Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 3, 2012

Torres Jaime I is produced in the Penedès region of Spain by Miguel Torres.

The final piece of the puzzle (so to speak) was the addition of a small amount of aged 1972 eau-de-vie of Folle Blanche lees (which is normally used to produce high-quality pot-still brandy).
