Brandy Vs Cognac – What is the Difference

Brandy, a distilled spirit made from fruit, is the generic name for this fine, fiery style of drink. Cognac comes under the umbrella of brandy, but it is just one of the many variations of it out there.  Here’s what you need to know about the world of brandy and its most famous, well-loved version: cognac.

Just as wine comes from specific regions around the world, so do various styles of brandy. The ingredients may vary and the distillation or ageing processes may differ from region to region, but if the result a spirit distilled from wine made with fruit, then wherever it comes from, it’s a brandy. Usually bottled at around 40% alcohol, brandy is traditionally drunk after dinner, with desserts, cheese, and, if you’re feeling dapper, cigars.

Cognac on the other hand is in a specific region of France following specific rules to guarantee its quality.  The Cognac region is in western France, north of Bordeaux, with one border on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

There’s also a hierarchy of quality for Cognac, including:

  • V.S., “Very Special” or “Three Star” Cognac, in which the youngest brandy is at least two years.
  • V.S.O.P., “Very Special Old Pale” or “Reserve,” with a minimum age of four years.
  • X.O., “Extra Old” or “Napoleon,” with a minimum age of ten years.
  • Hors d’Age is used to indicate even older and more premium releases.

Presented in a stylish black lidded box.  Finished with a hand tied red satin ribbon and personalised gift message.
