A blended brandy. Its unique base is apple brandy versus rye, corn, etc. It retains a hint of the delicate aroma and flavor of the tree-ripened apples from which it is made. For this reason, AppleJack, imparts this delightful flavor and aroma to mixed drinks, punches, and food recipes.
|The process to make Applejack is started at the peak ofthe apple harvest, in early September. This insures the quality and sweetness of the apples are at their peak. Applejack production utilizes a huge volume of fresh apples each year. It takes 7,000 pounds of apples to produce one fifty gallon barrel of Apple Brandy. As a result, Laird & Company uses several millions of pounds of apples every year. Translated into ”consumer size” packaging, a 750ml bottle of Laird’s 100 proof Brandy contains twenty pounds of apples!
