Orchard to bottle, a truly local spirit!

Apple Brandy production commenced in 2022 using the 2021 harvest of apples from our walled garden here at Torrisdale Castle Estate.  We also gathered windfalls from local gardens around Kintyre as we don’t like to waste a thing!

Our first release is on the shelves alongside an unaged apple eau de vie.

We have several more casks filled and are continuing production.

Following a small crowdfunder scheme, we planted 550 more apple trees around the estate which will utlimately provide fruit for our brandy whilst also sequestering carbon. Win win!

Hand-crafted in the heart of Kintyre, our orchard-to-bottle Apple Brandy is bursting with fruity flavours with hints of vanilla and spice. 

We have used the finest Torrisdale Estate apples, hand-picked on our beautiful estate.  Our brandy has been double-distilled in our hydro-powered copper pot still then left to age in an American virgin oak cask for over a year.

Each bottle is hand-labelled by our distiller in 100% recycled glass bottles.  We endeavour to keep sustainability at the heart of everything we do.

A deliously crisp apple spirit straight from our orchard at Torrisdale Castle Estate.

Our Apple Eau de Vie is made from a 4 month fermentation of the finest Kintyre apple juice, followed by a double distillation in our copper pot still.

Using apples from our orchards on Torrisdale Castle Estate, our own renewable energy and the purest of Argyll spring water,  this is a truly sustainable taste of Kintyre.

Delicious neat over ice or try it as an Apple Schnapps with our Earra Gael Salt Vodka and lemon juice!
