Brandy liquor is a spirit made from the juice or pulp and skin of fruit, most commonly grapes. This simple definition has established brandy as the ultimate after-dinner drink. Browse our selection of brandy liquor and discover its appeal for yourself.
How to enjoy your brandy: The more a brandy has been aged, the smoother it will be. You can put it over ice, but generally, it is best appreciated when served at room temperature in a glass. Much like wine, brandy is showcased when served in a specialized glass. This specific shape helps the flavors to open up as the brandy breathes. Without a stem, the glass is surrounded by the hand, gently warming the brandy and releasing its full aroma and palate. Alternatively, brandy can be chilled before serving, which serves to thicken it and make it feel smoother in your throat.
Because brandy liquor is related to wine, it doesn’t pair well with tonics and sodas, but it can make very tasty mixed drinks. It mixes well with citrus juices, such as, orange, lemon, lime; as well as schnapps, vermouth and triple sec. Fair warning--at an average of 40-60 percent alcohol content, brandy can make a drink that looks and tastes innocent, but is actually very potent.
