BROTHERS IN BRANDY

E&J’s roots stem back to the Gallo family tree. Ernest and Julio Gallo, two brothers with a passion for brandy and 30+ years experience crafting fine wine, decided to bring a little bit of California magic to the brandy game. After five years of testing and tasting in their Fresno distillery, the duo finally came across E&J’s signature smooth process used to this day. Aged for two years in oak barrels, E&J Brandy officially launched in 1975, becoming an instant classic.

1980s

BECOMING AMERICA’S BEST SELLING BRANDY

With an extra smooth taste, unique packaging and advertising in major publications from the New Yorker to Sports Illustrated, E&J quickly became a favorite for brandy lovers. In 1983, E&J earned the title of America’s best selling brandy, and has since become one of the most popular American brandies in the world.

1990s

NEW TO THE CREW

Following the success of our VS drop, the E&J family grew to include our iconic VSOP, ultra premium XO, limited edition Cask and Cream, and limited edition White Brandy. Our flavors weren’t the only thing boomin in the 90s. E&J became a staple of the rap scene, being dropped into lyrics by some of the most iconic rappers of the decade.

2000s

XO EARNS SOME LOVE

E&J XO launches in the US, becoming one of our most premium brandies. But that wasn’t the only E&J earning praise in the 2000s. E&J Single Vintage, Patriarch and Cognac all were limited releases that fans ask for by name.

2010s

FLAVOR RUNS DEEP

E&J added some flavor to the lineup with our latest members, Apple, Peach and Vanilla. To top off our fresh additions, we collaborated with streetwear designers, innovators and entertainers to develop a new line of E&J gear for our fans.
