While awaiting the arrival of our new copper still, we have been working with two Wisconsin rectifiers to distill our wines into brandy. You see, a winery can age, but cannot sell spirits. Some of these barrels have been secretly stored in the old spaces above our bottling line since 2016. We’re told these 120 year-old rooms are more haunted than the original winery. Seems right.

We received our state rectifier’s permit in the spring of 2023. That means it’s time to release the liquid spirits; the others can stay put.

We now offer five spirits in our Cider and Spirits Bar.

Bourbon Whiskey: Aged 4 years, 45% ABV (90 Proof), 750ML, $46/btl

Rye Whiskey: Aged 4 years, 45% ABV (90 Proof), 750ML, $46/bottle

Cherry Brandy: Aged 1 year, 40% ABV (80 Proof), 375ML, $36/bottle

Apple Brandy: Aged 3 years, 40% ABV (80 Proof), 375ML, $36/bottle

Grappa: Aged 4 years, 40% ABV (80 Proof), 375ML, $36/bottle

You can purchase them to go, try them in a flight, or taste them in one of our new cocktails.

As of this time, our spirits are only available for sale in Algoma at both the winery, and cider & spirits bar.
