The road form wine to brandy is a long one, with many stages and stops; many are the countries claiming the paternity of the name.
The term is believed to derive from Old German “brand” meaning “fire”, thence the Dutch “brsnde wijn” which means “burned or distilled wine”. “Brandy” should thus be the contraction of the Dutch term.
However, one should not forget that in the old Piedmontese dialect acquavitae was called “branda”, a term used to indicate the roar of fire.
