Cardenal Mendoza is the first brandy, which the owners of Sánchez Romate originally produced for their private consummation in 1887. The name is based on the historical figure named Pedro González de Mendoza (1423-1495). Not only did he speak up to the catholic kings for the financing of Columbus' expedition project. But he also played an important role during the reconquest of the Muslim kingdom, Granada.

Cardenal Mendoza is a Solera Gran Reserva made from the best Holandas, that ripe in the traditional Solera-Criadera-method. The oak barrels are soaked in Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez before the brandy starts to mature in them. This is also where the brandy from Sánchez Romate gets its dark colour and intensive taste from.
