E & J // California, USA
E&J distillers is owned by the Ernest and Julio Gallo winery, a family-owned winery founded in 1933. E&J XO brandy is their oldest brandy expression, having been aged at least 6 years in oak barrels before being bottled at 40% ABV.
American BrandyProduced in the US, this is usually referring to brandy distilled from grape-based wine. If the producer uses other fruit, it must be stated on the label. If aged under two years in oak, it must state the word "immature" on the label. Beyond that, labels such as VS, VSOP, and XO mean little as the brands themselves dictate what that means to them.
