Q.

All cognac is brandy, but, as the French will remind you, not all brandy is cognac. Please tell cognac is made from the juice of which fruit?

The first beverage in the line, Aliz Gold Passion, was created in 1984 by Marie-Claude and Jean Paul Lafragette as a blend of French cognac, passion fruit juice, and other exotic fruit juices

It is made from grapes. It must be made from at least 90% Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche or Colombard grapes. The remainder may consist of the grape varieties Folignan, Juranon blanc, Meslier St-Franois, Montils and Smillon. However, most cognac is made from Ugni Blanc grapes only. It must be distilled twice in copper pot stills and aged at least two years in French oak barrels that are sealed airtight in order to be called cognac.

The best brandies (e.g., cognac) are made from grape juice.
