Somerset Cider Brandy Co. 5 Year Old Apple Brandy (750ml)

SKU #1339723

With a farm consisting of over 180 acres of apple orchards, Julian Temperley has been distilling brandy and making cider at Somerset since 1989 when he was granted the UK's first ever cider-distilling license. Cider production in the UK dates back to the Romans, but the West of England in particular has a number PGIs - protected geographical origins - where the orchards are treated like Burgundian vineyards, each with its own particular terroir. Much like a single malt distillery, Somerset uses hogsheads, sherry butts, and port pipes to age its brandies. The core range includes three, five, ten, fifteen, and twenty year expressions, each with its own unique character. The five year old is simultaneously bursting with apples, while maintaining a mellow and almost creamy finish where a bit of that sherry kicks in and adds texture with weight. Available exclusively at K&L, we think our Calvados and cider customers are going to go bananas (or should we say apples?) for these incredible farm-to-table spirits.

The cider that is used to make this brandy is made from 40 different varieties that are chosen for their balance of flavors and acid. This brandy is bright and easy, yet subtle and understated. There is a long apple finish with a kiss of funk. This is a true farm to bottle product that reflects the people and area of Somerset England. Younger apple brandies can be very interesting because more of the apple flavors come out.
