Win an $18k Gold Goblet & Trip for Two to Spain from Cardenal Mendoza

Febres said photo entries must be posted via the website or through social media using the hashtag #CopaMendoza.

In addition to the gold goblet and trip for two to Jerez, Spain, three additional prizes will be awarded to the photo that garners the most votes in September, October and November. In each of these months, one person will win a bottle of a very rare, limited edition brandy Non Plus Ultra, a 50-year old Cardenal Mendoza with only 800 bottles produced per year from 38 casks. Each bottle is valued at $600 each.

The golden cup, Copa Mendoza, is currently being crafted by a local Jerez artisan. It is fashioned from 22 carat gold weighs just over a half pound and measures 4.3 inches by 3.14 inches. The actual value of the cup will be determined by the market price on the day the cup is presented to the winner.

Cardenal Mendoza is among the finest of the Spanish brandies, aged for an average of 15 to 50 years using the solera system: a process for aging the brandy by fractional blending in a way that the finished product is a mixture of ages, with the average age gradually increasing as the process continues over many years.

Recognized worldwide for its distinguished taste and unique packaging, the brandies are available in four expressions, Cardenal Mendoza Clasico, Cardenal Mendoza “Carta Real”, Cardenal Mendoza “Non Plus Ultra” and the recently introduced Cardenal Mendoza “Angelus.”
