It doesn’t get more Wiscaaahnsin than visiting a supper club or corner bar and ordering a Brandy Old Fashioned. Perhaps that’s why Wisconsinites represent brandy’s largest fan base, consuming a third of all brandy produced in the United States.
Our love for the distilled spirit goes back to our German heritage. Our ancestors were accustomed to drinking brandy made from European grapes, and when they emigrated to the states, well, bye bye brandy. Knowing our penchant for the sweet stuff, three brothers from California decided to debut their brandy at the World’s Fair in Chicago in 1893.
Wisconsinites loved the juice so much, we’ve been drinking it for over a hundred years. But, it’s time we have a brandy to call our own. DW Brandy is 40% alcohol and 100% Wisconsin by volume. No state deserves its own brandy quite like Wisconsin. After all, we’re our own best customers.
