Germain-Robin Brandy has been made from California-grown Colombard grapes and offers unique flavour and characteristics of California Pinot Noir grapes.

Both drinks have been distilled in Pruhlo Charentais Pot Stills and aged in air-dried Limousin Oak Barrels.

The releases will come with a re-designed package, while the brand’s bespoke Redwood icon will feature on each bottle.

Commenting on the re-release, Gallo Spirits VP and general manager Britt West said: “Gallo is standing on the shoulders of giants, seeking to uphold the unwavering pursuit of perfection in brandy making. There is no greater giant than the Redwood tree and no greater California brandy than Germain-Robin”

Germain-Robin’s co-founder Hubert Germain-Robin and Gallo’s master distiller David Warter worked together for the relaunch of the signature brandies.

Warter said: “Learning from Hubert himself, a master distiller and blender who changed the way brandy is perceived around the world, and whose family history with brandy dates back centuries, was exceptional.

“Hubert and I have a shared vision that is very simple: to make the best brandy possible, perhaps even the best brandy in the world.”
