Jerez de la Frontera, in western Andalusia, is not lacking in excellent souvenir shops. Offering everything from the world-famous local sherry to beautiful hand-painted ceramics, these are the places to come if you’re looking for a gift or momento to take home. Read on for our pick of the best souvenir shops in this beautiful Spanish city.
Jerez is famous the world over for its sherries, so a great way to remember your visit here is to take home a bottle of the local tipple. One of the best wine and sherry shops in the city centre – just off the Plaza del Arenal, the old town’s main square – is Licores Corredera, which offers a comprehensive selection of local produce at hard-to-beat prices. And if you’re not sure what to choose, you can taste before you buy.
With stores all over the world, Flying Tiger Copenhagen could hardly be said to be authentically Jerezano. Nevertheless, this is a fun and friendly place to browse for jokey presents that range from toys and board games to spices and wacky household gadgets. The Jerez outlet is well appointed on one of the city’s main pedestrian streets, and staff are praised for being friendly and helpful.
With many aficionados maintaining that Jerez is the true home of flamenco (especially the Santiago neighbourhood), why not treat yourself to a momento related to this captivating art form? Located in the heart of the city, Tamara Flamenco Danza is used by flamenco professionals and sells everything from shoes and trajes de gitanas (“gypsy dresses”, as flamenco dresses are called in Spanish) to shawls and fans.
Fancy a personalised badge to remember your time in Jerez? Then head to El Lobo López, a funky brand with an outlet in the San Miguel barrio (one of Jerez’s two flamenco neighbourhoods). To design your own chapa from scratch, bearing the words and the design you want, simply head to its trendy shop and workshop and tell the staff what you have in mind. The brand also sells its own wine.
La Casa del Jerez is one of the best places in the city to pick up a bottle of the local tipple. Well-arranged in a beautifully traditional interior are wines from all over the Cádiz province, sherries from Jerez (this is the only place on the planet where sherry can be made) and manzanillas from Sanlúcar, another of the three ‘Sherry Triangle‘ cities. To guide you in your purchase, the charming and knowledgeable owner is always on hand.
As its name suggests, Cerámica Amaya is a goldmine of the pretty ceramics that adorn the façades of so many houses in southern Spain. Located about a ten-minute stroll out of the monumental centre of Jerez, it’s where to head if you want to bring a touch of Andalusia to your own home, offering everything from terracota pots to handpainted bowls, plates and jugs. Competitive prices make it even more of a must-visit.
Located a short walk from the lively Plaza Plateros, Artesanía Viva is a colourful grotto packed full of Andalusian-themed goodies. It’s the kind of shop that’s virtually impossible to leave without buying more than you came in for: its packed shelves offer everything from hand-painted ceramics and decorative tiles to leather goods and jewellery, all at great prices. A superb general-purpose souvenir store.
