Lithuanian Brandy: Stumbras Gloria & Victoria Brandy

The term ‘brandy’ originates from the Dutch language. In the Middle Ages, Dutch merchants used to generate spirit through distillation, which they used to call brandevijn, which means the ‘burned wine’. Later, when the technology was taken over by neighbour countries, people started calling the drink ‘brandy’.

The genuine brandy is the drink produced of grape spirit and diluted with distilled water. Grapes determine the quality of brandy. Strange though it may seem, but the most acclaimed experts of brandy claim that one cannot make good brandy of the vintage used to make the best wine. This is because the best brandy is produced of the grapes used to make sour and rough wine.

The second factor determining the quality of brandy is storage of the drink in oak barrels. Flavour and taste of the drink reflects the kind of oak barrels are made from, its age and the time of storage.

Lovers of brandy recommend taking the drink bit by bit, in small quantities. Usually, a glass of brandy is taken after lunch or at the end of dinner.
