The “Original Applejack”, Laird’s Straight Apple Brandy is made the same today as it was over 200 years ago. This product is 100% apple brandy, aged for a minimum of 4 years in charred oak barrels, then bottled at 100 proof. With its harmonious marriage of baked apple flavors and spiced wood notes, Laird’s Straight Apple Brandy exhibits the traditional, authentic expression of apple brandy. Great for sipping and demanded by the best bartenders worldwide, for use in both classic and modern cocktails.
Jersey Lightning is a historical nickname for Laird’s Apple Brandy. This 100 proof, clear, unaged brandy is the pure expression of our apple distillate. Made from tree ripened apples, it explodes with the aroma and flavors of cooked apples, figs, and peaches, while remaining incredibly soft and full in the mouth. It can be consumed neat or used in cocktails as a complimentary or main ingredient.
