Standard Spirit Distillery

USA

Looking for: State Distributors

http://www.standardspirit.com

Originally distilling in Brooklyn for over a decade has shaped our entire process from mash to still construction making a truly original small batch handcrafted spirit. Our Rye & Corn Heartcut Moonshine is made from local NY rye and corn making a full bodied and smooth grain forward spirit. And our Rye & Oak Wormwood Craft Absinthe focuses on the essence of absinthe - wormwood. Unlike traditional absinthe, our wormwood spirit is distilled and oak aged to finish like a whiskey - no anise or licorice - bottling the heart of whiskey and the feel of absinthe. This is the mark of Standard Spirit Distillery, giving you something you won't find anywhere else by redefining what spirits can be and setting a new standard.
