Rich amber color. Fruity aromas of baked peaches, mango coulis, creme anglaise, and honeyed prunes with a round, fruity medium body and a cheery apricot fruit and nut bar, sesame seed, and cinnamon tea finish. An easy drinking brandy for Wisconsin-style old fashioneds.

Grape Brandy is Brandy distilled from fermented grape juice or crushed but not pressed grape pulp and skin. This spirit is aged in wooden casks (usually oak) which colors it, mellows the palate, and adds additional aromas and flavors.
