Every spirit we create is hand tended with meticulous attention to detail in small batches of 53 gallons. It allows us to bring out the desired flavors and cut out the off-flavors in the heads. We taste each batch multiple times and make changes as necessary to aspire to near-perfection.
“You can put a personal touch to distilling from the ingredients you choose all the way down to the kind of water you use.” Harrison Hyden – Beverage Consultant
Guests can experience our creations from distillation to bottle to glass because all of the distilling and bottling takes place in our Baxter Avenue Facility.
We hope locals from Kentucky and Indiana especially appreciate the names we chose for the release of our first four spirits as each is a nod to popular Louisville neighborhoods.
“Born in Mexico, Raised in Kentucky!” as we like to say, this better-than-tequila Reposado is 100% Blue Agave brought across the border from Jalisco into the United States then aged in Bourbon barrels. We jumped through regulatory hoops thrown at us from two countries for nearly two years to bring the Agave Spirit home to Louisville. You’ll discover that NULU™ has more life and depth-of-character after resting happily in bourbon barrels than in its original form. We thought the name was perfectly suited for a spirit that was so unique and new to Kentucky that it should be named after “New Louisville” AKA “NULU™”.
The main ingredient, the juniper berry, is primarily grown in the highlands of Scotland. We mix juniper, coriander, pepper corn, orris, Tangelo and 9 more botanical ingredients that all contribute to a collective flavor of our awesome gin.
With a softer juniper berry flavor than what is usually associated with gin, you’ll enjoy it on the rocks or mixed. This carefully crafted recipe earned a Gold Medal in its very first release!
The phoenix is a symbol of rebirth from the ashes of the past and represents the victory of life. Like the phoenix, our Vodka arose from the flames to superior quality and taste. We mix cane sugar, pure limestone water, Kentucky sourced yeast, and a hing of lemon citrus to make this pure tasting vodka.
With more personality than many vodkas found on the market, Phoenix Hill was also given a gold medal. It can easily be enjoyed as a stand-alone spirit. Phoenix Hill is filtered 8 times with a hint of citrus, velvety smooth. Try it solo. We’re confident, you’ll be delightfully surprised
The Carribean Islands created rum in the 17th century. Combining the best blackstrap molasses and cane sugar with Kentucky’s limestone water creates a deep, rich flavor with warm notes of caramel and vanilla that shine through.
