Snackshot Of The Day: Cognac

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of cognac. Cognac is a type of brandy that gets its name from the town in France where it is produced. There are many characteristics in the production of brandy that are specific only to cognac. It is typically made with the ugni blanc grape, distilled twice in copper pot stills, then aged a minimum of two years in French oak barrels.
