CIDER DAYS 2.0: History of Apple Jack

About this event

Lisa Laird Dunn is the COO and Global Ambassador of Laird’s & Company, America’s first licensed distiller circa 1780, when License #1 was granted by the (newly formed )United States of America. Today No 1 is still proudly displayed on the door to the Barrel Aging Room at the main office in Scobeyville, New Jersey.

Lisa is an 9th generation Laird and the first women to lead the company. Hear how Apple Jack helped to fuel the American Revolution by providing much needed sustenance to the soldiers of that time. Even George Washington drank Laird’s Apple Jack, as noted in his diaries.

Taste and savor the remarkable history of the Laird family and Apple Jack in early America to present day.

This is both a historical talk and tasting of 3 Laird’s & Company products

    • Laird’s Jersey Lightning
    • Laird’s 10th Generation Apple Brandy
    • Laird’s Blended Apple Jack
