FAQs

How is brandy best enjoyed?

Brandy and Cognac are best served neat and at room temperature, as ice can dilute their bold tasting notes, and the cold can conceal their more nuanced flavours. Connoisseurs often recommend opting for a brandy snifter — a short-stem, wide-bellied glass that allows the flavour and aromatics to develop while encouraging you to cusp it with your palm to further warm its amber nectar.

For people wanting an accessible introduction, try adding the smallest drop of water into your Cognac and brandy that will mellow out its biting taste for a smoother drinking experience.

What are some types of brandy?

  • Cognac — Cognac is a PDO brandy best known for its premium positioning. It’s made from Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard grapes and is aged in oak barrels.

  • Rakija — This brandy is popular among the Greek and Balkan peninsulas and is made from distilled fruit such as plum, pear and raspberries and can even include honey varieties. It’s aged in oak casks to soften its heavy flavour profile and features an ABV of 40%.
  • Calvados — Calvados is a French apple brandy that features a 40% ABV and offers a versatile drinking experience that can be enjoyed neat, added to coffee or mixed into cocktails.

What do brandy and Cognac pair well with?
