Apple Brandy

Laird & Company has been producing fine aged Apple Brandy longer than anyone else in America.

  • Laird Apple Brandy 100 proof
  • Old Apple Brandy 7 1/2 yr old
  • Rare Old Apple Brandy 12 yr old

Our 12 year old Apple Brandy is the finest American Apple Brandy available. Each of the barrels containing apple brandy are tasted as they rest in our barrel ageing facility. Only the finest barrels are selected for our 12 year old Rare Apple Brandy. Barrels must have a minimum of 12 years of age before they are considered. This product is straight apple brandy and is not blended with any other products. After charcoal filtering, it is reduced to 88 proof and bottled by hand. Each bottle is hand numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by Larrie Laird. Laird’s 12 year old Rare Apple Brandy takes its place with other fine aged spirits of the world and exemplifies our rich tradition and heritage.




William Laird, a pioneer distiller from Scotland, began distilling apply brandy in 1698. His descendants have continued his time-honored distillation tradition for over two centuries.

Laird's Jersey Lightning is a perfectly clear apple brandy. Taste and see why Jersey Lightning was so beloved by our founding fathers.
