SLW and I were out today at a new food store and in their
liquor section I found a blast from my past in New Jersey!

Laird's AppleJack!! Stuff was first made in Monmouth NJ in
1698. I haven't seen a bottle of this stuff since I left Monmouth
County nearly 15 years ago. :)

I'll try it again for the holidays!

Okay. Educate me.

A liqueur?

A "brandy"?

I used to drink it on the rocks or mixed with Coke.
I've always thought of it as like a good rum.

Good answer. It's distilled then.

I know people up here who make "brandy" that is triple distilled and flavored with fruit, such as apples or peaches. It will peel paint and knock you on your butt.

Enjoy your Apple jack.

Interesting. The folks I (allegedly/hypothetically) know up here make corn liquor and then flavor it with fruit and call it brandy.

Yeah....right.

It's like moonshine, kind of. You take hard cider and distill it. It's got a long history along the Eastern seaboard.

I've thought of making hard cider myself since I have so many apple trees.

Hard cider is very good.

I like it myself but I'd have to get an apple press - trust me, I'd have enough apples.

Right now, I dump my apples to my own equines and Horse Rescue. I'd much rather turn them into something more immediately useful. Horses like apples but they don't need them. I may need hard cider if I acquired a taste for it. :D

Its fun finding an unusual booze! The craze don't last long tho. I found that black Blavod vodka and it was a hit for a month then died out and then the Dr. Jeckyl & Mr Hyde pair of boozes and that didn't last! But it was fun for the duration!
That does sound like something I would like to try! :D

But then again, I'll try any booze! :D
