XECO, the next generation sherry, has partnered with Sekforde,
the first and only mixers designed to complement specific spirits,
to produce the XECO Spritz!
SPARKLING FINO SHERRY SPRITZ
Fino • Prickly Pear • Fig • Cardamom
A twist on an Andalusian classic: an elegant and easy-going blend of crisp XECO Fino sherry and Sekforde’s original sparkling flavours of prickly pear, sun-ripened fig and cardamom.
The XECO Fino Spritz delivers an understated honeyed sweetness, while cardamom layers a hint of spiciness, perfect for late summer sipping.

SPARKLING AMONTILLADO SHERRY SPRITZ

The toffee-orange spritz of dreams: caramel and brioche notes in XECO ‘Monti’ (as it is affectionately called) have been given a refreshing twist with Sekforde’s sparkling blend of Sicilian orange, rosemary and aromatic bitters to make an autumn crowd-pleaser.
4-pk £11.96 RRP
Carbonated Mixed Alcohol Beverages • Always serve chilled • Spritzes are 25% XECO Fino / Amontillado
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
XECO Founders Polly, Alexa and Beanie
XECO is the brain-child of three 30-something 'fino fiends' who have long shared a love of fine sherry - and a frustration that this love wasn't shared by their friends. The solution? Find better friends (kidding!) OR - find a way to bring a ‘Next Generation’ sherry to their friends and the world, finally giving this marvellous drink some long overdue recognition. With 30 combined years of experience in the drinks industry, the trio share more than just a love of this wonderful Spanish wine - they also have a deep understanding of how it’s made and of the wonderful traditions upon which it is built. In early 2016 they set out to create a new brand of Sherry to put a contemporary edge on an age-old product, and in doing so help to dispel some of the myths around the category, while encouraging a new generation of discerning drinkers to give Sherry a second look. To do so, they teamed up with a magnificent Spanish Sherry house ('bodega') that has been producing Sherry wines since 1876. So, although the name may be new, the wines have a long and distinguished lineage.
Sekforde Founder Talula White
Given the skill and craft that goes into their creation, when she thought about it, mixing with standard soft drinks seemed madness. Why have we never created mixers specifically tailored for mixing?
So, in her kitchen on Sekforde Street, she dreamed up Sekforde mixers - created for mixing and tailored around the spirits themselves in every aspect. Flavour, strength or flavour, sugar level.
Sekforde’s mission is to unlock spirits, bringing you a new way to discover and enjoy them.
