The Sugarloaf Cocktail is our variation on the “Treacle” cocktail created by London-based bartender Dick Bradsell. Our version substitutes Apple Brandy for Dark Rum. This cocktail is named for Sugarloaf Bluff on which the winery and distillery are located. The combination of apple and maple flavors create a delicious winter cocktail.
