A liquor distilled from wine (such as armagnac) or other fermented fruit juice (such as the apple-based calvados). Brandies are aged in wood, which contributes flavor and color. The finest of all brandies is cognac. The name “brandy” comes from the Dutch brandewijn, meaning “burned (distilled) wine.”
