Bardinet is named after Paul Bardinet who took un-aged distilled sugar cane spirit called “fire water” at the time and aged it in oak casks in 1857.
Brandy is traditionally made from grapes but sometimes other fruit are also used. The word Brandy comes from brandywine which is a form of the Dutch “brandewijn” which translates to “burnt wine”. For the production of Brandy, wine is heated until individual ingredients are dissolved at different temperatures. More volatile ingredients are dissolved at lower temperatures in order to separate the light from the heavy components. After completion of this procedure the result is wine brandy.
Just as wine and whiskey, Brandy is usually stored in oak barrels. In this phase the complexity and the hue of the spirit is developed. The development of Brandy can be partly due to the excessive customs and excise taxes. Back in the day taxes were paid by volume. Wine was distilled down to as little as possible which meant merchants paid less taxes as volumes were less and it was also easier to transport the concentrated product and once reaching its destination could be expanded with water.
