“Making whiskey is a process of extraction and purification to palatability whereas making brandy is a process of retention and concentration”
Whiskey and brandy are two different animals when it comes to aging. All our whiskeys are aged in new American Oak barrels and stay in that barrel for its entire aging process. Our brandy is aged using the solera process and is transferred from one barrel profile to another during its aging time.
French oak holds more tannins that begin to flavor and color the grape base, also known as eaux-de-vie. Hungarian oak holds fewer tannins and breaks down hemicellulose quicker. The deep colors and floral tasting notes are leached out slowly and more evenly to perfect our blend of white grape varietals. Both are more tightly grained and less dense than American oak that yields a stronger roasted flavor, perfect for aging our whiskeys.
We use a blend of Chardonnay, Riesling, and Muscat grapes sourced from Columbia and Yakima valley vineyards. Chardonnay grapes are known for their buttery flavors and aroma of apple. The Riesling grapes give our blend the tasting notes of crème brûlée and the Muscat have a distinct floral aroma of honeysuckle.
