History

In 1698 Alexander Laird emigrated from Scotland, UK to America, with his two sons Thomas and William. William, having made Whiskey before, set about opening an Inn and producing his own spirits (mainly from apples, which were in plentiful supply). Descendents carried on the tradition and in 1780 they established their first (and this country’s first) commercial distillery, being granted license No. 1. Larrie Laird, the 8th generation of the family is carrying on the tradition today as President, and the company is still famous for their Apple based spirits (AppleJack and Apple Brandy).

Tasting Notes

On the nose is a light fruity citrus aroma with notes of alcohol. The palate is mild with notes of fruity citrus and herbs, it follows with a strong alcohol burn. Whilst not a smooth sipping Gin, this is a low price one, making it popular with people on restricted budgets. It is best used as a spirit to mix in long drinks and punches and may be found in a bartenders’ “well”.
