Tree Spirits of Maine Pear Brandy
Tree Spirits of Maine // Maine, USA
This pear brandy was made by distilling pear cider sourced from one of their neighbors in Maine: The Apple Farm in Fairfield. They then age it in oak for an undisclosed amount of time. Tree Spirits of Maine proudly supports the local movement, ensuring that they know everyone who helps supply the ingredients of their fine wines and spirits.
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.
"Pale gold in hue with soft notes of green pear and sweet, crisp apple on the bouquet. Initial sweetness gives way to a delicate dry finish. Notes of pear and apple are complimented nicely by warm baking spices and a squeaky clean aftertaste. Smooth and uncomplicated."
