Corey Lake Orchards began producing spirits from estate fruit in 1998, making us one of the first farmer-operated distilleries in Michigan. Our farm’s founder, Rufus Dayton Hubbard, was born in rural Virginia during Prohibition, and perhaps it was a sensibility rooted in his upbringing that encouraged him to pursue his interest of making applejack, brandy, and eaux de vie right here in Michigan. Today, we offer a wide variety of liquors produced annually in small batches with utmost care.
Our trademark Apple Brandy is aged in oak barrels for six months to two years, giving it a rich, incomparable flavor and beautiful coloration. Other brandies – Bosc Pear, Bartlett Pear, Cherry, and Peach – are aged in glass and reflect the true spirit of the fruit from which they’re made. Our Grape Brandies are distilled from our Concord and Niagara grapes, and we offer both single-distilled varieties and a Double-Distilled Niagara Brandy for a clearer, brighter taste, as well as Grappa.
