We have the Brown Dog Whiskey, 80 proof, 375mL bottles back in stock!
Which is good, because right now, on the low alcohol end, we only have Blackbird Berried Cider. (Which does happen to be the best selling of our draft-style ciders). Every thing else is high ABV. One sweet (Poirissimo! Pear Dessert Winer), and then the whiskey, brandies, and gin.
This is our pre-penultimate weekend. As a reminder, after 12/19, we will be hours by appointment (conditions allowing) until May 2022.
The end of October brings the end of our weekday hours. We will remain open Saturdays (11-4) and Sundays (12-4) until Dec 19th. Give or take snow storms.
We are running low on stock, but as of this writing, have 3 draft style ciders, our Pear Wine, both dessert wines, Brown Dog Whiskey, Apple Brandy, Peach Brandy, Kettle Geneva Gin, and one other…
Speaking of which, we are pleased to announce the release of a new batch of our VS Brightognac Three Year Old Estate Grape Brandy. It’s rich of hue and intensely aromatic.
Alrighty folks, its bottling time of year, and we’ve gotten a couple products on the shelf recently.
I’ve created a new Tasting Room Current Selections menu page on the website (under Visit Us), and linked it to Facebook. I hope to keep it up to date.
Apples Doux II – a semi-sweet champagne-method cider. Differs from the original Doux by using all Anglo-Franco true (tannic) cider apples – even for the final sweetening.
Pommeaux – the Apple dessert wine is back!
Wisconsin Apple Brandy – is back! Hurray. And there’s a limited amount of Cask Strength, too. 750mL, 118 proof.
Low Inventory :
Pommeaux Apple Dessert wine. More will be ready in early summer. Call if you’d like some of the current batch set aside.
Poirissimo! Pear Dessert Wine
WI Immature Brandy.
Heard this story this morning. Our Brown Dog Whiskey is distilled from WI grown Sweet Sorghum, and aged with oak, apple, cherry and chestnut wood. Lots of plants.
We obviously need to get Amy some.

A white pear brandy, or eau de vie.
A white spirit means, you guessed it, no oak aging. ‘Honesty’ goes nearly directly from still to bottle. We also bottle it a bit warm. 95 proof. We ‘re trying to get as much as pear into the bottle as we can.
So what’s honest about ‘Honesty’? A more traditional French, German or Austrian ‘Poire Williams’ would have been distilled from 100% Bartlett (aka Williams) pears. Those have a very distinct and powerful aroma. AeppelTreow Honesty comes, in great or lesser part each year, from distilling the stuff at the bottoms of our pear wine and perry tanks. And what’s left over in the filters and pumps during transfers. While we take great care in local-sourcing Brown Dog Whiskey and WI Apple Brandy, Honesty just kind of happens.Movie Fifty Shades Darker (2017)
Light pear bouquet followed by fire. Honesty is pear lightning. Not as brilliant ‘pear skin’ flavor as the best of its class, Honesty does have a nice balance and a lingering hint of spice that makes for a nice digestif or cocktail spirit.
Bottled in 375mL at 95 proof.
