NZ’s Best Brandy, Again!

ELSEWHEN Applejack 2018 with Silver Medal and ELSEWHEN Singularity 2017 with Gold Medal and Trophy

ELSEWHEN Applejack has just won Best Brandy in New Zealand and Overall at the 2023 New Zealand Spirits Awards ( p.10) for the second year running.

Following on two medals and two trophies in the 2022 New Zealand Spirits Awards, now 2018 ELSEWHEN Applejack has won a Silver, and 2017 ELSEWHEN Singularity Single Cask has brought home a Gold and another set of trophies for Best in New Zealand and Best Overall in the Brandy category.

Both of our current releases won awards. ELSEWHEN Applejack MMXVIII (2018) is 100% apple cider brandy aged for at least three years in charred oak barrels for smooth rich caramel flavours and a full textured long finish. ELSEWHEN Singularity MMXVII (2017) is a single cask expression of the ELSEWHEN Applejack, that is aged a bit longer and bottled a bit stronger for another level of intensity.

People in New Zealand increasingly want to support local creativity and produce. By using fantastic local apples and creating something unexpected, these Applejacks give Kiwis something they can celebrate.

And now with back to back wins in the NZ Spirits Awards blind judging, ELSEWHEN is showing that New Zealand is ready for the unexpected.
