According to the 1830 census, there were 53 legal cider distilleries in Morris County with four of them located in Randolph Township. Apple brandy could be distilled from hard apple cider making this activity an important part of the central New Jersey agricultural economy in the first half of the nineteenth century.
In 1869 the D. L. Bryant Distillery building remodeled and became home of "Bryant's Pure Old Cider Brandy" (a.k.a. applejack)
