The origin of our brand begins in 1730 with Bodegas Fundador, the oldest bodega in the Marco de Jerez region.
The family’s relationship with Spanish Royalty left its mark on the bodega through the signatures of H.M. King Fernando VII, H.M. King Alfonso XIII, H.M. Queen Victoria Eugenia and Don Juan de Borbon on our casks.
The history of Brandy in the world cannot be understood without knowing the history of Fundador.
It was in the Bodega de la Luz where the first Brandy produced in Spain was born, hence its name: Fundador.
Since its beginnings, Fundador has been a reference Brandy de Jerez brand in Spain. Its quality has always made it stand out from other drinks during brandy’s period of greatest popularity.
The collection of Fundador brandies has been growing over the years with new products, consolidating our leadership as a reference company for Brandy de Jerez and positioning us as the leading Brandy producer in the world.
In our own distillery, we control the entire distillation process of holandas and spirits, which will age through the Criaderas and Solera system typical of the Marco de Jerez. An art perfected thanks to more than 300 years of experience.
