In Cadiz, April the 25th 1645, Juan de Wynt and Sweerts (Knight of the Calatrava Order) and Margarita de Lila Blanco, both of Flemish-origin, were dedicated to the maritime trading between Spain and America. With their union, one of the best Sea Carrier Companies was built.

Juan de Wynt and Carlos de Lila and Van Thune (Margarita’s father), belonged to one of the families from Diest (Duchy of Brabante), where the Wynts had the Dolincohen Castle, and due to the religious wars back in the times of Alexandre de Farnesio, he was forced to defect to Yprés city.

Through this company, they trade a great deal of liquors from the traditional distilleries that existed in the Guadalquivir Valley back then.
