Chattooga Belle is a 138 acre farm/restaurant/distillery located in scenic South Carolina. They specialize in brandies made from their apple orchards and vineyards. After the fruits are distilled (in this case, apples and muscadine grapes), the Camp Fire is charcoal-filtered and then aged in ex-Jack Daniels whiskey barrels along with white oak chips.

    Produced in the US, this is usually referring to brandy distilled from grape-based wine. If the producer uses other fruit, it must be stated on the label. If aged under two years in oak, it must state the word "immature" on the label. Beyond that, labels such as VS, VSOP, and XO mean little as the brands themselves dictate what that means to them.

Tasting Notes

"The spirits first impression is sooty, but not in a completely unattractive way. Once the immediate smoke dissipates, sweeter flavors of apple fruit, vanilla, and mesquite barbecue show up. This then leads to a finish that is quite sweet showing more of the charcoal’s sappiness and less of its roastedness. A somewhat interesting brandy but ultimately a bit simple and could use a bit more potency. "
