Brandy gets its name from the Dutch word brandewijin, or burnt wine. Dutch traders, in the 17th-century, used to distil wine to preserve it during transport. Brandy is distilled by cooking wine, which causes the alcohol to condense while the water burns off and evaporates. The alcohol liquefies as it cools leaving brandy. Blackberry Brandy is made from grapes and blackberries. Blackberry brandy is a popular aperitif and used to, as a flavoring, in desserts and sauces.
