Arab legacy

Unlike the traditional stills used to distil most alcoholic beverages, such as whisky, rum or gin, the best quality Brandy de Jerez is distilled in Moorish pot stills. Brought to Spain in the 7th century by the Arabs who occupied the country for several hundred years, the alquitara was used to distil wine to obtain alcohol for medical and cosmetic purposes. It is the oldest known distillation method.
