New Products in the Tasting Room and a Classic Warm Weather Recipe

April 12, 2016

Last month, on March 12th, a dismal and rainy Saturday morning, we released our very first tasting room exclusive product, a single barrel of Cask Strength Straight Rye Whiskey! We harvested and bottled it the very same morning of the release. The proof came out even higher than anticipated at 115.6! Despite the dreary weather, we had a great turnout for the limited edition product. We still have a small quantity available for purchase but supplies are running low so stop by soon!


We have just added another new product available for purchase at the Spirit Works Distillery tasting room, our 200ml gift packs! We originally released these right before the holidays and quickly sold out of our stock. We're excited to report that thanks to an amazing group from our volunteer bottling list, we had a packaging party earlier this month and assembled about 1,000 gift packs! Each one includes a 200ml bottle of our Vodka, Gin, and Sloe Gin as well as a tasting sheet and recipe card for cocktails to try at home.Speaking of cocktails to try at home, spring has arrived and warmer temperatures are sure to follow. For those warm weather days, we recommend (as does Chilled Magazine) the classic Sloe Gin Fizz. Chilled Magazine says "A frothy, tangy, lightly sweet Sloe Gin Fizz is foolproof for backyard gatherings, sun soaked brunches and the evening cocktail." Versatile and delicious, what's not to love about that?Cheers!

Sloe Gin Fizz


  • 2 oz. Spirit Works Distillery Sloe Gin
  • 1 oz. Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
  • Egg White (Optional, but Recommended)
  • Soda water (we love Bette Jane's Club Soda)

Preparation:Combine sloe gin, lemon, simple syrup, and egg white into cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake and strain into fizz glass and top with soda water. Release the oils of a lemon peel over the cocktail as a garnish. Discard the lemon peel.
