Brandy, derived from the Dutch word brandewijn meaning “burnt wine”, is an alcoholic beverage that is distilled from fermented mashed fruit or wine. Majority of countries that produce wine also produce brandies. The meaning of burnt wine comes from the additive of heat during the distillation process. Most of the time, the fruit used to create this spirit is grapes, but there are several brandies on the market based from pears, apples, cherries, and other sweet fruits. Like many of liquors, each country has their own name for the brandy they produce: The Italians have Grappa, Normandy calls their spirit Calvados, and the people of Hungary named theirs Palinka. To make things even more confusing (we are trying to make things simple here!) the French produce their own type of brandy: Cognac. Although cognac is considered its own type of spirit, it technically isn’t. But we aren’t very technical here so it’s okay! Both are distilled from fruits but Cognac comes from certain regions and we’ll get into that at another time.
