American Fruits Distillery is New York’s first Fruit Distillery. We are currently producing apple and pear brandies (eaux de vies) and a line of all natural fruit liqueurs: Black Currant Cordial, Bourbon Barrel Aged Apple Liqueur, Grappa Grape Brandy, and Sour Cherry Cordial. Our liquers make great mixed drinks, see below for recipes.
In 2001 the Warwick Valley Winery imported a steam fired German Copper Still (pictured here) and in 2002 became the first licensed distillery in the Hudson Valley since prohibition.
We are now producing a line of exceptional fruit brandies and liqueurs under the brand name American Fruits. The American Fruits line of distilled spirits capture the true essence of the fruit and are reminiscent of the finest French and German fruit brandies.
American Fruits Bartlett Pear Liqueur is a blend of Hudson Valley grown Bartlett pears and our pear brandy. Finished in oak, this unique pear liqueur has aromas and flavors of ripe pear with hints of vanilla and toasted oak. Serve this liqueur after a great meal accompanied by rich cheeses or a favorite dessert. Treat yourself to poached pears and vanilla bean ice cream with American Fruits Bartlett Pear Liqueur drizzled on top.
