discover Brandy

Our Brandy selection consists of fine liquids from both Armagnac and Cognac. Armagnac is an artisanal product, crafted in small quantities, distilled in pure copper stills, and aged in oak barrels from the local Gascony, Limousin or world renowned Tronçais Forests in Auvergne. Cognac - Armagnac's more famous, younger, double-distilled cousin - comes from the Charentais, a large area of western France situated immediately north of Bordeaux.

Brandy Producers

Similarly to Champagne, the Brandy world is more varied than one might realise. Cognac is dominated by big names like Rémy Martin, Hennessy and Courvoisier, whereas Armagnac by contrast - and due to the artisanal nature of the product - is generally considered to be a more delicate and refined venture with liquids finely crafted rather than manufactured.

Appellations of Brandy

The most famous incarnations of Brandy are undoubtedly Armagnac and Cognac. They both take their names from the historic towns where they are produced and are known the world over. But Brandy is also produced in a variety of other locations including America, Greece, Italy, South Africa, South America, Turkey and Jerez.

Grape Varieties of Brandy

It is well known that Brandy is a spirit made from distilling wine - and wine, of course - is made from grapes. However, anything that will ferment can be distilled and turned into a Brandy. Grapes, apples, blackberries, sugar cane, honey, milk, rice, wheat, corn, potatoes, and rye are all commonly fermented and distilled. French brandies are typically made from the Ugni Blanc, Colombard, Folle Blanche and Baco Blanc grapes.
