Brandy is such a useful spirit, with such a storied history but a distorted market perception. Often misrepresented and poured into Christmas cake or quaffed with dry ginger, this drink has so much more to give. And cocktail bartenders know it.
Back in the pre-covid days, St Agnes assembled a who's who of Melbourne bartenders; Seb Costello & Lewis Halls of Bad Frankie, Brooke Hayman & Luke McCarthy of Whisky & Alement, Ev Liong of everywhere good, Michael Madrusan of The Everleigh & Heartbreaker - just to name a few and they put together this blend of 5-8yo Brandies and determined the final bottling strength to be 44.0%
Oak aged Australian spirit at 5-8yo in a 700ml format at 44.0% ABV offers unprededented value for money in the field. This stuff is wonderful, and well worthy of your contemplation.
