Copper & Kings American Apple Brandy (750ml)

SKU #1230175

Available exclusively at K&L in California, Copper & Kings is going be the next big thing in American microdistillation. Think of them as the St. George or the Anchor Steam of Kentucky. Started in 2014 by Joe and Lesley Heron, the Louisville-based brandy upstart uses three gigantic Vendome copper pot stills to craft a number of different brandy expressions, both from grapes and apples. Those spirits are then blended into an aged solera system of older expressions, created from mature stocks purchased across the country from other pot-distilling brandy producers. The results are absolutely incredible and we couldn't be more excited to offer them here to our savvy consumers. The American Apple Brandy is made from stocks aged 90% in ex-Bourbon casks and 10% in ex-sherry, which adds a textural richness to the finish that cannot be understated. The fruit is still front and center, pure apple skin and cider-like flavors, but with a weight and supple texture that coat the palate and add richness to the backend. At 100 proof, it mixes like a middleweight--something less robust than applejack, but less delicate than Calvados. It's tailor made for a Jack Rose and for the price it's something you can sip or mix with reckless abandon.

I really loved this apple brandy. Some of us who have been around a while remember the days of pretty harsh apple brandy, and this couldn't be further from those bad old days. The Copper & Kings American Apple Brandy is wonderfully full bodied, with a lovely texture and bold fruit. Not simple at all, despite the great price. This was one of my top two of the offerings from Copper & Kings
Top Value!

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
