Californian Brandy with a soul of Cognac.

Back in 1982, two interesting characters decided to found a distillery. One year before, rancher and former Berkeley professor Ansley J. Coale, Californian through and through, gave a lift to Hubert Germain-Robin from Cognac, France, who was hitchhiking along the Highway 101. They clicked immediately and moved to Coale's farmland outside of Ukiah in Mendocino County. Now, Hubert wasn't just a random resident of Cognac — he came from a family that had been making Cognac for ages, so he knew a thing or two about it. It didn't take long for Germain-Robin to become a blockbuster. Their Brandy even enthralled the sitting US President, Ronald Reagan, who brought barrels of it to the White House. He served Germain-Robin to Gorbachev and Mitterrand, and even at Bill Clinton's inaugural ball.

Germain-Robin Brandy is exquisite and quite rare since only ten barrels are produced every year. The majority of the juice comes from Pinot Noir, and it spends on average 17 years in Limousin oak barrels. Its character is woody, fruity and warming, which makes it wonderful as an after-dinner tipple.
