Our apple brandy is distilled from our own cider to produce this wonderfully smooth and warming craft spirit.
Following distillation the spirit is matured in new American oak casks at approximately 65% before being bottled at 45%.
The name is derived from Sweeney Nonpareil, which is a native Shropshire apple, that almost became extinct in the 1970s. It is one of the varieties of local apples we press to make the cider. When you visit you can see the apple trees in our orchard. The cider, produced by Stonehouse Brewery is sold as Sweeney Mountain (refreshing, traditionally produced, medium dry) and Elevate (sparking medium dry and bursting with apples) ciders.
Nonpareil is perfect served neat as a digestif. We also love mixing it with lemon juice, sugar syrup and sparkling wine to create a Nonpareil ’75.
