According to archeological evidence, Paleoindian campsites first appeared in Canada around 13,000 years ago. Quartzite tools, such as arrow- and spear-heads, mark these camping grounds. Our Alberta Campfire draws inspiration from these aboriginal people. We use a long-forgotten North American spirit, straight apple brandy, and slowly infuse it with freshly smoked apple wood. This old-fashioned style drink is lightly sweetened with an autumn-floor syrup made from clove, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and peppercorn, and joins cherry heering and monk bitters in the smoking jar.
