About the Class

The difference between Cognac and Armagnac? Imagine a length of velvet and another of silk fabric. Stroke them. The velvet has a deep, rich texture. That is an Armagnac. The silk is pure finesse, and that, to me, is a Cognac - Salvatore Calabrese.

Brandy in simpler terms is a liquor that is distilled from wine made from fruit, usually grapes. But can also be distilled from the wine of other fruits like pears or apples. Multiple types of brandy that exist and even if you know nothing about brandy, you've probably heard of the most famous one of all. Cognac is a brandy that is made from specific grapes produced only in the Cognac region of France. All Cognacs are brandy but not all brandies are Cognac.

This course reviews the legal standards of brandy Cognac and Armagnac, and other brandies, accompanied by their history, production methods, terminology, flavor profiles, popular brands, and how to pair them with various foods. Whether enjoying this course personally for pure enjoyment, or in the hospitality industry and you need further understanding for career purposes; we’ll explain all about Brandy, clearly and concisely. No more guessing. This course will bring any novice to an expert, in an amazingly short amount of time.

Warning: This course gets technical at times. I have tried to be as detailed as possible. Some reviews have stated the course is too technical at times, but I think better to give too much info than not enough.
