Founded in 1877 by brothers-in-law Sir Andrew Williams and Arthur Humbert, Bodegas Williams & Humbert has been considered one of the world's most prestigious wine and spirits producers for more than 140 years. Located in Jerez de la Frontera, the heart of sherry production, Bodegas Williams & Humbert has vineyards spanning more than 1200 acres. Bodegas Williams & Humbert utilizes the solera method, one of the most traditional method of ageing where small amounts of younger wines are systematically blended with more mature wines over a period of time.
Paola Medina, Technical Director & Winemaker at Bodegas Williams & Humbert, belongs to the second generation of the Medina family, owners of leading Jerez winery Bodegas Williams & Humbert. The Dos Maderas Rums undergo their final ageing process in sherry casks at Bodegas Williams & Humbert. A passionate trail blazer, she has a degree in chemistry from the University of Granada, in enology from the University of Cadiz and a master’s degree in viticulture, enology and legislation form the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
Dos Maderas, meaning "Two Woods", is a combination of Guyanese and Bajon rums aged in New American Oak barrels in their respective production countries. After five years, the rums journey across the Atlantic Ocean to Jerez, where they are blended together. The combination of the light bouquet and sweetness of the Barbadian rum combined with the robust body of the Guyanese rum creates the perfect base for all Dos Maderas rums. In the next stage, the rum is further aged and finished in Spain in 20 to 30-year-old Williams & Humbert Solera Sherry casks.
The Bodegas Williams & Humbert portfolio also includes spirits such as Gran Duque D’Alba Brandies, Crema D’Alba, and Dos Maderas Rums.
