The No. 1 Manzanilla from Spain
The La Guita estate was founded in 1852 by Domingo Pérez Marín and owes its name to the founder’s habit. He was famous for selling his sherry for cash only, so every buyer had to show his “guita” (slang term for cash, literally “twine”) to present their order. The historical background to the brand name is kept alive by the piece of twine between the cap and the label. La Guita is a delicate, dry sherry (Manzanilla) produced solely in the fishing town of Sanlucar. Its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and its westerly winds make this wine unique. The No. 1 sherry in Spain is famous for its freshness and so every bottle bears the individual bottling date on the back label.
