Single origin spirits.
They come from
materials that grow in the
ground. At its heart, spirits making is just another way to put leftover produce to use before it spoils. If a farmer has too many pears at the end of the fall,
she can ferment them and distill them rather than wasting the fruit she’d spent a year cultivating. Like a bottle of vintage wine or jar of pickles, a well-made spirit honors a certain time and place.
