Some hundreds of years ago Whiskeys Scotland Distilleries found that their whiskeys adquired distinguished aromas an flavors when ageing them in barrels peviously used to store these wines. Since then the more reputable brands of whiskey have been using barrels seasoned with those wines for their special batches.

Del Pino has keept “Criaderas y Soleras” of barrels since its foundation in 1935. Our experience, together with the demand of some of our customers impulse us in 2015 to start the “seasoning of barrels” specifically for ageing lateron whiskeys and rums.

Each wine permeate a different touch to the barrel, which will be transfered in the future to the spirit it age. For example, an Oloroso wine will give body and structure, and a Pedro Ximenez will gives smoothnes and palate.

We count today, apart from our usual bodegas, with two cellars specifically to store barrels with Pedro Ximenez wines, with Olorosos, as well as some other special wines. It is worth mentioning that since 2017 we are seasoning wines with Kosher Passover certification.

Wood quality is extremelly important to obtain an outstanding whiskey or rum, but also does the wine. We, at Del Pino, are committed about getting the best qualities in the wines we use for seasoning barrels as we are convinced that it is our target to obtain the best results in our own benefit, but specially in that of our customers.
