Production Notes

Our 100 proof apple brandy, distilled from our cider made with organic PNW apples, is first aged for two months in American oak. The Fall apple harvest comes in and the must, or fresh unfermented juice, is then blended with the brandy in the barrel. The 20% abv mixture continues to mature in the barrel for approximately two years. Our Pommeau brings out the diamond in the rough, revealing the sumptuous elegance within the apple, while a whispy haze harkens to the rustic farm roots of this method.

Apple Varieties

A blend of select organically grown traditional bitterhsarp and bittersweet cider apples. Bittersweet cider apples —Finnriver-grown Yarlington Mill; Brown Snout and Dabinette from Siskin Orchard on Orcas Island; and bittersharp Kingston Black organically grown in the Finnriver Orchard.
