Micro-Distilling

 The one question we get on a daily basis is "What is Micro-Distilling"? Micro-Distilling refers to the amount of spirits a distillery can produce in one year. In this case its 50,000 proof gallons a year. Compare this to the top Rum distilleries that average 16.8 million cases a year. They actually spill more than we can make. So, basically we are a small two man operation. The beauty of a small operation is that every single step of the process is personally monitored by our head distiller.  

Batch Process

 We are a batch process plant, which simply means we run one batch at a time. We carefully select which fermentation wash gets transferred to our column still. We then concentrate solely on that one batch until its finished. This allows our master distiller to make the critical process cuts that make up our unique taste profile. At every step of this process we take samples of our spirits, checking for smell, taste and color. Because we use the batch process we are able to discard the foreshots, tails and make very strict heads cuts. Most big distilleries run whats called a continuous distillation process. This is where they continuously throw new fermentations into their huge 5-story column stills. Never stopping, never slowing down, they run 24/7, seven days a week. They rely on machinery to make process cuts and make flavor profile decisions. We feel this shows itself in the final product and we would never risk product over production.

Chavalo Whiskey

Chavalo Whiskey

Chavalo whiskey is named to promote the fact that this whiskey is a young whiskey. Chavalo is aged less than 2 years in used whiskey barrels. Most whiskeys are defined by their age, grain bill and their country of origin. Chavalo is made in house from a malted barley mash that is dominated by a 2-row Munich malt with a sprinkle of Black malt. We make Chavalo in very small batches that only yields about 70 bottles a run.

Tranquila Rum

Tranquila Rum

Tranquila Blanco Rum is made with pure cane sugar. Tranquila is distilled three times before the hearts cut of the run is separated out and sent to filtration. We then filter these hearts through an activated carbon filtration system. Last, we finish our rum with delicious purified Texas water.

Acere Gin

Acere Gin

Acere is a Cuban word that quite literally refers to an assortment of smelly monkeys. We loved this name because Gin is a spirit that is made up of an assortment of smelly botanicals. Acere is not a light Gin, it is packed with flavor and is a respectable 92 proof. We decided to use the re-distilled method for Acere, we felt like this gave us the most flavor and the best results with our botanical bill. Our botanical bill consists of Juniper Berries, Lemon Zest, Grains of Paradise, Orange Zest.

Terco Vodka

Terco Vodka

Terco Vodka is made from a base of pure cane sugar. We carefully select only the best hearts from the distillation and send them through our special charcoal filtering station. After the spirit is filtered, we then use pure distilled water to proof our Vodka to 80 Proof strength.
