By our friends at Strickland Hollow and Distiller Jerry Pellegrino. They are dedicated to farming traditional heirloom varietal cider apples in a holistic way. The use copper still to gently concentrate the complex flavors and textures of the New York apples and aged in American oak barrels.
"...for our Pommeau, we chose to make a very high proof spirit, allowing us to add as little as possible to the apple juice to preserve as much apple flavor as possible...that was going to require a column still. We also wanted the stills to be made in America, as we feel about everything we do here. Enter Sven from Olympic Distillers in Port Angeles, Washington."
