 brandy 

A LIQUOR distilled from wine (such as ARMAGNAC) or other fermented fruit juice (such as the apple-based CALVADOS). Brandies are aged in wood, which contributes flavor and color. The finest of all brandies is COGNAC. The name "brandy" comes from the Dutch brandewijn , meaning "burned (distilled) wine."
