Jaime I , an exceptional brandy made from the Parellada variety - native to Catalonia and from which aromatic, dry and light white wines are produced - together with Folle Blanche, this is a small gem of a cognac that pays homage to the spirit of creation.
On the one hand, it pays tribute to the creative spirit of Jaime Torres Vendrell, who around 1870 founded the Torres winery; on the other, it also serves as homage to Antoni Gaudí, who in those years began to create some of his best known works.
Inspiration has also been key to the creation of this virtuous cognac, which brakes the prevailailing hectic lifestyle of today and, in an unusual and exceptional display of old age, matures in the serenity granted by fine American oak barrels.
Its assemblage is made up of vintage brandies, older than those normally used in the world's most valued VSOPs, leaving no doubt that this is the pride and joy of the Torres family's gran reserva.
Intense, complex, majestic, with a persistent finish in which fine, characteristically Mediterranean notes appear, Jaime I is pure creation molded by the passage of time, so vital to being able to value and appreciate what really matters.
