Pale gold color. Aromas and flavors of popcorn, green apple, hints of pumpkin spice cheesecake, and mint with a supple, bright, dry light body and a seamless, intriguing, breezy finish evoking notes of cracked pepper and baking spices. A delicate Fruit Brandy with hints of baking spices; an easy intro to barrel-aged spirits.

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.
