Tree Spirits of Maine Applejack
Tree Spirits of Maine // Maine, USA
After experiencing a near extinction, Applejack is making a resurgence thanks to New England and New York's micro-distillery movement. Barrel aged for 6 weeks and distilled from Maine Apple Cider from the Apple Farm located in Fairfield. Made from late-season varietals (Golden Russet, Permain, and Northern Spy) and preservative-free.
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.
"Very pale gold in color with a sweet and floral nose. Slightly sweet apple taste with a hint of oak gives way to a clean, dry mouthfeel. Tart apple notes distinguish the mid-palate with a lingering vanilla aftertaste. "
