How Do I Make Apple Brandy at Home?
Apple brandy can be made from fruit or fruit juices.

Made from white or red wine and usually aged for several years in oak barrels, brandy can be flavored with various fruit juices. In particular, apple brandy is made from apple cider and white wine. The two main types of apple brandy are Calvados and applejack. If you have leftover apples, you can make your own version of apple brandy. You can enjoy apple brandy as a dessert drink or use it to flavor sweet and savory dishes.
