During the 16th century a Dutch shipmaker used heat to concentrate wine to make it easier to transport, his idea was to reconstitute it with water when he arrived at his destination. What he ultimately discovered, was that the heated wine tasted very good. The concentrated wine was called burnt wine or brandewijn in Dutch. Today, Brandy is enjoyed around the world.
