Apple Brandy Bundle: Black Dirt Bottled in Bond, Laird’s Bottled in Bond
This set includes two of the three bonded apple brandies recommended to pair with Shaker & Spoon’s Fruits of Fall Box: American Apple Brandy Box. You can try each one with all the cocktails, and still have apple brandy left over for your own crafted creations!

“Black Dirt Bottled in Bond Apple Jack Apple Brandy has both soft notes of apple and baking spice as well as the strong backbone of a bonded apple brandy—a combination that works harmoniously in your fall cocktail creations,” says Haley. But in addition to a perfect canvas for mixing, brandies can help digestion, so they are perfect on their own after a meal.
Leah’s recommendation is a classic: Laird’s Bottled in Bond Straight Apple Brandy. “Hailing from New Jersey, this woman-run distillery is one of the oldest in the country. Laird’s spends four years in barrel and is bottled at 100 proof. This produces a full-bodied brandy with notes of spice.” The high proof of the spirit provides a nice warm backbone to cocktails.
