Among the many lessons we have learned over the past six years is the patience required at every stage of production for apple brandy.
First, collecting and pressing apples. Then a four-week ferment, slower than any other spirit requires. Next, a slow and gentle distillation in order to preserve the delicate apple aromatics. Then, like our whiskies and rum, we store the brandy in oak casks and let it age for several years. Finally, as we have learned the hard way, patiently bringing the brandy to bottle proof over several months to avoid disrupting the fragile flavors and temperamental structure that we have painstakingly cultivated.
Our greatest challenge to maintaining apple brandy on our shelf is this slow proofing period. Well that period is now over, for the time being. We have a very limited supply of our Fruition Apple Brandy, distilled from Bitterroot Valley-grown Macintosh apples, back in stock. These bottles are available only for Coin Club members for the next week!
Not only are these bottles available exclusively to our Coin Club, but they are available at the Coin Club price of $33.50 ($37 retail) for 750mL.
We will release the remaining bottles to the public on January 15.
