Our distillery is founded on experimenting with wormwood spirits. Early on, wormwood was an illusive banned ingredient, best known for its use in traditional absinthe. On our first distillation we fell in love with more than the myth though, the subtle lucid wakeful feel was unlike any other spirit. Unknown to us at the time, spirits with wormwood were nearing the end of a century old ban.
Only making small batches in our hand-made still and using a grain column distilling technique makes for a completely crafted method that we use to this day at our distillery in north Brooklyn. This gives our spirits a noticeable closeness to the grain that ties us back to the upstate farms we grew up around, the same region where we source all of our local organic NY grains from and grow our own wormwood. This is the standard of our distillery – pushing the boundaries of classic liquors by redefining and reinventing the craft of what wormwood spirits can be.
