The name brandy is a shortened form of Brandywine, which an anglicized form of Dutch brandewijn, which means "burnt wine". This is precisely what brandy is. To make brandy, wine is heated in a still until it separates into its components, which evaporate at various points on the temperature scale. The more volatile the component, the lower the temperature at which it evaporates, leaving behind the impurities and heavier compounds. This is the process used to turn wine into brandy. Produced in South Africa - one of the most prominent wine-producing countries in the Southern Hemisphere.
