The Outlaws are coming.

The Brandy Bunch is a group of outlaws spread across the World. They are the infamous cousins of Cognac and Armagnac, who were unfortunately never invited to the party. Perhaps Monsieur Cognac and Monsieur Armagnac believe they’re not playing in the same league or something? Well, without being too judgmental, this is how wars are started. Just saying. But we didn't stay true only to grape distillates, oh no... We have an assportiment of distillates from different fruits from all around the world that will make you crave for more and moreee!

OK, these 3 outlaws obviously want a piece of the action. Let’s hear them out, shall we.

From the sunny side of US and A comes Raspberry Brandy from St. George Distillery.
Next is a delicious Rakija, Dekada from Serbia.
And finally, under the Mt. Ararat in Armenia, comes Paron Ararat, the Brandy Stalin loved and shared with Churchill.
 
(a moment of silence…)
Please stand up and up with your glasses, your palate will be marked and remembered!

Cheers,
Flaviar
 
 Trivia & SmartAss Corner:
 
1) "Claret is the liquor for boys; Port for men; but he who aspires to be a hero must drink Brandy." – Samuel Johnson

2) Dutch traders introduced Brandy to Northern Europe in the 16th century. The origins of Brandy are clearly tied to the development of distillation when Arab alchemists experimented with distilling grapes to make medicinal Spirits. The word Brandy is derived from the Dutch word Brandewijn, which translates to “burnt wine.”
 
3) Initially wine was distilled as a preservation method and as a way to make the transportation easier. At first they just wanted to add the water back to the Brandy shortly before consumption, but because non-volatile substances such as pigments, sugars, and salts remained behind in the still, the taste of the distillate when diluted with water was very different to the source – Wine. Luckily they quickly abandoned the practice.
 
4) It is also thought that wine was originally distilled to Brandy to lessen the tax which was assessed by volume.
 
5) Some of the earliest thermometers — used in the 1600s  — contained Brandy. The liquor was eventually replaced with mercury due to the latter material's wider range of liquid-state temperature.
 
6) Legend holds that Augustine monks hung brandy barrels around the necks of St. Bernard rescue dogs to revive frostbitten pilgrims in the Swiss Alps.
