Summary

Summary

This is one of the most far-ranging guides to the brandies of the world ever published. It takes us to Cognac, where the finest brandies in the world are made--an area rich in magnificent brands like Martell and Courvoisier--and reveals the secrets of Cognac's unique prestige. Armagnac also has legions of devotees, although its brands are less well known, and Spain produces some superb brandies, as does Italy, whose fashionable grappas are described here. Faith also visits the distilleries of Greece, Cyprus, South Africa, Israel, Mexico, and Armenia. The histories of the brands, their techniques, and their tastes are all expertly described by one of the world's leading writers on spirits. Award-winning journalist and wine expert, Nicolas Faith is Editorial Director of France's premier wine magazine, L'Amateur de Bordeaux. He is also the author of the acclaimed The Winemasters of Bordeaux.
