This is a Hudson Valley Sojourner double-up pick that will make your head spin. We couldn’t decide on a which way to go so we went with both the Peach Applejack and the Black Raspberry Core Vodka barreled onto our Pick list.
Both are made right here in the Hudson River Valley by Harvest Spirits Farm Distillery. The distillery is a part of the family run Golden Harvest Farm in Columbia County, NY.
Here’s what the farm folks have say about their jack and vodka:
“Our double-barrel aged Peach Applejack is made from fresh picked peaches, pitted by hand and soaked in our Cornelius Applejack, then strained and put back in the barrel. Peach Applejack has a mellow sweetness with rich flavors of spice and oak. A true fruit spirit. No sugar added. Some natural fruit sediment may occur.”
“Fresh, home-grown black raspberries macerated in Core Vodka, then redistilled in the French “framboise” style. A trace of black raspberry juice is added for a magnificent violet color. Profound aromas and dry flavor of juicy black raspberries.”
