Founded by husband and wife team Daric Schlesselman and Sarah Ludington in 2012 Van Brunt Stillhouse was inspired by the pioneering spirit of Cornelius Van Brunt who was a farmer in the Dutch colony of Breukelen and driven by Daric and Sarah ' s love of Craft. The team takes a time honoured traditional approach to distilling, sourcing wheat rye and corn directly from upstate New York farmers (the barley is sourced from Europe as Daric believes the quality is better than anything they can find in the US. They make every spirit from scratch in their distillery in Brooklyn using traditional methods with few modern innovations and their family of spirits gives a nod to classic styles while remaining exciting and innovative creating bold and flavourful products. As master distiller Daric brings a creativity to his recipes while working within the traditions of distilling fine spirits. He has developed a line of spirits that establishes his unique voice within traditional spirit categories.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye spirit is distilled from New York State rye, with a touch of malted barley. Aged in small, virgin white oak casks, the whiskeys are bottled unfiltered to preserve the maximum flavour and unique character of each batch.
Spicy on the palate with hints of coffee, chocolate, raisins & cherries, with a lovely toasted almond finish. The intensity of the grain works very well with the small barrels it goes into and after a minimum of one year the spirit is already full of cloves, orange fruits, spice, and raw vanilla.
