The Harveys story begins back in 1796 when the company was first founded in an old house on Bristol’s historic Denmark St as an importer of foreign wines. At the time sherry was imported into Britain in oak casks by ship, and then blended in Bristol. From there our sherry making expertise grew and grew to become a global icon of the drink itself. Since these humble beginnings Harveys has gone through a few changes as well as having our fair share of landmark moments...
Launched in 1882, and granted the Royal Warrant shortly after, Bristol Cream is crafted from a delicate blend of Jerez’s finest wines; delicate finos, aged amontillados, fragrant olorosos and the special Pedro Ximenez grape providing a silky, mellow smoothness. Known for its deep golden chestnutty and amber tones, the nose is full, fragrant, pungent and elegant all at once. On the palate Bristol Cream delivers a full bodied experience with rich yet mellow notes leaving a long lasting and velvety finish. A complete, balanced and surprising compendium of wine from Jerez, it’s best enjoyed chilled at 12°C in a wine glass or mix over ice with a slice of orange.
