Our apple brandy is our take on the famous apple brandies of Calvados, France. We used a blend of local, organic apples including Braeburn, gala, fuji, and granny smith. This fruit from Courtland, CA in the Sacramento delta region provides a breadth of character to our brandy.
Harvest fresh apple notes with flavors of salted caramel, cherry, vanilla, and leather. It is truly a dessert experience for the palate.
Green and Hemly Orchards in Courtland, CA provided the blend of Braeburn, gala, fuji, and
granny smith apples. The apple mash was fermented on the skins and flesh of the apples providing for a more intense apple flavor. Moreover, the fermentation continued for an extended time to allow for the development of greater complexity before distillation. We created a smooth sippable, spirit and then
aged it in toasted French oak barrels – the same barrels used in France for aging cognac.
