This spirit is produced by distilling fruit. The word brandy derives from the Dutch brandewijn, meaning 'burnt wine."
Brandies generally contain 35%–60% alcohol by volume. Some are aged in wooden casks, some are tinted with caramel colouring to imitate aging, and other are produced using a combination of both.
Any brandy XO and higher is meant to be sipped on its own, unmixed and undiluted.
