Organic Brandy is made from certified organic grapes or fruits, in our case, organic grapes from one of the most northern wineries in Perth's Swan Valley Region.
The name brandy comes from a dutch name Brandewijn, meaning burnt wine, not that we burn the wine but boil the fine wine so the alcohol is boiled off and collected as organic brandy spirit.
Brandy is brown or straw in colour as the alcohol acts as a solvent on the wood of the oak casks, extracting flavour and colour from the French oak casks. Some distillers add sugar and caramel to increase the palate and colour of the spirit. At Harris Organic we add nothing besides rain water to our finished organic brandy spirits.
The craft of making a special brandy is something to be celebrated and appreciated. This is available to any knowledgeable person not just a few.
Our organic brandy is truly sustainable as it is double-distilled using a wood-fired pot still. There are commercial stills that are wood fired, but there use is waining with the availability of gas burners.
This hand-made V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale) style brandy is evocative of the Brandys made at Cognac in France before natural gas was found in the north sea.
Once the organic brandy spirit has been collected it is placed in small oak casks in the underground cellar to mature for a minimum of three years (our bottles are labelled with the distillation and the bottling dates).
The organic alcohol content is reduced to 40 percent alcohol by adding only rainwater.
This brandy has complex characters that include caramel, toffee, notes of orange, vanilla, smoky spice and cloves. The current release organic brandy is not a blend of organic Brandys, but a single vintage. Order your organic brandy from our Organic Brandy Shop .
We first used this organic brandy in our organic Christmas Cake and Pudding last year. We use only organic ingredients so it was great to be able to have organic brandy for the first
We had to taste test it first. Deliciously smooth. Now we're enjoying it as a warming winter drink. Highly recommend it. And the cake and pud tasted delicious too.
Natural brandy is boise free, non chill filtered and caramel free. All our brandies are Boise free, non chill filtered and caramel free. what is boise, you ask. Boise is pieces of oak soaked in water and added to the brandy to give colour and flavour.

A review by Simon.
I have tasted your product and I have also tasted normal commercial V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale) brandy, and I really like the taste of yours. Prompt delivery of your products is also very good, in view that it is shipped from Australia to Hongkong. On the packaging I notice it has the chop "Security Screened". I guess that is because the description is only "personal" to avoid import custom issue, so the staff and custom department do not know what it is. I think it shouldn't affect its taste much.
For two years running our 8 year old organic brandy has been awarded a bronze medal at the Royal Perth spirits awards, for 2019 and 2020. This make this organic brandy the best brandy in Australia that is classed as certified organic. The best Australian made brandy made from organic grapes is made in Perth.
