Testing the proof of our Orange Liqueur. This proc Testing the proof of our Orange Liqueur. This process involves distilling a tiny batch on a lab still, separating the alcohol from the mixture so that we can accurately measure its proof without the presence of sugar. 
This is one of the many meticulous steps we take to ensure quality and consistency across all of our products, batch to batch.

Amaro Pazzo. In collaboration with @madcapcoffee, Amaro Pazzo. In collaboration with @madcapcoffee, a partnership that just made sense. 
The sourcing team at Madcap tastes thousands of different coffees in order to select the best of the best. Their process resonated with our approach “Take No Shortcuts” and the coffee used in Amaro Pazzo really helped to set this unique spirit apart. 
Tasting notes include: • Bitter sweet nose with deep coffee undertones
• Initial pop of bright, sweet citrus gives way to layers of bitter
• Finishes with bitter complexity and a balance of tropical sweetness, rich coffee and snappy citrus

Shoutout to our friends at @thebalasbrothers for this video! 👌
Another batch of our Michigan Cherry Liqueur being Another batch of our Michigan Cherry Liqueur being bottled for you!

Long Road Dry Gin Martini

2.5 oz LRD Dry Gin, .75 oz dry vermouth, lemon peel twist garnish. Stirred with ice. Strain into chilled martini glass & enjoy! 🍸
Jordon, one of our distillers, overseeing the “m Jordon, one of our distillers, overseeing the “mashing in” process. All of our grain is sourced from local farmers, and milled on-site. It’s then augered into the mash tun with hundreds of gallons of water. 
During this process, everything is heated up to help break down the starches and fermentable sugars before it’s cooled and the yeast is “pitched”.
It’s all part of the meticulous - Grain To Bottle - process. 
Respect the Craft. Honor the Journey. Take no Shortcuts.
The Double Strain No, not a cocktail name. We’re The Double Strain
No, not a cocktail name. We’re talking about the two strainers used in this photo!
Why double strain?
The Hawthorne Strainer catches all the bigger ice pieces, but the mesh strainer serves as backup to catch smaller bits of ice and any other ingredients that might get past the first strainer. 
Makes for a cleaner pour and presentation for your drink. Try it at home next time you’re making a cocktail!
