The Black Dirt Region takes its name from the dark, fertile soil left by an ancient glacial that once covered upstate New York. Black Dirt Distillery is part of a huge project located in Warwick, NY, less than 40 miles away from our shop yet still within the Hudson Valley. This brand was formed in 2012 to meet the huge demand of the Black Dirt Apple Jack and Black Dirt Bourbon, which were both born at the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery (they also make Doc’s Draft Ciders and American Fruits brand liqueurs). They built a new distillery in Pine Island in 2013 and created the brand to be separate from their others, expanding upon the years of experience in both distillation and marketing that co-founders Jason Grizzanti and Jeremy Kidde have accumulated. Apple Jack is the quintessential American spirit, and before prohibition, the Black Dirt Region was home to dozens of distillers. Black Dirt Apple Jack carries on this local tradition with this 100% Apple Brandy aged for a minimum of 4 years in new charred American Oak barrels. It is bottled in bond at 100 proof and uses all Jonagold apples. It has hints of vanilla, honey, and spice on the nose complemented by fresh apples, with a lean, spicy finish.
