Just a few months ago we sealed our 11th batch of apple brandy and set it to rest in the barrel house. As years go by this crisp, clear spirit will take on the characteristics of it’s oak cask and transform into a warm well-rounded aged brandy. Luckily, with a growing appreciation of unaged spirits and a hint of impatience, we set aside a […]

Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser is crafted from our house-made neutral grain spirit, infused with tamarind, lemon zest and golden brown sugar. Inspired by author Andrea Wulf’s newly-released book, The Invention of Nature, this complex cordial is an ode to Alexander Von Humboldt’s travels through South America.
