Beverage Testing Institute Awards

We are honored to accept these incredible awards from the Beverage Testing Institute!

"Clear color. Earthy aromas and flavors of corn husk, cornbread dough, and raisin bran box with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, engaging, medium-long finish displaying notes of nut skins, creamed corn with white pepper, and honey bran muffin. A clean, grain forward moonshine with a nice creamy corn character that will cut through in cocktails."
"Clear color. Spicy aromas and flavors of juniper jelly, spicy lemon-zucchini muffin, and anise whipped cream on graham cracker with a silky, bright, dry-yet- fruity medium body and a tingling, delightful, medium-long finish with accents of citrus rind and peppercorns. A creamy, nicely balanced and understated gin for elegant cocktails."

MEET Our Awesome Team

These are the people working hard to make your experience with us, an amazing one.


The Master Distiller

This engineer, lawyer and mother watched a documentary about craft distilling back in 2012. A year later she was in a Whisky Workshop learning the trade and said, “why not?” So Kara researched and researched, did some hobnobbing with industry leaders, attended more classes, developed a business plan and started saving her pennies.


The Seasoned Businessman

Fate has brought Kara and Joe together to form the perfect partnership for the perfect business for them both. Joe—also a lawyer and a real-estate developer—started brewing beer in his kitchen. That pastime blossomed into a love of all things brewed. And he was pretty good at it too, as he is with everything he sets his sights on. One thing is for sure: Joe loves a good time, loves his friends, and is enthusiastic to share what he has with those friends, old and new. And now he has the place to do it.
