Maple-Jack

Fall for Art in the Age’s Maplejack

25 September 2018- The workshop and testing ground for Quaker City Mercantile, Art in the Age, is thrilled to reveal their newest spirit—Maplejack. The limited-small-batch spirit is only available at Art in the Age while supplies last for $49.99.

Crafted at Tamworth Distilling, local maple syrup is combined with 100% New Hampshire apple brandy. Deep flavors similar to warm mulled cider and an aroma of rich grade syrup makes Maplejack the perfect Autumnal spirit.

“Maple season is a special time of year in Tamworth, New Hampshire, home of the Art in the Age Test Kitchen. As the state starts to thaw, the circulatory systems of trees kick back into high gear. Cold nights and warmer days begin the perfect ebb and flow within Sugar Maple trees, releasing their sweet sap,” said Steven Grasse, Founder of Quaker City. “Simultaneously, another bit of wood sugar magic is taking place in the barrels, full of apple brandy which was pressed, fermented, and distilled during the previous autumn.”

Presenting at 35ABV, Art in the Age Maplejack is best-celebrated neat, on the rocks or in simple cocktails.

“This spirit is truly versatile,” said Art in the Age Mixologist Lee Noble. “Whether served neat, on the rocks or in one of Art in the Age’s unique cocktails, Maplejack has universal Autumnal appeal.”
