Brandy is a distillate of fermented fruit, most commonly grape
wine. This doesn't mean that any leftover wine is
distilled; in fact, the wine used for premium brandy will be sour and undrinkable. Just like fine wine, the location of the vineyard defines the quality of the brandy, which is also affected by the distillation methods and ageing process.
The main brandy styles are cognac and armagnac from France, grappa from Italy and pisco from South America. Cognac is the best known of these, and has to follow very tightly prescribed production processes, which has ensured a consistently high quality, making it the 'King of Brandy'. The quality of cognac is generally classified by age, with VS requiring that the youngest component is at least two years old, VSOP four years and XO six years.
Remy Martin, dressed in its sleek black bottle, epitomises the appeal of cognac - seductive, rich and complex, it's an ideal finish to any meal. Remy Martin uses brandy from the chalky Grande and Petit Champagne regions north of Bordeaux, which benefit from longer ageing and result in a brandy with great finesse and length.
