Cardenal Mendoza Cocktail Competition: Bartenders from all over the world have proven that Cardenal Mendoza brandy has an extraordinary depth of flavours and that it perfectly suits with coffee, chocolate and cola. In this competition, the winning bartender will win a trip for two people to Jerez de la Frontera to visit our winery.

Cardenal Mendoza Ready to Drink


Cardenal Mendoza  Experience 'Ready to Drink': The versatility when it comes to consuming Cardenal Mendoza is one of its many particularities. This year we want to focus on the latter fact to develop our own “ready to drink” recipes with three of our Cardenal Mendozas: Classic, Nebulis and Angelus.

Cardenal Mendoza & Cocktail

Cardenal Mendoza Music Festival: La música es parte fundamental de la alegría de vivir y, como no puede ser de otra manera, Cardenal Mendoza quiere siempre estar presente donde esta se respira. En nuestra mítica bodega de Celestino organizaremos una fantástica experiencia musical en la que, por supuesto, se podrá degustar Cardenal Mendoza de forma clásica o en sus otras excitantes variantes tales como los ready to drink, coctelería, etc…

Cardenal Mendoza Nebulis "Cigar Club": In this case, the protagonist will be Cardenal Mendoza Nebulis. We will develop several tastings in “cigar clubs” around the Iberian Peninsula where cigar lovers can taste the smoked of Cardenal Mendoza Nebulis. What more could you ask for? Cigar fans are in luck!

Through this year’s poster, we wanted to convey the moment we all long for, the return to normal. After turbulent months, it’s time to reclaim enjoyment in a serene and hopeful way with Cardenal Mendoza as the main actor and source of liveliness. Artwork made by the Jerez artist Daniel Diosdado.

Another year of awards

Cardenal Mendoza has once again demonstrated in 2022 why it is the top choice of brandy for many mixologists around the world. 

We are proud to have been ranked as top 3 in the categories of  Top Five Best-Selling Brandies awarded in the Drinks International Brand Report 2022.

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.
