Gold color. Aromas of golden and granny smith apples, walnut confection, spumoni, vanilla buttercream, clove, and dried mint and thyme with a velvety, crisp, fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length nougat, tiramisu, and caraway finish. A cocktail friendly apple brandy with a nice fruity, creamy style.

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.
