EXPLORE OUR SPIRITS
At Hinterhaus Distilling we create our spirits using thoughtfully sourced, high quality ingredients. Our open fermentation, along with the use of local Sierra Nevada water, captures the character of our mountain surroundings while our climate and elevation nurtures unique aging attributes. This results in a provenance and sense of place that you can nose and taste.
NORTH GROVE VODKA
40% ALC./VOL. | 80 PROOF | 750ML
Award Winning Vodka Distilled from
100% California Wine
Whoever said vodka has no unique qualities never enjoyed the rich flavor of a quality bottling. We start by using 100% California wine that runs over our 20 plate column still. Using only our fresh Sierra Nevada mountain water, we keep our vodka unadulterated and completely free of additives and sugars so that it can be enjoyed in the manner most appreciated by its taster. Pay close attention to its cotton candy-like aromas and creamy mouthfeel before adding it to your favorite cocktail.
SOUTH GROVE GIN
42% ALC./VOL. | 84 PROOF | 750ML
Vapor infused using botanicals native to our Sierra Nevada home:
Juniper, Gooseberry, Rose Hips, Elderflower, Ginger Root
Named for the famed grove of giant sequoia trees that thrive just miles away from Hinterhaus, we distill our gin using fresh Sierra Nevada water and 100% California grapes. Vapor infusing botanicals native to our region, our methodical process retains delicate floral aromas with an opulent palate that is equally at home on the rocks as it is in classic cocktails. Gently nose this gin while taking a breath in and enjoy the scents of the mountains in spring before allowing it to hit the tongue and envelop the senses.
CALAVERAS CASK FINISH
46% ALC./VOL. | 92 PROOF | 750ML
A Blend of Straight Bourbon Whiskeys Finished in
Calaveras County Wine Barrels
With complex flavors and natural presentation (non-chill filtered and no color added), our Calaveras Cask Straight Bourbon Whiskey is produced in small batches to reflect our unique region. We start by aging interesting bourbon whiskeys in traditional new charred American oak at our distillery's 4,000ft perch in the Sierra Mountains. We then blend the bourbons and nod to our area's robust wine region by letting the batches rest in a variety of local wine casks. With these distinctions, you can enjoy comparing and contrasting batches as you collect them.
AMERICAN SINGLE MALT WHISKEY
Whiskey Distilled from 100% Malted Barley
We distill this small batch whiskey using thoughtfully sourced, high quality barley of varying maltbills. Our open fermentation, along with the use of local Sierra Nevada water, captures the character of our mountain surroundings while our climate and elevation nurtures unique aging attributes. The result is an American Single Malt Whiskey with a provenance and sense of place that you can nose and taste. For detailed specs, including malts, maltster, casks and aging time refer to our batch listing or the back label of your bottle.
46% ALC./VOL. | 92 PROOF | 750ML
CALAVERAS CASK STRENGTH
SINGLE BARREL RESERVE
ALC./VOL. AND PROOF VARIES | 750ML
Every now and again a remarkable barrel of whiskey begs us to bottle it singularly without blending it with other barrels. We give these special casks additional aging time at our 4,000ft perch in the Sierra Nevada before plunging them into local wine barrels that highlight distinctive flavor attributes of the spirit. Presented naturally (non-chill filtered and no color added) and at cask strength, each barrel boasts a unique concentrated flavor profile that cannot be duplicated. We recommend you pick up our Single Barrel Reserve when you see it on our shelves as bottles are rare and profiles are exceptional.
Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Calaveras County Wine Barrels
49% ALC./VOL. | 98 PROOF | 750ML
Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Stout Beer Barrels
Aged 18 Years
When the opportunity for great adventure comes along, we don't shy away from it. Trapper's Oath is the result of one such chosen journey in which we worked with a Canadian rye whiskey that was aged extensively. Bringing the barrels to our Sierra Nevada mountain perch, we finished the whiskey in stout beer casks that originally aged our Hinterhaus Bourbon whiskey. As always, we present this whiskey naturally (non-chill filtered and no color added) to keep the integrity of this extraordinary rye whiskey.
43% ALC./VOL. | 86 PROOF | 375ML
Traditional Herbal Liqueur
Aged in Oak Barrels
Inspired by the 'kräuterlikörs' of Germany, our Owner/Distiller Nate was determined to craft this spirit and introduce it to American palates. Lightly enhanced with agave syrup, Anorak is both sweet and bitter. It contains 23 herbs and botanicals including cinnamon, cardamom, star anise, chamomile and more, and is traditionally served as a digestif following dinner. Spectacular when sipped neat around a fire, it's also a welcome addition to a winter's coffee or in lieu of bitters in any number of cocktails.
37.5% ALC./VOL. | 75 PROOF | 375ML
A seasonal exclusive released each winter, this lightly sweetened liqueur will transport you to the Alps for a little après-ski libation. Distilled for centuries in France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria, liqueurs like our Mont Esprit were initially developed by monks for medicinal purposes using localized herbs. They have long since become 'de rigeuer' at alpine chalets and cocktail bars. Mont Esprit's bright peppermint and wintergreen notes greet you immediately, while hints of cinnamon and juniper extend a symphony of flavors. Enjoy chilled on-the-rocks, added to cocoa, or combine with vodka.
