Brightonwoods Apple Brandy

Wisconsin Apples, Wisconsin Brandy.

Our Apple Brandy is distilled entirely from Brightonwoods Orchard apples. With over 200 heirloom apple varieties, Wisconsin’s Brightonwoods Orchard is the perfect source for our apple brandy. We choose a few select varieties and distill those apples into a brandy using our old world copper pot stills. Nothing artificial, just 100% apple distillate. This brandy is then aged for over two years in new charred oak barrels and used bourbon barrels. The result is an authentic, hand-crafted Wisconsin brandy perfect in a Wisconsin Old Fashioned, Brandy Sour, Jack Rose, or your favorite brandy cocktail.

  • 100% Apple distillate. Nothing artificial.
  • Aged in new charred oak barrels and bourbon barrels.
  • Apples from Brightonwoods Orchard in Southeast Wisconsin.
  • Made in small batches in Wisconsin's first distillery since Prohibition.
  • Brightonwoods is non-chill filtered. It will retain maximum flavor, but might leave a little sediment in the bottle.

Barrel Aged Pear Brandy

A Balanced Mix of Fresh Pear & Rich Oak

  • A blend of ripe Midwestern grown pears that are milled, fermented, distilled, and aged for over 2 years at Great Lakes Distillery.
  • Only two casks of pear brandy were produced and combined for this one time release.
  • Crafted to be enjoyed neat in a snifter, with a few ice cubes, or will shine in craft cocktails.
  • The production methods and flavors of this brandy fall close in line with both apple brandy and the French produced Calvados.
  • Barrel Aged Pear Brandy can be used in place of both apple brandy or grape based brandy to add a dynamic nuance to classic cocktails such as a Jack Rose or Sidecar. Cocktails are available in our cocktail datebase.
  • Straw gold in color. Crisp fresh pear and apple on the nose with hints of vanilla and pie dough. Bright sharp pear on the palate with mild caramel, weathered oak, and sweet vanilla compliments. Medium finish of baked pear, faint cinnamon, and sweet oak.

Artisan Series Brandy

Like the fruit they are made from, the Artisan Series Brandies have limited availability.
