Brandy is an old world tradition--our European ancestors drank brandy after dinner for its soothing and warming qualities. Imagine settling in with a nice glass of warm brandy, while sitting by a fire with your favorite novel. Or try adding it to a warm glass of eggnog. Delicious! Catoctin Creek 1757® Virginia Brandy is Virginia's first commercial grape brandy since the establishment of the Commonwealth. Made from the finest locally-grown Virginia wine grapes, it is distilled and aged in premium French Bordeaux oak barrels for at least two years. Catoctin Creek Brandy is a fine sipping brandy unlike run-of-the-mill brandy on the shelves today. Try some, and you'll see. This is fine stuff that warms the heart.
