This is a 1950 magazine advertisement for Harvey's Bristol Dry Sherry.
John Harvey & Sons was a wine merchant, started by John Harvey in Bristol, England in 1796, and specializing in importing Spanish and Portuguese wines. Sherry is a fortified wine made from white grapes that are grown near the town of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain. Sherry is produced in a variety of dry styles made primarily from the Palomino grape, ranging from light versions similar to white table wines, to darker and heavier versions that have been allowed to oxidise as they age in barrel. The Harvey's Bristol brand is now owned and produced by the American company Beam Inc.
