Laird's Applejack Goodness

Jack Rose

Fruity, boozy, apple-ly. The Jack Rose, a century-old recipe, is our apple-centric cocktail refined for Drnxmyth by Adam George Fournier @bottledinbondLA. The 'Jack' stands for 'Applejack' or Apple Brandy, which is really like an apple whiskey.  The 'Rose' is the rosy color from the bright, fresh pomegranate and lemon juices, which compliments the brandy to make a light and refreshing apple punch. 

The Laird Distillery, the oldest distillery in the United States, supplied us with their renowned 'bottled in bond' Straight Apple Brandy --  a 200-year-old spirit.  'Bottled in bond,' a U.S. regulatory term developed out of Prohibition, which means the spirit was distilled in a single season, aged for at least four years, and bottled at 100 proof.  We of course receive it at 129 proof and then proof it down for your enjoyment.

Maintaining Heritage

Laird's Applejack

As America evolved over the past 200 plus years, so has Laird’s Applejack. To meet consumer demand for lighter, less alcoholic spirits, the Laird family created the Blended Applejack spirit category in 1972. Today, best described as an apple whiskey, Laird’s Applejack is a pure spirit beverage made from a blend of apple brandy and neutral grain spirits. The aged apple brandy base gives Laird’s Applejack a rich, deep flavor and smooth balance, while retaining the delicate aroma and flavor of tree-ripened apples from which it is made. Our blended applejack imparts this delightful apple flavor to mixed cocktails, punches and culinary recipes. Its versatility is boundless. Experiment and substitute Laird’s Applejack in your favorite cocktails. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
