Bourbon Barrel Pommeau

Our Pommeau starts off its journey as local organic Winesap apples, fresh pressed, fermented and cellar aged.  We then have it distilled into a 140 proof apple Eau De Vie, which is then blended back with hard cider and fresh apple juice; it’s then aged in used bourbon barrels for 12 months.  The results are an artistic apple brandy with an amazing blend of apple, vanilla, and smoke.

Grizzly Brand Hard Cider

For over 80 years the Growers Trading and Supply Co. in Hotchkiss Colorado sold millions of lbs of Apples as Grizzly Brand Apples.    Big B’s took over this location in 1973 and to pay homage to the Grizzly Brand we created a Hard Cider with historic roots and time honored traditions.   Grizzly Brand Hard Cider is aged in used bourbon barrels, it’s unfiltered and bottle conditioned.  It’s a crisp and dry cider that’s laced with woody vanilla like tones and finishes with the warmth of fine bourbon.
