Laird's Apple Brandy 100°

Item # 20250 750mL

A Scot came to America with his sons over 300 years ago, one of whom was involved in Scotch production. Taking what was in abundance to the northeast, apples, and distilling them, came naturally. The family business has survived wars (one was a soldier in George Washington's army), fire, and worst of all, the Prohibition. Enjoy this in a myriad of cocktails such as the Jersey City Cocktail:

Shake in iced cocktail shaker and strain
2 oz applejack
1/2 oz pineapple juice
1 dash Angostura bitters
1/2 tsp sugar
Serve in a cocktail glass

Or you can simply sip it straight up. Back in the day, people were fearful of the water and drank this instead. You know what they say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away."

Staff Pick Notes

If you like drinking American spirits, but aren’t familiar with Laird’s Apple Brandy, then you're missing out on a genuine historical treasure. The Laird family immigrated from Scotland in the late 1600s & applied their experience with grain-based spirits to the distillation of apples. Documented since the colonial era, this distillery holds the first license ever issued by the United States government & can boast that George Washington wrote to the family asking for their recipe. This brandy is a common component in many cocktails & also works as a solid stand in for other brown spirits if experimentation is in order. Try a Laird’s Manhattan, Old Fashioned or make yourself a Honeymoon from the PDT Cocktail Book. The Laird family even recommends drinking it straight on the rocks. You know what they say about an apple (brandy) a day...
