Yes, New Mexico has apples. Deal with it.

Colin Keegan, a British dude living in Santa Fe, used to be an architect. When the economy plummeted in 2009 he was forced to close up shop. Lucky for us, the following year Colin, a long-time Whiskey afficionado, founded Santa Fe Spirits. His vision was to grow local organic ingredients to bring high-quality Scotch-style Whiskies and Calvados-style apple Brandies to the Southwest. What this artisan distillery has in spades today is versatility, their lineup consisting of all manner of spirits: Whiskey, Vodka, Gin, Liqueur, Brandy, you name it. Despite being a relatively small facility, Santa Fe Spirits produces top quality products.

When you have ancient orchards in New Mexico so full of apples that you no longer know what to do with all the cider, there's a logical solution. Make Brandy, lots of Brandy. And keep it in the family, because it's epic and you won't share, nuh-uh. This is what the family has been doing for a while, understandably. But the time has finally come and Colin is releasing this beast into the wild. Santa Fe Apple Brandy is a Calvados style that's made of apples from his own as well as his neighbors' orchards. It's aged for a minimum of 10 months in new American oak casks and is here for everybody to enjoy. Don't mind if we do.

Brandies can help digestion, so they are perfect after meals. They were and are still considered medicine. Basically, any fruit that can be fermented can be distilled and turned into Brandy.
The Keegan family built their home in Tesuque, a traditional farming community just outside of Santa Fe, it’s a mature apple orchard with trees ranging from young saplings to massive centenarians.
Nevertheless, the best Brandies are required to preserve the concentrated flavor of the used fruit.

Brandy was invented in the 16th century by a sneaky Dutch merchant who learned how to remove water from Wine and save cargo space. He then added water again and called it “Bradwijn”, which means “burned wine”.
