About Clear Brandy

Serve in a Copita
Clear brandy is a category that encompasses unaged grape brandies that do not fit in well-known classifications such as eau-de-vie, pisco, or slivovitz. These are often regional specialties like Rakia or Singani with a fruity character that is not diluted by wood aging. Most of these are meant for cocktails, like Pisco Sours, but the finest can be served neat.
Top Picks for Clear Brandy
Singani 63
Clear color. Bright, fruity, floral aromas of orange blossoms, peach and papaya, tropical citrus, and tapioca with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-long potpourri, pistachio oil, and minerals finish with soft tannins and no oak. A fantastically fragrant and delicious unaged brandy for all applications.
