Looking up "Jersey Lightning," in history books will lead you to the first commercial producer of cider in America – a Scotsman named William Laird. Beginning in 1698 he produced what was called “cyder” at the time (also referred to assince it was produced in New Jersey). What’s unbelievable about this is that Laird’s still exists today, and is bottling a perfectly clear apple brandy again, so we can taste and see why Laird's Jersey Lightning Apple Brandy was so beloved by our founding fathers. This will be a very limited bottling. Anyone who gets to drink the Laird's Jersey Lightning Apple Brandy will surely be tasting a piece of history.
