Golden amber color. Aromas of heirloom apples, hibiscus, sweet cherry, and nougat with a round, vibrant, fruity medium body and a warming, involved, long honey on crepes and peach preserve finish. An upstanding apple brandy with layers of flavor that evolve on the palate.

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.
