Grape brandy must be aged in oak for two years or longer. The aging of brandy is a delicate and sensitive process – sadly, a process with no short-cuts.Copper and Kings has been fortunate enough to partner with some outstanding distillers, who have been kind and generous enough to share some of their precious pure pot still aged stock. They took this stock, blended it and continued to age it in bourbon barrels and some new American oak to create their own distinctive, unique American brandy. Continuing to blend aged brandy backwards into "new make" at their distillery in Butchertown in a variation of the “Solera" system, ensures that the DNA style of their original brandy is maintained through the years and the maturation cycles. Their grape brandies use the classic brandy varietals, including: Muscat De Alexandrie, Chenin Blanc and Colombard. They batch distill exclusively in copper pot stills, and the brandies are non-chill filtered and unadulterated by boisé (powdered oak, shavings or infusion) other flavors, sugar or caramel color. Some cloudiness may be apparent at colder temperatures. Brandies are matured in Kentucky bourbon barrels, with support from medium-char new American white oak barrels for balance, complexity and a polished, velvety finish. Their signature “Immature” Brandy (grape brandy aged for less than 2 years is defined as Eau De Vie or “Immature” Brandy - we find the Immature brandy description fitting, and understandable) is double-distilled Muscat brandy, with gorgeous texture, mouth-feel and a complexity of flavor very unusual for un-aged spirits. 90 Proof with structure and heft to ladder cocktails or enjoy on the rocks.
