Apple Jack

5

Listen: 

Applewood Farm Winery's Apple Jack has a dark caramel colour with aromas of smokey baked apples, vanilla and spice.

It has intense baked apple flavours with complex tannins showcasing heavily charred oak, with notes of cinnamon and vanilla. This Applejack is sweet, well balanced and has a long, smooth, lingering, finish.

This amazing representation of modern Applejack is a must try. Bottled from a small batch that was aged for four years in French and American oak barrels, this Applejack is sure to please the most discerning palate.

With 21% alcohol, it is packaged in a 750 ml whisky bottle, complete with waxed covered stopper and an old-time label design that would make this Applejack a wonderful gift. But don't wait, contact Applewood Farm Winery right away as this one will not last and is going fast.

Stair's Pear Brandy

Stair's Pear Brandy

Listen: 

Stair's Pears originated in England and are known as the Bartlett Pear in Canada. The same fruit is also known as the Williams Pear and is used to create some of the most aromatic brandies in the world.

This brandy was made from 100% B.C. Bartlett Pears that were slowly fermented, then triple distilled in a copper pot still, 200 litres at a time. The brandy was then blending and aged in French oak barrels for over 6 years.

Stair's Pear Brandy has a light golden colour and generous aromas of fresh crushed pears with smoky undertones. This rich fruit aroma is a true sign of a well made brandy.

Smokey oak penetrates the amazingly intense pear flavours creating balance and structure. This luscious brandy has a long finish and very well rounded mouth feel that keeps the smoky pear flavour in your mouth for several minutes after each sip.

Tillicum Hopped Cider

Tillicum Hopped Cider

Listen: 

Tillicum Hopped Cider has a medium straw colour and is somewhat cloudy due to the dry hopping process. This is a natural appearance for a freshly hopped cider and tells you that is truly fresh. Over time the cloudiness will settle.

When first opened, the aromas of freshly dried hops and crisp apples waft out of the bottle. Pouring it slowly into a flute, shows subtle effervescence with tiny bubbles floating to the top of the glass.

On first sip you will taste the natural smokiness of dry hops, with a solid apple structure supporting a full yet crisp flavour and well rounded mouth feel. There is a long and satisfying finish that leaves the essence of dry hops on your tongue.

This dry cider has an alcohol content of 9% and is packaged in a clear 750 ml bottle with resealable cap. Infused with hops grown at the Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse, this cider is as unique as it is delicious.
