Amathus Drinks adds Bodegas Argüeso to portfolio

Published:  12 April, 2019

Amathus Drinks has signed a deal as the exclusive UK distributor of sherry producer Bodegas Argüeso.

Amathus said it has worked closely with the winery to develop the inaugural release of the “Argüeso 1822” range, to deliver a “superb selection” of older wines and smart, modern packaging representing an uplift in quality from the standard range of Argüeso sherries.

The first Amathus shipment also includes the Manzanilla San Léon.

It has been a “real pleasure” working closely with Bodegas Argüeso to select, blend and develop the range, said Amathus Drinks’ head of wine, Jeremy Lithgow MW.

“Argüeso is great house with a tremendous inventory of older sherry, and we are delighted to be playing a part in their revival. The potential here is enormous and we are excited by the numerous possibilities this collaboration offers.”

Bodegas Argüeso were founded in 1822 in coastal Sanlucar de Barrameda, one of the three great towns of the sherry triangle and the home of Manzanilla. 

Recently, Argüeso have benefited from substantial investment allowing them to upgrade the cellars, including the installation of a team of in-house coopers to maintain and improve the quality of their hundreds of mature barrels.

Amathus Drinks and Bodegas Argüeso will display their new range of sherries for the first time at The Big Fortified tasting on 16 April.
