The poster of Cardenal Mendoza Golden Week 2023

"I have wanted to immerse myself, and immerse the viewer, in a vibrant celebration. With colors, nature in its full splendor, the festive atmosphere, joy, and a touch of chaos, following the red thread of Cardenal Mendoza wherever the celebration takes us. Likewise, it was essential for me to give prominence to the different elements that we can find within our beloved brandy, which fill both the sight and the palate with their flavors and nuances. In summary, I sought to convey the desire to fully enjoy life and the Cardenal Mendoza Golden Week, as well as the pleasure I experienced in designing it all."

Another year of awards

Cardenal Mendoza has once again demonstrated in 2024 why it is the top choice of brandy for many mixologists around the world. 

We are proud to have been awarded in the Drinks International Awards 2024 in the Top Ten Best-Selling Brandy category.

An award that makes the fifteen years of aging in American oak barrels that Cardenal Mendoza's authentic Gran Reserva Sherry brandy requires, a long artisan process that transmits its sophisticated woody nuances, and the more than 200 years of passion and effort for creating a brand of the highest quality have been worth it.
