Brandy must be aged for 2 years in oak or longer. The aging of brandy is a delicate and sensitive process – a process with no short-cuts.
Accelerated aging techniques, such as small barrels, heavy char barrels or high heat in a shipping container are not effective for brandy maturation. The distillate is too delicate and lacks the robustness of grain-based distillate to stand up to the intensity of that process. You stroke brandy into shape. You don’t muscle it in to shape.
We Have Been Fortunate Enough To Partner With Some Outstanding Distillers, Who Have Been Kind And Generous Enough To Share Some Of Their Precious Pure Potstill Aged Stock With Us.
We Have Taken This Stock, Blended It And Continued To Age It In Barrels To Create Our Own Distinctive, Unique American Brandy. We call this our “DNA Base” – American Brandy With Copper & Kings DNA And Personality. Something We Are Proud To Call Our Own. We do this for both apple and grape brandy.
Annually we take the barrels down and in a “solera” type process we re-blend the old distillate back into the new-make at varying % levels – in this way we try and manage consistency over time and smooth out the kinks in supply until we get closer to 100% Copper & Kings distilled spirit.
