Korbel 12 Year Old


Korbel 12 Year Old Brandy is the distillery's oldest and most premium expression, blended from brandies aged between 12 and 17 years in American oak. It undergoes a final distillation in a copper-lined still, meant to pay homage to Francis Korbel's original methods back in the late 19th century. It's a very good sipping brandy, garnering quite a few critical accolades.

Founded by Francis Korbel in Northern California's Russian River Valley in 1882, Korbel began as a winery producing sparkling wines in the style of classic French champagne. Seven years later, they began distilling brandy, and have been a household name ever since.
