Our Spirits


Black Vulture Vodka

Black Vulture Vodka is a small batch, hand crafted vodka distilled from locally grown corn in the Delaware River Basin. Our diligence to craft a premium vodka has brought us to what we think is fine enough to wear our bottle. With its smooth taste and ever so subtle sweetness it may very well make a straight vodka drinker out of you.

Wooden Leg Rum

Wooden Leg Rum draws its inspiration from Caribbean and Polynesian rum producers. This rum is crafted from a special combination of evaporated cane juice and black strap molasses. With its extra sweetness, the cane juice tempers the bold molasses flavor to produce a nectarous, smooth silver rum.

Dam Break Rye Grain Spirit

Dam Break Rye is our uncommonly delicious rye spirit made from 100% locally grown rye grain. It is called a spirit because it has not earned the whiskey moniker by spending some time in a barrel. Through a painstakingly slow distillation process we remove the undesirable harsh raw grain flavors, usually associated with white whiskies, to produce a uniquely clean and bold unaged spirit.

Small Batch Spirits

This Aged Rye is the first of many whiskies to come. Batch AR1-17 produced 135 bottles and we quickly sold out of the allotted 75 bottles for the public. We do, however, have some for consuming on premise.

This Rye is extremely smooth for being 90 proof. Up front you taste a harmony of sweet caramel, vanilla and honey, but finish with a slight peppery pop of the rye grain.
