This is a real American hero of a product, which has helped save a farming community who saw their market for their main crop potatoes, collapse in the 1970’s. A project to grow grain was started in 2005 originally to supply flour to the Islands hotel but developed into a craft brewery. This was so successful that the brewery expanded into spirits. The spirits sold so well they now have their own state of the art distillery and the farmers are growing a lot more wheat.
Deaths Door refers to the dangerous sea passage between the Island and the mainland where over 350 wrecks lie.
A surprisingly simple botanical mix of organic juniper berries, coriander and fennel. The juniper berries grow wild on the Island and the coriander and fennel are sourced within the State.
This makes a good basis for many cocktails including a proper dry Martini.
