Notes

Our brandy is crafted like a fine aged whiskey. The song Brandy was recorded in 1972 by a band named Looking Glass. The songwriter, Elliott Lurie, was the band’s lead singer and guitarist. The Red Hot Chili Peppers covered the song on the 2004 album, Live In Hyde Park. You will see the label design has us viewing Brandy the mermaid through a looking glass. This is a play on the name of the band. The lyrics are a romantically evocative story and the melody is a total ear worm. It has always reminded me of life in Westport “back in the day.” To capitalize on the song’s content each bottle of You’re A Fine Girl will have a silver bracelet with a charm. We hope guests will collect a myriad of the charms like they do the floats. There's a port on a western bay And it serves a hundred ships a day Lonely sailors pass the time away And talk about their homes And there's a girl in this harbor town And she works layin' whiskey down They say, Brandy, fetch another round She serves them whiskey and wine The sailors say, "Brandy, you're a fine girl" (you're a fine girl) "What a good wife you would be" (such a fine girl) "Yeah, your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea" Brandy wears a braided chain Made of finest silver from the North of Spain A locket that bears the name Of the man that Brandy loved He came on a summer's day Bringin' gifts from far away But he made it clear he couldn't stay No harbor was his home The sailors say, "Brandy, you're a fine girl" (you're a fine girl) "What a good wife you would be" (such a fine girl) "But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea" Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes When he told his sailor stories She could feel the ocean fall and rise She saw its ragin' glory But he had always told the truth, Lord, he was an honest man And Brandy does her best to understand At night when the bars close down Brandy walks through a silent town And loves a man who's not around She still can hear him say She hears him say, "Brandy, you're a fine girl" (you're a fine girl) "What a good wife you would be" (such a fine girl) "But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea" It is, yes it is He said, "Brandy, you're a fine girl" (you're a fine girl) "What a good wife you would be" (such a fine girl) "But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea"
