Modeled after a traditional Civil War era spirit recipe, Brinton’s Brandy is an apple brandy distilled from McCutcheon’s cider and infused with local cherries. While this spirit would have been called a “cherry brandy” at that time it typically would have been based with an apple brandy or rye whiskey then infused with cherries after distillation.
Brinton’s Brandy first appeared in 2018 and was a smashing success says NMCWM Director of Interpretation Jake Wynn. “The opportunity to experience history by sipping on a Civil War inspired spirit was fantastic. For that reason, we are so excited to work again with Tenth Ward to share the story of our nation’s history through an innovative medium like brandy.” Last year this package sold out. If you missed out last year, don’t miss out this year.
