Chattooga Belle Cinnamon Stick Brandy
Chattooga Belle // South Carolina, USA
Ready for a cinnamon-forward spirit made on a craft level? The Cinnamon Stick brandy starts with apples and Muscadine grapes grown on Chattooga Belle’s 138 acre farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains. These are distilled on the property and then infused with cinnamon in a barrel before bottling in a classic jug.
Other BrandyBrandy distilled from any type of fruit-based wine produced anywhere in the world. Not referring to any of the designated or protected areas such as Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados, etc.
"Cinnamon bursts out of the glass when this concoction is poured. On further inspection the apple distillate adds some nice orchard fruit flavors and a kiss of wood for an impression of applesauce or even apple pie. The Muscadine grape is completely dominated by the other components. Unfortunately, the palate comes off a bit thin with very little fruit complexity and then finishes with a blast of spicy-sweet cinnamon kick."
