APPLE BRANDY

The nose is like walking into a bakery.
Probably Shouldn't Whiskey Apple Brandy

Charlemagne mentions apples in alcoholic beverages back in the 8th century. Gilles Picot from France was distilling apples in 1553. Apply Brandy has been sold commercially in the US since before the Declaration Of Independence.  Probably Shouldn’t’s hand crafted, small batch, Apple Brandy represents the finest of this long tradition.  And why shouldn’t it?  Washington State produces almost 2/3 of the apples in the United States, which gives us access to the best fruit available.

The aroma of brandy is one of its greatest attributes, and Probably Shouldn’t Distillery’s Apple Brandy doesn’t disappoint.  The nose is like walking into a bakery with the sweet smell of rich glazes and vanilla.  When you taste their Apple Brandy the flavours of spice, wood, and vanilla blend with the fruit leaving your mouth savouring the best of a long tradition of Apple Brandy.
