Spanish Brandy

It's well-known that Spain has a long history of Wine production. But when the Moors brought distillation to their shores in the 700s, the game changed... and Spanish Brandy was born.

Much like Cognac, this Brandy can only be produced in a designated region—the Andalucian city of Jerez.

It's typically aged in Sherry casks using the same solera system as Sherry. Hey, if it ain't broke...
How is Spanish Brandy made?
These brandies are aged using the solera system. Barrels are arranged in a pyramid from oldest o youngest. To create a Brandy, master blenders take measures from different barrels and mix them together. Then they top the barrels off with younger Brandy.
Does Brandy go bad?
Brandy, unopened, does not go bad if kept away from heat and light. Once a bottle of Brandy is opened, it's got about 1 to 2 years left before noticeable degradation in flavor and quality.
 What is the difference between Cognac and Brandy?
All Cognac is Brandy, but not all Brandy is Cognac. Cognac must be produced in the Cognac region of France, while Brandy can be produced anywhere in the world.

Spanish Brandy
The Spaniards are second only to the people of the Cognac region in the quantity of Brandy they make, and they drink far more of their own Brandy than the French do Cognac.

Brandy comes from the Dutch word “brandewijn,” which literally translates to “burnt wine.” And it’s an accurate description — you distill wine by heating/burning it up in a still until the concentrated alcohol emerges.
Spanish Brandy
It is thought that wine was originally distilled to Brandy to lessen the tax which was assessed by volume.
