First introduced in 1975, E&J VS is our flagship brand and America's most preferred brandy. Popular because it tastes great, mixes well and offers consistent, award-winning quality. Distilled and aged to showcase the elegance of a fine California brandy, E&J VS has flavors of sweet dried fruit and varietal French Colombard, Folle Blanche, St. Emilion and early Barbera wine grapes, balanced beautifully with subtle notes of toasted brown spice and vanilla. E&J VS Brandy is soft and light-bodied with a crisp, clean finish. So good, our E&J VS wins gold medal honors and best of show awards at prestigious international spirits competitions, year after year.
