Since America’s earliest days, apples have been prized for their spirit-making qualities. Back then, hard cider was a cleaner alternative to water, so our ancestors were making and drinking plenty. But cider wasn’t strong enough for them, so they decided to take it one step further. Through a process known as ‘jacking’, these innovative imbibers created a spirit known as Applejack. Thus, discovering what is often called the original American spirit.
Here in New York, we produce some of the finest apples in the country – perhaps the world, and every year Barking Irons Spirits sources some of the best varieties in the state to make our Applejack.
Served per tradition at 100-proof, and aged in charred oak barrels, it’s the perfect spirit for a fan of fine American Applejack, or the whiskey drinker seeking something new.
