These boys have been at it for ages and I can vouch for the quality of their stuff (the price is eye-watering, though). They'll also put you right on the legalities of distilling your own stuff.hi all got a allotment apple trees looking good made cider and wine now thinking of apple brandy any of you good folk have a recipe
You can distil in the U.K if you have a distillers licence, we do not allow distilling to be discussed in the forum unless the member who wants to discuss it has a licence, we have yet to see one.You can't make brandy without distlling which is illegal in the UK
Found it, this is the one we had a glass ofI'm not sure what cider wine is. In German, ordinary cider is apfelwein or apple wine. In Normandy we have something called pommeau which is wine strength but it's just calvados diluted with pure apple juice. In Canada they let the apples freeze on the trees and then press the juice out to make a cider of 15+ %.
One of the problems with fruit fermentation is methanol as a by-product of pectin fermentation. How does freezing eliminate it?Looks like they do produce it by freezing it, not as concentrated as Applejack. In fact, at 7% it's just a (very expensive) strong cider - was nice though!
