All-Georgia Apple Brandy: Tour, 5-Spirit Flight & Delicious Bottle of Georgia's Only All-Georgia Apple Brandy at ASW Distellery
Our favorite spirit whisperers at ASW Distillery just so happen to be friends with Blue Ridge, Georgia's Mercier Orchards and have released a new edition of Georgia's only All-Georgia Apple Brandy from 100% North Georgia apples. The result is their delicious, apple-forward pre-Prohibition-style apple brandy, Armour & Oak, and they've put together this exclusive tour & tasting package for us.
What To Expect
- 5 tickets for samples and/or half-cocktails from ASW's whiskey & cocktail collection, including Duality Double Malt Whiskey, Fiddler Unison Bourbon, Atlanta's 1st rye since Prohibition (Resurgens Rye), and their "2nd Best Old Fashioned". Note that cocktails are 2 tickets a piece.
- An in-depth tour of ASW's distillery where you'll discover how their Bourbons, Ryes & Duality Double Malt, among others, are made
- A special discount on anything in the ASW store, including whiskey glasses, decanters, and small oak barrels to barrel age your spirits at home
- 1 bottle of Georgia's 1st Ever All-Georgia Apple Brandy .
Georgia's rich apple-growing tradition historically made for some great apple brandy, lightly aged and high in proof. Prohibition put the kibosh on this apple brandy, but ASW Distillery has revived the art form with a 100 proof apple brandy full of apple, vanilla & cinnamon notes (derived purely from the distillation and aging process) -- perfect for the Autumn weather that's slowly settling in this time of year.
Georgia's new booze laws that went into effect September 1st couldn't have come at a better time for ASW Distillery, who just celebrated their tasting room's One Year Anniversary. As part of the new laws, ASW Distillery unveiled a righteous new cocktail program that includes some of the best Old Fashioneds, Sazeracs, and Mules (using Atlanta's 18.21 Bitters) in the city, as well as a new edition of their Armour & Oak Apple Brandy!
Plus, you'll go home with a bottle of ASW Distillery's Armour & Oak Apple Brandy, fresh off the brandy's sabbatical in a new oak barrel.
Here's your chance to go behind the scenes and learn how ASW churns out all this good stuff with our exclusive distillery tour and tasting. You'll learn about their distillation process, getting a peek at their 15-foot-tall Scottish-style copper pot stills that were custom-made for ASW Distillery by Kentucky's Vendome Copper and Brass Works. You'll also get a walk through ASW's rickhouse, which is home to over 120 barrels of whiskey being aged to perfection.
And then onto the good stuff: the tour concludes with five tickets for tastings or half-cocktails (plus more available for purchase, if you're in the groove), where you can choose from fiddler Bourbon, Resurgens Rye, Duality Double Malt, Armour & Oak Apple Brandy, or one of their feature cocktails, including those fine Old Fashioneds, Sazeracs, and Mules we mentioned.
Enjoy your libations at their impressive brushed walnut bar, relax in a leather armchair in their lounge area, or savor your sips while enjoying a game of cornhole (if they don't have it out, feel free to ask them to get the board out).
