Don't be fooled by the less expensive blended variety. This is the real deal and is 100% aged apple brandy, none of the neutral stuff. Apple Jack is America's Calvados, although you must only have the straight apple brandy to avoid the blends. This is a necessity for anyone creating an authentic bar. And if you don't have what it takes to make a delicious Jack Rose cocktail, or a Calvados Cocktail, then you don't have an authentic bar. Laird's is the Rittenhouse Rye of apple distillates. The bottled in bond is finally back!
