Distilled from a wonderful Catawba Wine produced in New York by a noted vintner there, we have had a number of visitors from Europe, including Germany, Belgium, Spain as well as France; all of whom have given our Brandy very high praise for its quality. Some have described its particular richness of aroma and flavor not unlike some very fine aged cognacs.
