Beam Global UK plans to launch a range of "very old rare sherry" (VORS) under its Harveys label.

The company said on Friday (4 April) that the Harveys VORS line up will contain four sherries, "Fine Old Amontillado, Palo Cortado, Rich Old Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez" which will roll out to specialist on and off-trade outlets this month.

The sherries, which launch in packaging with the 'H' logo and the brand name varnished onto the closure, have been aged for 30 years. "Fine Old Amontillado, Palo Cortado and Rich Old Oloroso were previously VOS sherries, made from wines with an average age of 20 years," the company said.

Harveys' master blender and newly appointed Caballeros, Beltran Domecq said: "We are thrilled to be launching this range of exquisite VORS sherries. They are packaged in 50cl bottles as they are rich wines which are designed to be consumed in small quantities. The smaller bottles will ensure the sherry stays fresh once opened and make the price point of these expensive wines more attractive."

Harveys marketing manager, Rosie Kent added: "The new VORS range will reinvigorate the premium sherry category. It will appeal to more discerning sherry drinkers who are looking to trade up and enjoy some intense, older wines."

Harveys' VORS range will be available in 50cl bottles retailing at GBP19.95 (US$39.68) each.
