Event description

Description

Brandy, which comes from the Dutch ‘Brandewijn’ – literally, ‘burnt wine’ – has been with us as long as there have been stills in which to distil it. For centuries – before there was rum, and certainly before whisky crawled out from under the peat bogging it down – brandy was the preferred spirit in Europe and its nations’ colonies.

Most famously, of course, there is Cognac, dominated by four major international brands, and, less famously, Armagnac, but pretty much any region that produces wine, whether made from grapes or other fruit, also produces brandy of some sort.

This tasting will explore a couple of brandies from countries with long-established wine-making traditions (the Republic of South Africa and Spain), as well as Cognac – a V.S., two V.S.O.P.s, and a Napoléon (XO) – and an Armagnac.

Please note that the following list of brandies to be poured has not been finalised and may change, in which case this posting will be updated; an image will be added when the pour list is finalised:

  • Withington Voorkamer Pot Still Brandy ($69.96)
  • Torres 20 Superior Brandy Hors d’Age ($69.96)
  • Godet Cognac Cuvée V.S. ($54.96)
  • Rémy Martin V.S.O.P. Fine Champagne Cognac ($70.96)
  • Hennessy V.S.O.P. Cognac ($79.96)
  • François Voyer Grande Champagne Napoléon Cognac ($96.96)
  • Armagnac Castarede X.O. 20 Ans d’Age ($90.96)

Light snacks will be provided. Please arrange for sober transport.

The tasting starts at 7:30 p.m sharp; doors will open 10 minutes prior.

As with all our events, we request that you refrain from the use of fragrances on the evening of the tasting.

Additional samples will not be provided to attendees either before or after the tasting.
