Barbadillo's first brand Pastora Divina' was launched in 1827 and was well received, setting the family on the path to success.

The family continued to acquire more Bodegas. Vitally, many of these occupied the first row' on the high town's ridge, at its apex, where the winds are not obstructed by other buildings. These superb locations and Barbadillo's winemaking skill meant that their reputation soared. Today's seventh winemaking generation own 12 Bodegas, housing 30,000 Sherry butts, many of which are fed with wines sourced from Palomino Fina grapes grown at the family's 500 hectare Gilbabin and San Luisa vineyards in the Jerez Superior.

These solid foundations have resulted in Barbadillo producing some of the world's most famous Sherry brands, including Muy Fina' and Solear'. The latter of which has received numerous awards, including selection as the “World's Best Manzanilla 2015" by Wine Spectator.

Inspired by the Ataman vermouths and tonic wines that have been aging for decades in the cellars of Bodegas Barbadillo. The Ataman brand was registered by Barbadillo in 1943. At times we ask ourselves what prompted Manuel Barbadillo to use the name of a Cossack general for this vermouth, but sadly we have no answer. What we do know is that this cavalier of old returns once more, full of life and character and of absinth, quassia tree bark, Seville orange, rosemary and elderberry.

Tasting Notes

Quite sweet and fairly fruity initially with orange notes until the bitterness kicks in pushing the sweetness into the background and delivering quite a drying, bitter punch with loads of quinine and wormwood in contrast to the sweet luscious texture. A fantastic sweet ying and bitter yang balance makes it very stylish - and moreish - with great length, and it is lovely chilled on its own or mixed in all sorts of drinks

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
