Laird & Company is synonymous with apple spirits and three centuries of family distilling tradition. The company produces the vast majority of all Applejack and American Apple Brandy on the market, which have been enjoyed since colonial times and are equally prized by today’s mixology community.
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.
Much beloved by America’s early settlers, AppleJack is now enjoying resurgence in popularity, both as a beverage and as a cooking ingredient, which imparts a tantalizing and unique flavor to a variety of dishes. Only carefully selected, whole, tree-ripened apples can be used in the making of Laird's Applejack. Many varieties of apples are used, including Jonathans, Winesaps, Staymans, Pippins, and Delicious apples. Applejack is made at the peak of the apple harvest, in early September to mid-November. This insures the quality and sweetness of the apples are at their peak.
