Crushing, Fermenting, and Distilling Apples
See our Facebook page for pictures of the process!
Believe it or not, we are still trying to catch up from the holiday surge. The cased goods corner of the distillery has some bare spots. We have several items in line to be bottled. This week we are bottling Pear Brandy.
Products out of Stock
Temporarily Out of Stock at the Distillery … Still Available in Some Stores
McCarthy’s Oregon Single Malt Whiskey is sold out here at the distillery. Our most recent bottling of McCarthy’s was in September, 2013. That batch (W13-02) has been shipped to retail stores around the country. Much of it has been purchased, but you may be able to find bottles at retailers near you or with online retailers. There is a bunch of whiskey still aging in barrels. The next bottling of McCarthy’s (batch W14-01) is schedule for Spring 2014.
If you’d like to be notified when the next bottling is approaching, please contact us with your name, location, and either an email or phone number, depending on how you’d like us to contact you.
Apple Brandy, aged 2 years, is out. We have some apple brandy in barrels that will be 2 years old in April and that is when it will be bottled and available again. Thank you for liking it so much that you bought it all.
Framboise is one spirit that we make infrequently and in small quantities. Because we use the authentic method of making eau de vie, meaning we ferment raspberries and distill the fermented fruit (as opposed to flavoring a spirit with raspberries), it is difficult and expensive to make. We need especially good raspberry crops. Those are the years we make it. Our 2013 batch of 33 cases has already sold out. You may be able to find a bottle at a few retailers around the country, but we have none left here at the distillery. And we aren’t sure when we will make it again.
