Detailed background data
It has been assumed that the food processing industry is located in Spain. Sherry is fortified wine, where wine is added little amounts of distilled spirit from grapes, raising the alcohol content. We do not have data for the pure distilled spirit around 95% alcohol, so we model sherry as a mixture of wine plus brandy, which is distilled wine. We have calculated the mixture (73% wine, 27% brandy) so that the final product has the right alcohol content of 15.9% alcohol by weight according to the FRIDA database (DTU 2019). Since brandy has 32% kg alcohol/kg instead of 95%, the necessary mass of brandy in the sherry mixture is higher than if the actual spirit was modelled. Retail is modelled assuming the following storage: Ambient. See more details as well as literature references in the methodoly report on: www.denstoreklimadatabase.dk.
Data on inputs and outputs of the food processing industry is modelled using: No specific sources for sherry. See comments field.
