Amathus Drinks is now the exclusive distributor of Sherry producer Bodegas Argüeso for the UK market.

Bodegas Argüeso was founded in 1822 in coastal Sanlucar de Barrameda, one of the three great towns of the Sherry triangle and the home of Manzanilla. They work with old vineyards in the highly regarded coastal Miraflores sector to produce a range of award-winning Sherries in all the major styles.

Recently, Argüeso have benefited from substantial investment allowing them to upgrade the cellars and take the quality of their wines to a new level. This has included the installation of a team of in-house coopers to maintain and improve the quality of their hundreds of mature barrels.

Amathus has worked closely with the winery to develop the inaugural release of the “Argüeso 1822” range, which delivers a superb selection of older wines and smart, modern packaging to the market for the first time. This represents an uplift in quality from the standard range of Argüeso sherries.

The first Amathus shipment also includes the Manzanilla San Léon, winner of the 2017 IWC Trophy for Best Manzanilla.

Amathus Drinks’ Head of Wine, Jeremy Lithgow MW said: “It has been a real pleasure working closely with Bodegas Argüeso to select, blend and develop this range. Argüeso are a 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”.
