Bentwing is a blend of French brandy made in the Chenin Blanc style blended with a subtle floral brandy distilled from a blend of varietals grown in California. The brandy is then finished in American whiskey barrels to lend a rich vanilla and caramel flavor to the already nuanced complexity found in the brandy.
Bentwing Brandy is a release from Hangar 1, which is based in Alameda, California. The brandy itself is a blend of both French and California brandies, the latter of which is made from a grape grown in Northern California. After blending, the brandy is finished in charred whiskey barrels. This is the first non-vodka offering from Hangar 1. The brandy’s name is after the Bentwing Bird: gull-wing aircrafts used during WWII.
