Kellybrook is a winery and cider producer in Victoria, Australia. Apart from making wine and cider, Kellybrook produce an apple brandy.
Kellybrook apple brandy is double distilled cider that is aged in Cognac oak for an average of 10 years. The brandy is easy-drinking and struck me as uncomplicated, fiery and drying, with plenty of apple and hints of spice.
When I paired this brandy with cheddar and salami, my palate jumped for joy! I eat a lot of cheese, but sipping this brandy made it that much more enjoyable to woof down a block of bitey Australian cheddar. I’m salivating just thinking about it.
