Distilled during the winter of 1989, Brandy No. 89 is a classic. Opening with caramel, toasty vanilla aromas, as layer upon layer unfolds on each sip with notes of pear, jasmine & touches of dark chocolate. Well-balanced and refined, with a nice heat and spice on the finish.
Founded in 1983, Charbay Distillery & Winery is owned and managed by Master Distiller Miles Karakasevic, his wife Susan, their son Marko and his wife, Jenni. The Karakasevics are considered pioneers in the American artisan distillery movement – not surprising, when you realize that the family comes from a long line of distillers dating back to 1751 in the former Yugoslavia. In 2009, Marko became the family’s 13th generation of Master Distillers to work in the business. Based in Napa Valley, the distillery is located on Spring Mountain above St. Helena, California.
They produce a range of vodkas and spirits distilled in their Alambic Charentais Pot Still. Charbay released its first fruit flavored vodka in 1998 and Marko was promptly named a “Vodka Visionary” by Food & Wine Magazine. All of their fruit based vodkas are made with 100% organically grown fruit.
