Extracted from Apple Country Spirits
Apple Country Spirits (ACS) is a farm Distillery Located in Williamson, NY. We produce fine quality, fruit based spirits. It is a division of CELK Distilling, LLC. ACS was formed in 2012 by David W DeFisher, operator of and co-owner (with his father, William) of DeFisher Fruit Farms, a 4th generation, family owned fruit farm. ACS is the next step in assuring the continued success of this family owned operation. Beginning the value added production of high quality, fruit based spirits, all made from the fresh fruit we grow here on our farm, will keep this business relevant for the next generation, by providing consumers with a quality, locally made product. ACS has a strong belief in being environmentally friendly. We utilize most of our byproducts on the farm, so there is no waste products to dispose of. We have plans in the next 1-3 years to have our own solar energy system installed, to begin producing our own green energy. We believe strongly in supporting local, and USA based companies. 95% of all of our equipment, in the distilling/juicing process, is made locally or in the USA.

Our first, and flagship product is TREE Vodka. It is a super premium vodka distilled from apples. It is not apple vodka. It has a delicious, slightly sweet, distinct flavor, but not necessarily an apple flavor. As time progresses, we will be adding other flavors of vodka. Unlike many of the artificially-flavored spirits on today’s market, we use all-natural flavors in our product, based on the fruit that we grow. Other future products will include: Apple Jack, a distilled, barrel aged apple product, done in the same manner a fine quality whiskey would be made. Fruit Brandies, liqueurs, and other “secret” products that are being experimented with will be available soon.
