Ideal for the modern day adventurer. “Claret is the liquor for boys; port, for men; but he who aspires to be a hero must drink brandy.” Samuel Johnson.
Certainly the Aromanauts of the Dutch East India Company could not have been faint hearted to attempt their long voyages along the spice route, Brandies possibly helped a lot to keep the spirits up. Not surprisingly, Van der Hum, the famous Cape “Brandewijn Liqueur” was invented at The Cape of Good Hope refreshment station circa the 17th century.
