Korbel releases its first brandy in more than a decade

Korbel releases its first brandy in more than a decade

Korbel Brandy is excited to introduce Korbel 12, a limited-edition California brandy of extraordinary character. The first new Korbel Brandy in more than a decade, Korbel 12 draws on a 124-year heritage of brandy excellence to achieve the ultimate in richness, smoothness and complexity.

When Francis Korbel constructed his first brandy still inside a brick tower at Korbel Champagne Cellars in 1889, he made the foundation of Korbel Brandy—in the grapes, in the distillation, in the barrel and in the blending. Quality continues to be Korbel Brandy’s foundation and the very best of those production elements went into Korbel 12. Made with premium grapes, this handcrafted brandy was distilled in a copper-lined still (similar to the one Francis used), aged for a minimum of 12 years in hand-coopered Appalachian oak barrels and blended from individually selected barrels to be the finest brandy possible.

Korbel 12 showcases concentrated yet seamlessly integrated fruit, vanilla, cedar and spice aromas and flavors. The rich, sophisticated character is complemented by exceptional smoothness making it perfect for savoring “neat” and wonderful in mixed drinks. Korbel 12’s packaging is as stylish and elegant as the brandy itself; a tall, square-shouldered bottle bearing a gold-embossed black label and medallion. Just 1,800 six-bottle cases of Korbel 12 California Brandy were produced for this inaugural release. It is available in select markets at a suggested retail of $39.99.

Korbel has produced award-winning California brandy since 1889. Unique among United States producers, Korbel maintains complete control of its brandy production process from grape to bottle. Korbel 12 joins three other brandies in the Korbel portfolio: rich, flavorful Korbel California Brandy, complex, sumptuous Korbel V.S.O.P Gold Reserve and unique Korbel XS, which blends Madagascar vanilla, natural orange essence, spices and pure cane sugar for a one-of-a-kind taste.
