Founded by John Leacock, the firm combined its interest with Blandy’s and joined the Madeira Wine Association following the global economic recession of the 1920s. Today Leacock’s is one of the company’s flagship with Blandy’s, Cossart Gordon and Miles.
A wonderful dry madeira with rancho flavours and almond notes and still a great acidity.
John Leacock sailed to Madeira from the United Kingdom to become an apprentice at a Madeira firm in the 18th century. He then established his own Madeira firm, Leacock’s, in 1760 alongside John Patient, an old school friend. In 1925, following the global economic recession, both Leacock’s and Blandy’s combined their interests and joined the Madeira Wine Association, now known as the Madeira Wine Company. Today Leacock’s is one of the company’s flagship with Blandy’s, Cossart Gordon and Miles. View our selection.
