Evan Williams Apple Orchard Seasonal Liqueur
This spirit has yet to face the slings and arrows of the rating agencies.
Heaven Hill Distilleries was founded shortly after prohibition and in the height of the Great Depression with no brands and no ready available stocks of whiskey. Today, they claim an inventory of over 675,000 barrels. The company reports that it is "the largest independent, family-owned producer and marketer of distilled spirits in the country." While Heaven Hill focuses on bourbon, it produces a wide array of spirits.
Evan Williams is one of the largest producers of bourbon in the world. They have also become well-known for flavored spirits and have combined the expertise in American spirits (bourbon), that very American fruit (apple... see Johnny Appleseed and apple pie despite the fact that the French have their Calvados), and the season of Autumn to make the Apple Orchard liqueur. The spirit is made from authentic apple cider and meant to pay homage to the southern applejack spirits often enjoyed in the fall. It is meant to be served straight from the bottle and they suggest warming. Apple Orchard was first launched in 2012 and expected to be available for the months of September through November.
