About this title


This is one of the most far-ranging guides to the brandies of the world ever published. It takes us to Cognac, where the finest brandies in the world are made—an area rich in magnificent brands like Martell and Courvoisier—and reveals the secrets of Cognac's unique prestige. Armagnac also has legions of devotees, although its brands are less well known, and Spain produces some superb brandies, as does Italy, whose fashionable grappas are described here. Faith also visits the distilleries of Greece, Cyprus, South Africa, Israel, Mexico, and Armenia. The histories of the brands, their techniques, and their tastes are all expertly described by one of the world's leading writers on spirits. Award-winning journalist and wine expert, Nicolas Faith is Editorial Director of France's premier wine magazine, L'Amateur de Bordeaux. He is also the author of the acclaimed The Winemasters of Bordeaux.

From Booklist:

Nicholas Faith offers Classic Brandy, a tour of the world's most aristocratic liquor. Like gin, brandy arose in the Netherlands; it was known as "burnt wine," a reference to its distillation from fermented grape juice. More popular than ever due to its modern association with plutocracy and cigar smoking, brandy has transcended its humble beginnings and ubiquitous appearance in cartoons hanging from the neck of rescue dogs. French brandies, cognac and armagnac, carry the most cachet, but Spanish and Greek brandies have loyal followings, too. And Italy's grappa shouldn't be dismissed despite its penchant for bottles that outshine the spirits within them. Mark Knoblauch
