Duff Gordon El Cid Amontillado Sherry, 1 Litre

El Cíd was one of the many wines from Bodegas Duff Gordon, founded by James Duff from Scotland in 1768. He bought his wines from Haurie and took over some of his soleras after the bankrupcy of 1815. When Thomas Osborne arrived in the area in the 1770s, he became friends with Duff (British consul at that time) and his nephew William Gordon, who allowed him to store his first barrels in their bodegas, helping him to start his own business. After the death of both partners, Thomas Osborne became a partner at Duff Gordon while managing his own shipping business.
