The most recent addition to the Sánchez Romate family, Cardenal Mendoza Angelus was created by the Bodega’s foreman who wanted to transmit the fragrance of the orange blossom that engulfed the Bodega’s patio every spring. This was the essence which, mixed with the aromas of the sherry wines and brandies maturing in the Bodega, was what the foreman felt epitomized the Bodega’s home, Jerez de la Frontera. He got to work to try and capture this link to the city through the combination of aromas and tastes in a new spirit.

The foreman begun by adding the bitter orange and sweet orange peel from the oranges that covered the Bodega’s patio and other natural components to the famous brandy already being produced. After much positive feedback from those who tried his new creation he responded by declaring that he was simply collecting the “angelical features of the Cardenal (brandy).”

The maceration of the natural ingredients and the distillation process take place in a prestigious old distillery founded in 1824 and famed for its traditional Bain-Marie process.

Cardenal Mendoza Angêlus is a liqueur based around Sherry Brandy, with Seville oranges, lemons, cardamom and clove. The most exclusive part of Cardenal Mendoza, the Angels’ share, takes on a new dimension in the form of a liqueur. Angêlus is a liqueur based around our classic Sherry Brandy.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Colour

    Bright mahogany in colour with glinting amber highlights.
  • Nose

    On the nose it has fresh, intricate citrus and spiced notes which evoke sweet, tangy aromas of dried fruits.
  • Palate

    The palate offers an explosion of citrus notes, with lots of orangey bitterness from the bitter oranges, a sophisticated hint of spice and a slight toasted note, all balanced by some sweetness.
  • Finish

    The finish is seemingly endless.


As an authentic Sherry Brandy or Brandy de Jerez, Cardenal Mendoza is made from a selection of spirits between 36 and 45 degrees, obtained from the distillation of wine and aged in the traditional system of Criaderas & Solera. The collection of casks for Cardenal Mendoza, previously seasoned with Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry wines, make up one of the largest wineries for Solera Gran Reserva brandy: it ensures the age and quality of our brandy.

Our Sherry Brandy is the result of more than 200 years of passion, craftsmanship and experience in brandy production. The collection is just a small example of our tradition and legacy in the ageing of Brandy de Jerez. Fifty Pounds Gin is our name not our price! The result is a London Dry Gin that spans the centuries and allows us the liberty to describe Fifty Pounds Gin as historic in essence, modern in spirit.
