DITRE di Mag Cafè

La parola brandy deriva dall’abbreviazione dell’inglese brandywine, a sua volta tradotto dall’olandese brandewijn, cioè vino bruciato (distillato). Gli olandesi nel XVII° secolo erano i più attivi mercanti di vini e di spirits e si rifornivano lungo le coste atlantiche, dalla Francia al Portogallo, per esportarli in Inghilterra e in tutto il Nord Europa. Le prime testimonianze letterarie del termine risalgono al 1622: nella commedia inglese Beggar’s Bush attribuita a John Fletcher si leggono le parole “Buy brand wine”.

The word brandy derives from the English abbreviation of brandywine, in turn translated from the Dutch “brandewijn”, meaning burned wine (distilled). The Dutch in the seventeenth century were the most active merchants of wines and spirits and sourced along the Atlantic coasts, from France to Portugal, to export them to England and throughout Northern Europe. The first literary testimonies of the term date back to 1622: in the English comedy Beggar’s Bush attributed to John Fletcher one reads the words “Buy brand wine”
