Ernest Hemingway We have left Ernest Hemingway until last, in honour of the special link he had with Botín and its owners. In his travels to Spain, Hemingway often visited Botín and formed a firm friendship with Emilio González, father and grandfather of the current owners. By way of an anecdote, he was particularly keen on learning how to make paella, although his skills in the kitchen were somewhat less than his talent with the typewriter.
