Longueville House Apple Brandy:
Longueville House is an 18th century estate in County Cork, Ireland, now operating as a hotel well known for excellent food (most of it grown and raised on the estate) and warm hospitality. Their apple brandy is distilled from their own cider using copper pot stills, then aged for four years in French oak barrels. The resulting brandy is rich with the aroma of apples, smooth and full bodied on the palate, with a rich, dark color. Longueville House Apple Brandy won a Gold Award at the Irish Food Awards in 2013.
