Neversink Spirits Apple Brandy (Unaged)
Neversink Spirits // New York, USA
NeverSink Apple Brandy is distilled from New York State apples in Port Chester, New York. This unaged apple brandy is their first release; they do have plans for an aged version. It is bottled at 40% ABV. (Note: This is sold in 375ml sized bottles with your best bet at locating a bottle in New York State.)
Eau-de-VieMost often referring to clear, unaged brandy distilled from wine from any type of fruit. Some styles are macerated with skins after distillation which provide color.
"Though many fruit brandies are bottled without ageing, it's unusual to come across an unaged apple brandy. Neversink's first brandy is light in body and fragrance, but pleasantly rounded when sipped neat. The taste and aroma of crisp apple is subdued at first and most evident on its nicely lingering finish. It's a solid first offering that should pique interest in the distillery's future products."
