Brandy Making Workshop - Distilling Process (France)
Brandy is made by a simple process of distillation of wine. It is created in a still to leave the water and remove the alcoholic vapour which condenses back into liquid form as it cools.
Step in making of brandy
Fermentation of Juice
Fermentation of Juice
The process of making brandy starts with the fermentation of fruit/grape juices. The wine is allowed to ferment in huge vats for three to five weeks producing a sour high-acid wine with low alcohol content
Red Wine Fermentation
Wine with an alcoholic strength of 8-12% v/v and high acidity is boiled in a pot still. The alcoholic vapours, water and numerous aromatic compounds rise upward and are collected in a condenser where they become liquid again. This distillation process is carried out twice.
The distillation of brandy.
Brandy must be then placed in oak casks and allowed to age. As the brandy ages, it absorbs flavors from the oak while its own structure softens, becoming less astringent. Through evaporation, brandy will lose about 1% of its alcohol per year.
