In the 18th century, the Torres family bought their first vineyard in the Penedès region. A century later, in 1870, the House of Torres, producer and exporter of wines was founded by Jaime Torres Vendrell. It was at this time that great works. The Casa Milá, known as “La Pedrera”, currently owned by Fundació Catalunya, is the most representative building of that intensively creative period of modernism in Barcelona. In homage to the figure of Gaudí and of the innovative spirit of those men whose philosophy of a “job well done” was passed from father to son, the House of Torres created this old noblesse brandy which carries the founder’s name. The Jaime I brandy has been made with very old ‘soleras’ aged from selected distilled white wines. Some of the soleras started off as distilled Parellada wines destined for our Torres 10 brandy, and which have been kept aside for many years to create a valuable reserve stock. These old reserves have been enriched with our best soleras, the oldest being 30 years old.
