Apricot Cinnamon •
Flavors (Cask A)
Wildflower Honey - Willamette Valley

Oregon's Willamette Valley is an agricultural cornucopia in one of the most fertile areas in the Cascadia bioregion. We use honey from this ecoregion derived from honeybees' pollination of mostly wildflowers and blackberry blossoms.

Apricot Rosaceae (Rose) - Prunus armeniaca

We source our apricots from the abundant Willamette Valley. Orchard grown and canned to retain flavor, we ferment with both the juice and pieces.

Cinnamon Lauraceae (Laurel) - Cinnamomum verum

This organic cinnamon comes to us by way of Indonesia. It would be great to find a local source, but alas, this plant is not fond of our Cascadian climate.

Spiced Rum Barrel Aged - Toasted American Oak

Our rum barrels are toasted American oak from Rose City Distilling in Portland, used to age a spiced rum for multiple years.

Our bioregional address:
