of wood that are best appreciated after a meal
