We have bottled our unique Quince Brandy Liqueur 17% in our handsome 1 litre Apotheker bottle. Quince Brandy Liqueur is a highly unususal and gentle drink. Its taste is of figs and apples, with a subtle dryness on the tongue. If you like artisan, handmade liqueurs such as our Sloe Gin you might just like this. It is completely unique to us.
How is it best drunk?
Sip our Quince Brandy Liqueur with ice or long with tonic, fresh limes, fresh lemons and fresh mint. You can also add a dash to a glass of sparkling White Wine or Champagne to help your party get off to a good start!
How is this made?
Quince Brandy Liqueur is made by infusing handpicked Quince fruit in Apple Eau de Vie, along with a little sugar. Our Apple Eau de Vie is produced at Burrow Hill Farm by Julian Temperley, a wonderfully passionate man who has achieved miracles to hold the first recorded full cider distilling license in recorded history. Julian and his family, also produces our Somerset 10 Year Old Cider Brandy and our Somerset Pomona 20%. The Quince are picked each October in Julian's home orchard. The process of making Apple Eau de Vie and ultimately Cider Brandy is complex. In the autumn Somerset vintage cider apples are gathered and pressed. The juice is fermented in huge oak vats and then distilled in two stills which Julian has given the names "Fifi" and "Josephine." The resulting clear spirit is known as Eau de Vie.
