ApplesRus is also a distillery! We have a variety of hand-crafted spirits made from apples. From our 100 proof moonshine to our dairy-free cream varieties: Apple Caramel Latte, Pineapple Coconut and more there’s something for everyone!

Our handcrafted spirits include dairy-free cream-based varieties such as Apple Caramel Latte, Pineapple Coconut and Key Lime Pie. Our 50 proof rums are great for sipping or to create fun, unique cocktails. Apple Crisp was the original creation and is a 50 proof rum sweetened with honey. It’s cousin, Atomic Apple, has the same base with cinnamon added. Visit our Spirits page to learn more!
