New York City may be known as the Big Apple, but a few hundred miles upstate you will find some of the finest apples that America has to offer. For the preparation of our New York Apple Whiskey, we use a wide range of these apples, from the common Golden Delicious, to the rare Macoun apple, searching for the perfect blend of flavors and aromas.
When the selection of apples are nearly overripe, they are juiced and gently blended with our whiskey. The distinctive flavors of several varieties of New York States finest apples will provide the backdrop to the subtle whiskey finale. After blending, the Apple Whiskey is racked into used bourbon barrels for additional aging. The barrels will add the oak, raisin, and vanilla finish in this handcrafted American Whiskey. The mix of the sweet and tart apples balance perfectly with the charred oak finish, making the New York Apple Whiskey the ultimate small batch after dinner drink, much like a fine cordial or dessert wine.
It is also delicious served on the rocks, or as a refined twist to a more traditional Manhattan. We invite you to try some of our favorite recipes by clicking here.
