The Somerset distillery matures the brandy in small oak barrels in one of our two bonded warehouses at the other end of the village from Burrow Hill. In the bond, the barrels lose the 'angel share' and absorb all sorts of flavours from the oak. Our colour is natural and from the wood. Over time the brandies soften and mellow. Different oaks affect the character in different ways, so a tasting in the bond is exciting as it is always full of surprises.
Somerset Royal Brandy is bottled at 3 years old.
