Barking Irons Applejack is a 100-proof, made-in-New-York Applejack made from 100% New York apples. Starting at Black Dirt Distillery in upstate, NY, we begin with the cider of local Jonagold, Macoun, and Gala apples. Distilled down to an apple Eau de Vie from that cider, we then age the product in 10-gallon char-2 oak barrels at Van Brunt Stillhouse in Brooklyn, NY.
Barking Irons Applejack ($39.99): Barking Irons is a fantastic example of New York (and America’s) oldest spirit done right. Smooth enough that you have to double check to see if it is really 100 proof, but characterful enough that you won’t soon forget it. It’s rich with vanilla and spice and notes of pepper, caramel, and cocoa in the finish.
