Luis Felipe Brandy - a royal treat

Since its discovery more than a century ago, Brandy LUIS FELIPE has maintained its excellent flavor thanks to traditional aging and a very limited production.

Brandy LUIS FELIPE matures in American oak barrels using the traditional process of "Soleras" and "Criaderas". The barrels are stored one on top of the other, in “cachones” (blocks) and “andanas” (rows).

 The contents of the lowest barrels are the oldest. These barrels are called "Soleras" (Suelo = soil). A small amount is taken from these casks for bottling. This amount is refilled from the casks above (the so-called criaderas), where this brandy has been stored there for many years.

Ideal environment

LUIS FELIPE was born in Andalusia, surrounded by beautiful landscapes, between the marshy areas of the Guadalquivir River, the beaches of the Costa de la Luz and the Sierra de Huelva mountains.

La Palma del Condado, headquarters of BODEGAS RUBIO, is located in the heart of the wine-growing region of Condado de Huelva, a region with a centuries-old tradition in the production and marketing of wine and spirits.

A rural region appreciated by art and history lovers, foodies and sports enthusiasts.

La Palma del Condado is home to a rich cultural and architectural heritage, with old mansions of families traditionally dedicated to the wine industry and trade, Mudejar chapels, baroque churches and squares resembling palm oases.

Bodegas Rubio - legendary

To understand the origin of this Andalusian brandy, one must first look back in history. The son of the French King Louis-Philippe I, who ruled in the so-called July Monarchy (1830 - 1848), was born on July 31, 1824 as the tenth and last child in Neuilly sur Seine.

Antoine-Marie-Philippe-Louis d'Orleans, duc de Montpensier was long considered a promising candidate for the Spanish throne and lived in the San Telmo Palace in Seville.

Brandy was obviously stored for him in La Palma del Condadao, but the barrels were quickly forgotten after his death on February 4, 1890.

Some time later, in 1893, some barrels with the inscription "Luis Felipe" were discovered in a bodega! The name gave information about the high society for which the contents of these barrels were originally intended.

In terms of taste, this old brandy differed significantly from what was previously known as brandy.

Some have the clock...

To finally have a brandy of this quality in the glass, you really need a lot of time.

In the solera principle, the 60-year-old brandy matures into an impressive experience - only for those who can wait!

The others have the time...

The Rubio brothers are in no hurry. Only a few bottles are filled each year.

Connoisseurs love the powerful impression that this brandy leaves behind.
