Brandy is a distilled liquor that is produced from wine. Most Brandys are made from grapes, although other fruits such as apples, pears or plums can also be used.

  • How is brandy made?

    The brandy-making process begins with the fermentation of fruit juice, which becomes wine. This wine is then distilled to separate the alcohol from the water and other components. Distillation can be done in copper pot stills or other specialized equipment and is conducted in several stages to achieve the desired concentration of alcohol and flavors. Once distilled, the brandy undergoes an aging process in oak barrels, where it acquires its distinctive flavor and character. During this time, the brandy interacts with the wood, giving it notes of vanilla, caramel, spices, and other complex flavors. The aging period varies depending on the type of brandy and local regulations and can range from a few years to several decades.


    What flavors does the brandy have?

    Brandy is characterized by its wide range of flavors, which can include notes of ripe fruit such as plums, raisins, apricots, and apples, as well as undertones of spices, chocolate, vanilla, and nuts. These flavors and aromas can be enjoyed in different brandy styles, such as grape brandy (such as Cognac and Armagnac), apple brandy (such as Calvados), and other fruit brandies.


    How to taste brandy?

    Brandy can be enjoyed neat, served in a suitable glass, to appreciate its flavor and aroma, or used as an ingredient in a wide variety of classic cocktails such as the Brandy Sour, Sidecar or Brandy Alexander. Its versatility and richness of flavors make it a popular choice for both moments of relaxation and special occasions.


  • What types of brandy are there?

    There are several types of brandy.

    Brandy de Jerez: Produced in the Jerez de la Frontera region of Spain, this brandy is made using the traditional soleras and criaderas method, similar to that used in sherry production. It is known for its rich and complex flavor.

    Grape brandy: It is made using different varieties of grapes, such as white grapes or muscatel grapes. Each grape variety brings distinctive characteristics to the brandy, such as fruit aromas and flavors.

    Fruit Brandy: Brandies are produced from different fruits, such as apples, pears, cherries, or plums. These brandies tend to have intense and sweet flavors and are used as liqueurs or in the preparation of cocktails.

    Brandy V.O. (Very Old): Brandy has been aged for an extended period. However, it is important to note that the term "V.O." It does not have a standard definition and its usage may vary by manufacturer or region.

    Brandy X.O. (Extra Old): Brandy has been aged for an even longer period than "V.O." (Very Old).
     
    These are just a few examples of brandies. Each type of brandy has its unique characteristics in terms of flavor, origin, and production method, allowing for a wide variety of options in the world of brandy.
