Jerez de la Frontera - Sandeman

Sandeman is best know for its 'Don' logo. A dark, dramatic, Zorro-like figure, dressed like a typical caballero de Jerez in his cape and wide-brimmed hat, holding a glass of ruby-red port, he was originally designed by Scottish artist George Massiot Brown in the 1920s. Founded by George Sandeman, from Perth, in 1790, the company became part of Seagrams in the 1980s, but is still run by the seventh generation of the Sandeman family. As well as sherry and brandy, they also make port (though not in Jerez).

The main building is an attractive white structure, visible from the main road. With its Sherry Visitor Centre, the bodega is conveniently located next to the Real Escuela Andaluz del Arte Ecuestre (Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art), just outside the city centre. Again, smaller than the big two, Pedro Domecq and Tio Pepe, this bodega offers a shorter tour, which is more suited to children and elderly visitors.
