Dande Jack Brandy
This small-batch spirit showcases the undercelebrated botanical, dandelion, and will be available while supplies last exclusively at our tasting room. Based around the uber-popular Art in the Age Maple Jack, this new spirit is a much more complex expression. Some of the darker barrel notes are thinned with clear apple brandy to open the overall spirit up to fill Dandelion and a little Chicory root to give bitter woody structure. The bitter then hinges on the sweet, giving a deeper appreciation for their role in the applejack. This duet effect is often exploited by confectioners and candy makers, who use a bit of gentian to candy and prolong the depth of character.
Created at Tamworth Distilling and inspired by local cultural celebrations, Dande Jack honors spring and the humble dandelion by flavoring Apple Jack with the woody bitterness of dandelion root, which is then balanced by sweet and warm local maple syrup. Presenting at 35ABV, Art in the Age Dande Jack is a gentle and versatile liquid best-celebrated neat, on the rocks or in simple spring-themed cocktails.
