Top 10 award-winning brandies

Expressions from Distell and the Yerevan Brandy Company made our list of top brandies

Brandies from France and Germany staved off tariffs earlier this year, a hopeful sign for a traditional category that promises great things in the future thanks to dedicated producers.

Last month, we hosted our Brandy Masters blind-tasting competition to evaluate the quality of some of the bottles on the market.

The competition was held via Zoom to comply with lockdown measures in the UK. Melita Kiely, editor of The Spirits Business and chair of the tasting, was joined by Ivan Dixon, independent spirit consultant, to judge the brandies.

Wine Sorted decanted the samples and labelled them anonymously, shipping them to our judges’ homes.

From French brandies to South African bottlings, our tasting showcased a high level of quality across regions and age statements.
