Keo Brandy is mellow, smooth, soft flavour and rich aroma, qualities inherited from the grape variety and the ageing in oak.
Its name derives from a historical banquet, hosted by Mayor Henry Pickard held in London in 1363. The guests, the Kings of England, France, Scotland, Denmark and Cyprus were treated with a brandy, brought over especially for the occasion from the Troodos mountain range in Cyprus. Five Kings is produced from the same noble vines as that of the grand toast. Double distillation of the Xynisteri wine, in pot stills at KEO. The heart of the distillate with the upright alcoholic content is stored in oak barrels. The distillates are then left to age, controlled by experts to develop the perfect composition and ingredients. The transformation into this uniquely golden brandy, is gradually achieved, while the brandy ages in French Limousin oak barrels, stored at KEO’s isothermic cellars.
