The distillery was founded by two friends: painter Aaron Sing Fox and writer/producer Daniel de la Nuez. They use only plant-based ingredients in their spirits. Their library of botanicals includes over 200 different types of herbs - roots and barks, leaves and flowers, and fruits and seeds - and from that collection, their spirits are born. They macerate in stainless steel tanks, use no artificial filtering agents or artificial colors, and the only sweeteners used are raw: organic turbinado sugar or raw honey from Upstate New York. Almost all the of the ingredients are USDA organically certified- the few that aren’t, have either been grown by small farmers without certification or wild foraged.
