Lairds Applejack 750ml (USA)
The oldest native American spirit – older than bourbon. Laird’s Applejack is 35% apple brandy and 65% neutral spirits. It takes 6 pounds (2.7kg) of apples to make one bottle. The apples are grown mainly in Virginia. Natural fermentation is employed – no yeast is added. It is then distilled, then water added and aged 4 – 6 years.
Laird’s Applejack makes a wonderful spirit base for cocktails and is used in several iconic classics including the Jack Rose and Stone Fence. It also makes an excellent Old Fashioned with maple syrup and chocolate bitters and it’s superbly refreshing in a highball with home-made ginger beer and lime.
