What it is:  Brandy
Brandy (from brandywine, derived from Dutch brandewijn—"burnt wine") is a spirit produced by distilling wine, the wine having first been produced by fermenting grapes.

While some brandies are aged in wooden casks, most are colored with caramel coloring to imitate the effect of such aging.
