Brandy: In the Winter Spirit
Evening Program with Tasting
Monday, December 12, 2016 - 6:45 p.m.
Nothing warms a December evening like brandy. Whether you're sipping it by the fire or enjoying it in a glass of your favorite eggnog, brandy gives an added glow to the holidays. The venerable distilled wine is produced and enjoyed the world over, with cognac from France leading the way, but other varieties include the German label Asbach, pisco from Peru, and even brandy made here in the Washington area.
Scott Harris is a distiller and brandy evangelist, as well as the man responsible for a new local spirit, Catoctin Creek’s 1757 Brandy from Loudoun County. Enjoy a lively evening as Harris explains production methods around the globe, offers expert tips for enjoying your brandy, and shares some of his favorite bottles.
