Brandy is a form of distilled grape-wine, but it can be made from other fruits. It often has caramel colouring. It is made in many countries of the world. Cognac is brandy that is made in specific geographic regions, i.e. the Cognac and Gascony ('Armagnac') regions of France. See Related Links below ads.
