Distillery Posts: Adjusting to Proof with Old, Understrength Brandy

Just before bottling, we often have to slightly dilute a brandy so it’s at the same proof as we say on the label, which has already been printed. So we create and use aged faibles, slightly understrength brandies, of various ages (one is almost 30 years old) so the dilution is with something congruent, in fact adds a tiny complexity.
