Brandy (from brandywine, derived from Dutch brandewijn—"burnt wine")[1] is a spirit produced by distilling wine, the wine having first been produced by fermenting grapes. Brandy generally contains 35%–60% alcohol by volume and is typically taken as an after-dinner drink. While some brandies are aged in wooden casks, most are coloured with caramel colouring to imitate the effect of such aging.[citation needed]

Brandy can also be made from fermented fruit (i.e., other than grapes) and from pomace.[2]
