The Deluxe Cream Capataz Andres is very much the “crème de la crème” of Cream Sherries. Rich and sweet with notes of figs, prunes, walnuts and cinnamon. It is long and lingering on the palate. Serve slightly chilled in the summer or at room temperature during the winter months.

Emilio Lustau, one of Spain's greatest Sherry bodegas, is named after Don Emilio Lustau Ortega, son-in-law of founder Don José Ruiz-Berdejo y Veyan. Don José, of French descent, founded the family firm in 1896 at his home in Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza, but in the 1940s Don Emilio moved the firm to the Santiago district. The firm saw significant expansion, and joined the ranks of the top Sherry producers under Don Emilio's name. The family home was never abandoned, though, and in the 1970s extensive cellars were constructed there.
