1911 Spirits Gin - Spirits Worth Raising

1911 Spirits Gin

In 1911, George Skiff and Andrew Beak founded a 100-acre apple orchard in New Yorks Hudson Valley. At the time, the Hudson Valley, which extends from New York City northward through Albany, was home to thousands of farms, hundreds of which distilled the excess fruits and grains they harvested into spirits. As a result of the onset of Prohibition, however, these farmers were forced to abandon their stills.Today, Marshall Skiff, a third-generation farmer and master distiller, shepherds his family legacy forward at 1911 Spirits.1911 Spirits Small Batch Vodka is distilled exclusively from New York apples grown at the Beak and Skiff Apple Orchards. Once the apples have been harvested, they are pressed into a sweet cider, fermented and then triple distilled through 1911s copper still. "Its our apples, its our cider and its our vodka that comes off that still," says Skiff. "You can turn around and look at those hills and see the apples that made that vodka. Thats pretty unique."As a result, 1911 Vodka has a smooth vanilla taste, with undertones of apple and caramel. The finish is soft and gentle, and lacks the burn typically associated with most vodkas. "This vodka is smooth," says Skiff. "I call it dangerously smooth."1911 Gin is made by distilling 1911 Vodka with a unique selection of herbs and botanicals, including juniper, coriander, citrus fruits and Beak and Skiff apples. "We chose to use a light infusion of botanicals in order to allow the taste to shine through," says Skiff, " unlike most gins that use a heavy infusion to cover the taste."1911s Small Batch Gin has an elegant and well-balanced flavor profile, with notes of pine, juniper and vanilla complementing sweet notes of apples and citrus. The finish is long and warming, with a sweet touch."Our spirits have a genuine, natural flavor profile that comes directly from our family farm," says Skiff. Pick up a genuine vodka and gin today!
