Hot apple toddy


Ironworks Distillery in Lunenburg, N.S., uses Annapolis Valley apples to create apple brandy. The apples are fermented, distilled on-site, and then aged in lightly toasted Hungarian Oak barrels for three years. The apples provide a rich, spicy flavour balanced with the barrel’s subtle vanilla and toffee notes.
