No. Due to methods of production our Sherry is not suitable for Vegans.
We recommend you store your Sherry in a fridge and keep the bottle upright. Harveys Bristol Cream is at the perfect serving temperature when the label turns blue!
We recommend you consume Harveys Bristol Cream sherry within 1 year from purchase and within 2 months of opening. Once opened, please store in the fridge.
Our recommendation is to consume within 2 months of opening if stored in the fridge.
A Fino or Manzanilla sherry can be kept sealed for up to a year and once open, keeps for up to one week if stored in a fridge. Our VORS range has no expiration date if kept sealed but should be consumed within 3 months of opening.
Back in 1796 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. Since the early 1970s, all of the production and blending of our sherry is now done in Jerez Spain. Harvey’s vineyards are situated in the picturesque region of Jerez in southern Spain where the local winegrowers cultivate a selection of grapes.
A Solera system is a collection of barrels, traditionally stacked (with the bottom row containing the oldest vintage), for the purpose of fractional blending across vintages. All our Sherries are aged for an absolute minimum of three years in American oak barrels, known as ‘botas’ around Jerez. No Solera is ever emptied completely, so each sherry will contain a small proportion of wine from when the Solera was first established.
Yes. We added the Solera Sherry wording to our label in 2018 to better reflect the process we use to produce our Sherry. The recipe you have loved and enjoyed for years has not changed.
The recipe you have known and loved has not changed but like other alcohol product, over time the product can change through a number of external factors. We recommend you consume our sherry within a year of purchase and within 2 months of opening as beyond this point factors such as temperature changes, movement of liquid and exposure to the air can all impact the taste of the sherry. We want you to experience the sherry at its very best.
It's always tricky when trying to give a valuation on products because like most collectables, if you find the right buyer we are sure you could sell the bottle for a reasonable price. However if you feel you have a bottle of relative rarity and significance, then our best advice would be to contact an independent auction house for a valuation.
