I, too, saw Nick's listing of these two varieties and wonder if Brandy is
the same as Brandywine. My farm is on a branch of the Brandywine River; the
Brandywine (river valley) is a sub region of SE PA and Delaware and so
intuitively I have a hard time making the jump to seeing the name being the
same as a type of spirit. BUT it's probably as close as I'll get.
