The National Glass Museum of La Granja (Segovia, central Spain) will exclusively produce the brandy bottle for the oldest vintage Jerez, sold by Bodegas Tradition, the only Jerez winery dedicated solely to wines of over twenty years old. In a communique, the institution reported that the 40-year-old “Tradition Platinum Solera Gran Reserva” will be packaged in a square base collectable bottle developed by master glassmakers at the Royal Glass Factory and inspired by eighteenth century models. The collaboration between Bodegas Tradition and the Royal Glass Factory has been driven by the decision of the institution to go beyond the reproduction of historical items and to launch new lines aimed at creating new sectors (such as catering and interior design, amongst others). The 70-cl capacity bottle of Platinum Solera Gran Reserva is part of a limited production of 500 numbered items, whose design and detailing will change periodically with the aim of making it a cult object for collectors. The purchaser of the brandy receives a certificate detailing the development process of both the bottle and its contents. Individuals can purchase the Tradition Platinum Solera Gran Reserva directly from the Bodegas Tradition premises at a retail price of EUR 180 a bottle. The National Glass Museum of La Granja, established in 1727, is dedicated to the promotion, development, education, research and dissemination of the craft and history of glass manufacturing and other artistic, cultural and scientific activities related to the art and craft of glass.
