The brandy industry does not subscribe to many strict standards, though some brandies rely on only fruit for their characteristic sweetness — most commonly grapes, apples, cherries and peaches — whereas others may employ additional sweeteners. In general, a sip of brandy starts with a strong alcoholic flavor followed by a mellow, fruity dessert-wine sweetness alongside notes of oak and vanilla from the aging process.
Brandy-makers can experiment with any number of fermented fruits as their base, but the most common brandy flavors include peach, apricot, cherry, plum, pear and apple — some popular U.S. brands, specifically Paul Masson, produce a line of brandies with trendy fruit flavors like pineapples, mango and red berry.
Brandy flavoring is similar to vanilla extract in that a small amount goes a long way in a recipe depending on the quality of your product; look for natural and plant-based flavorings that create the signature oak and caramel notes of aged, high-quality brandy.
