Their production is small batch and hand-crafted for quality. Come in and “support local” by tasting their:

Builders Gin – a 92-proof gin crafted with 11 botanicals. Rosemary and juniper are in there, to give it that underpinning. The citrus and floral elements, the lavender, rose and meadowsweet, balance the combination.

Sons of Erin Irish Whiskey – imported Irish Whiskey hand-selected from the private reserves of Teeling in Ireland. Aged 4 years, then re-finished with short-term aging in freshly emptied Breckenridge Bourbon barrels to give it a light, sweet smooth flavor.
