Glossary of Terms

Brandy, a term derived from Brandywine (which is Dutch for 'burnt wine') is a spirit which is produced by distilling wine. There are three main types of brandy; grape brandy (from fermented grapes), fruit brandy (commonly apples, apricots, peaches, plums or berries) and Pomace brandy (from fermented grape seeds, skins and seeds). Brandy is commonly served as an after dinner drink, neat in a stemmed wide bowl snifter glass and gently warmed to release its aromas. Brandy can also be served on the rocks or used in cocktails such as the Sidecar or Brandy Sour.
