Other brandy styles
Brandy is a versatile spirit that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, whether it's sipped neat or used as a base for cocktails. There are also many other types of brandy from around the world. For example, Italian brandy is often made from the grape pomace left over from wine production, while South African brandy is made from a blend of grape varieties. Brandy can be used in a wide range of cocktails, from classic drinks like the Sidecar and the Brandy Alexander to more modern creations. Many bartenders also use brandy as a substitute for other spirits in cocktails, such as whiskey or gin.
