Harvest Spirits 
Distillery is
located at Golden
Harvest Farms.

The Grout Family expanded their business plan with the production of spirits.  Distilled spirits made from apples, and barley for Whiskey are made and bottled here.

The Tasting

Eight spirits are
available to
sip & savor...

Peter provides an overview of the types of spirits we will sample.  Eric and I decide to skip Core Vodka, because we bought a bottle at the Troy's Farmers Market in May and love its smooth flavor.  

Let the tasting begin....

We tasted Cornelius Applejack, Rare Pear Brandy, Black Raspberry Vodka, Cherry Applejack, Peach Applejack.  Core Gin has Lemon Grass and Coriander, which mellows the Juniper Berry flavor. John Henry Whiskey is made with barley.  Decisions, decisions....

We bought Peach Applejack
Black Raspberry Vodka
Core Vodka, Cherry Applejack
& a six pack sampler.

Eric and I love the art of small batch distilling.  We enjoy sipping tasty liquors and sharing them with friends.
