Schoharie Eau-de-Vie de Pomme
KyMar Farm // New York, USA
Husband-and-wife team Kenneth and Lori Wortz run this small operation in a former bookbinding factory in rural central New York. Kenneth grew up on an apple farm in Pennsylvania, but never though he'd set foot on a farm again as an adult. KyMar Farm spirits are made from locally-grown ingredients, fermented, distilled, and bottled on site.
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.
"This unaged cider brandy shows wonderful transparency and a delightfully balanced texture. It emphasizes pure, delicate fruit and leafy forest air aromatics in contrast with some of the heavier, waxier European style eaux-de-vie."
