apple jack


Generic for the first New World-native distilled spirit, first produced in the 17th century by English or European settlers in America. Currently it is often (but not always) blended with neutral spirits. Sometimes a bit of sweet apple wine is added to increase the depth and apple flavor of the bottled product. Excellent in cocktails. Brand example: Laird's Applejack
