Bottle shapes may change.  Taylor’s pioneering spirit never will.  Taylor’s 325th Anniversary Limited Edition Reserve Tawny Port presented in a special commemorative 75cl Onion Shaped bottle with the Traditional Taylor’s Glass Merchant’s Seal.  

 “Deep chestnut brown core encircled by a narrow brick rim. A rich figgy nose with a background of toffee and mocha, notes of plum and apricot , spicy hints of black pepper, nutmeg and fleeting scents of jasmine, all come together in a heady complex harmony. Dense and luscious on the palate, with a wonderful velvety smoothness. The mellow flavours of butterscotch and molasses merge with rich jammy red berry flavours, a perfect blend of youth and maturity” David Guimaraens, Head Winemaker.

Country Of Origin: Portugal

When Taylor’s pioneering founder Job Bearsley arrived in Portugal in 1692, his superb Ports were enjoyed in elegant, round bottles known as ‘onions’. Bearsley could not have known that, 325 years later, his firm would be the most famous shipper of Vintage Port, a leading producer of Aged Tawny and creator of the successful Late Bottled Vintage style.

This Tawny style of Port is fully matured in seasoned oak casks each holding about 630 litres of wine. Here, over many years of ageing in the firm’s cool and tranquil cellars (known as ‘lodges’) in Oporto on Portugal’s Atlantic coast, the wine gradually takes on its characteristic amber ‘tawny’ colour, slowly developing the complex mellow flavours and the smooth luscious palate which are the hallmarks of Tawny Port.

In their 325th year, as a tribute to their founder, Taylor’s is releasing a Limited Edition Reserve Tawny Port presented in a special commemorative bottle inspired by the ‘onion’ shape that graced the tables of Job Bearsley and those of his loyal customers.

To produce this exclusive limited edition blend, the winemakers have drawn on Taylor’s extensive reserves of old cask aged ports and selected individual component wines originally set aside for the company’s 10, 20, 30 and 40 Year Old Tawnies.

The bottle design is based on a unique late 17th century sealed bottle with the Taylor’s Merchant mark. The glass seals would bear the name of the owner, crest or other personalised symbol - a sign of wealth and status in the 17th – 19th century. Vintners and merchants used these glass seals to bear their commercial symbols. At that time, bottles were used primarily to convey wine from the Taverner’s cask to the table, in the same way we use a decanter today.
