Senator PLAYFORD (South AustraliaMinister of Defence) . - I sincerely hope that the Committee will not agree to the amendment. The word "blended," unless it be associated with the word " wine," will convey to the public that the brandy is made of a blend of spirits distilled from two or more entirely different substances. What we wish to indicate is that the brandy is at least pure wine spirit. If we do not retain the word " wine " the public will conceive that the brandy is made partly, at any rate, of molasses, potato, or some other spirit mixed with wine spirit. Our object is to insure that the brandy shall be known to the public as distilled wholly from the juice of the grape.
