Brandy

DSC_0023

In a previous post about wine tours I mentioned that one of the unique things about the Tishbi winery is that it makes a fine brandy, 40% alcohol, aged 12 years in oak barrels giving it “a beautifully golden rich and smooth experience of oak and vanilla overtones, blended with delicate floral and hazelnut scents”. Tishbi does this by distilling its own wine from the finest Columbard grapes in a 1912 Remy Martin original charentais alembic (a fancy way to say a melon-shaped distilling apparatus), a contraption that looks right out of Willy Wonka.
