Our distilling process takes longer than most and in our opinion tastes better than most!
We start by using natural ingredients which we source from New Brunswick farms to make our mash. The corn, rye, and barley mash is the base of our vodka. We then run it through our 400 litre still, which creates a vodka that is ~50% ABV. This is called our “stripping run”. To further refine the vodka we run it again through our still (200 litre), only this time we use 10 columns and bubble plates. This is the equivalent to “10 times distilled” and is called our “polishing run”. Finally we run all the vodka through our hand made carbon filter twice to create some of the smoothest tasting vodka. With all these extra details you really can taste the difference!
We start by using 96% ABV Vodka that gets put into our still with nine botanicals and gets left overnight to steep. Then before we turn the still on the next day we attach our gin basket that contains the same nine botanicals, but also creates a vapour infusion. This double infusion creates such a strong base that it needs to be blended with vodka after it has been siting for one month. The result is a 45% ABV London Style Dry Gin, with orange & citrus high notes and a lingering floral finish.
Using a process that is similar to the vodka production, we start with a corn, rye, and malted barley mash. Then after fermentation it is put into our 400 litre still for a stripping run. The polish only uses between 2-4 plates to allow a more full flavoured spirit to emerge. Then we put the spirit into our whiskey barrels which are a blend of new and old, and various char's. The final result is unknown until the spirit has aged at least 3 years to be considered Canadian Whiskey. We have however, been enjoying our "samples" ever since barrelling.
