Amber color. Elegant, fruity aromas and flavors of perfectly ripe red apples, cherry candies, toffee, buttery pastry, yuzu marmalade, and ripe melon with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, intricate, long finish that presents nuances of sage, ground pepper, and ginger finish. Bright, sophisticated aromas beckon the imbiber in for a sip of this peppery apple brandy; great for complex for cocktails.

Fruit Brandy is the default term for all Brandies that are made from fermenting fruit other than grapes. Fruit Brandies, except those made from berries, are generally distilled from fruit wines. Berries tend to lack enough sugar to make a wine with sufficient alcohol for proper distillation, and thus are soaked (macerated) in high-proof spirit to extract their flavor and aroma. The extract is then distilled once at a low proof.
