Combine all ingredients in a large, non-reactive pot. Gently heat on low without allowing the mixture to boil. Cover and heat in this way, stirring occasionally, for about twenty minutes or until spices are fragrant.
Remove from heat and transfer to a heat-safe, resealable glass container; allow brandy to cool, then cover tightly. Store tightly covered in the fridge or any dark, cool place for 2 days or up to 2 weeks.
To serve, strain brandy and remove and discard apple slices, spices, and zest. Serve in a brandy snifter with a fresh slice of apple, if desired.
