Peach Street Peach Brandy
Peach Street Distillers // Colorado, USA
The peaches used in this brandy are only a “2 minute forklift ride” away from Peach Street Distillers in Palisade, Colorado. These freshly-picked peaches are fermented in open air and distilled only once before double-aging: first in French oak barrels for 6 to 12 months and then into decades-old retired Cognac barrels for an additional 12 to 24 months of finishing. About 26 pounds of peaches go into each bottle of Peach Street Peach Brandy.
American BrandyProduced 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.

"The brandy has a nose of honey, lemongrass, and stewed stone fruit. Initially, the flavors are honey-sweet before it evolves into a nutmeg-cooked peach flavor. With a dash of water, the nose opens up into a more floral tone with the palate expanding to honeysuckle, clove, and butterscotch. Smooth and lingering finish."
