I'm a big cigar fan, this doesn't really mean that I'm considered an expert but over the years I have had my fair share of good and bad cigars. I figured let's put together a brandy and cigar pairing with my top 5 cigars for 2020.
It's usually a difficult topic for a distillery to talk about. But as the years pass we understood one thing very clearly: We are really good at making Grape Brandy, and more specifically barreled aged expressions.
In this second series, we will be talking a little more technical approach give you a little more details and pulling the curtain on what we do behind the scenes to create our award-winning Brandy!
Distilling Grape Brandy is unlike any of the other spirits, not only you are bound to the same agriculture discussions as a winery but due to the high cost of farming, limited availability as grapes (they are harvested once a year) and percent of fermentable sugars it becomes a very interesting proposition for a distillery that wants to exclusively use grapes as part of their product line.
