It was Mr. Pedro Domecq Loustau That Contributed greatly to the fame of the Domecq wineries, creating what would become Spanish or cognac “brandy”: it all came about after the cancellation of an order of 500 barrels of wine eau de vie, of exceptional quality. The order Had Been prepared with the most sophisticated techniques and the best quality grapes and barrels, That after two years of work had become a top quality product. But the order was canceled two to financial troubles of the client. Mr. Domecq DECIDED to keep the wine in His cellars until he found another use for it. There it would remain for five long years. It is after such a long time That Mr. Domecq decides to taste the content of These barrels and Discovers That it has become the most exquisite cognac, a golden liquid with an incredible aroma. This would become the Domecq brandy: “FUNDADOR” That goes into the market in 1874, becoming the first brandy to be produced and distributed in Spain.
