One of the main features in the manufacture of the Meretny Brandy is the use of barrels in which the sherry was withstanding, each of which has a capacity of less than 1000 liters, most often it is a barrel for 500-600 liters. During the time the sherry was kept in barrels, they were impregnated with them and absorbed a part of his substances, which are then moving into the Jersey Brandy.
If in these barrels used to be stored dry sherry Finno pale-golden color, then the brandy will be light color, and if there was kept tool, semi-sweet sherry of a darker color, then brandy will be darker. If, in barrels was Jerez Crim or Pedro Jimenez, then the brandy will be even darker and slightly sweet enough.
System System Creemae
This is the same system that is used for ripening of serebs. It consists of a series of barrels laid horizontally into several rows, one over the other. The salker is called a series of barrels, which lies directly on the floor, the barrels of the second row are called the second salker, the barrels of the third row of the third salker and T.D.
When the brandy is bottled, part of the contents of each saline is extracted. In the system of Solera Creemaider, no one of the barrels never devour. As a result of this operation, which is called "SACA" (seizure), all the contents of the barrels are mixed together and bottled. The amount that was withdrawn from the barrels saline is replaced by the same amount of brandy from the barrels of the first cereder, which is over the salker. This operation is called "Rocio".
Thus, it turns out that each of the barrels in the 1st cryader is nominically empty, and the amount is replaced by the brandy from the second cry and so on, and finally the latest creech is filled with young brandy from another saline.
Every time the operations "Saca" and "Rocio" are produced – this is called "Change levels".
