The Cider Farm’s distinctive apple brandy consists of a mix of true cider varieties modeling the traditional French Calvados AOC formulation. True cider varieties are like the wine grapes of apples due to their tannin and acid profiles. The Cider Farm apple brandy is aged for two years in charred oak bourbon barrels at Yahara Bay Distillery. The Cider Farm also adds to the barrel, wild applewood from their farm in Mineral Point, WI to create a unique profile. The result is a complex and distinctive apple brandy that reflects the terroir of its origin in the limestone soils of southwestern Wisconsin and the care that went into their certified organic cider apples and pears.

Two Birds Artisan Spirits is proud to partner with Yahara Bay to produce our signature spirit: Greyling Modern Dry Gin. Greyling is a contemporary American take on a traditional style gin. We start with a somewhat pared down recipe including the botanicals juniper, coriander, grapefruit and orange peels. We add a special variety of culinary grade lavender grown in northern Michigan to this mix. The lavender balances the acid in the citrus, provides a light sweetness, and gives a subtle floral aroma, which yields an approachable gin. Greyling can be enjoyed neat or mixed in classic cocktails. Find out more about Greyling and Two Birds at www.twobirdsartisanspirits.com.
Madison Wisconsin’s culture loves the combination of festive spirited gatherings with exceptional appreciation for high quality locally produced food and beverages. This concept, combined with the passion and knowledge of New Mexico chiles, became the inspiration for Mary’s Hot Bottom Vodka. By fire roasting these NM chiles and combining them with special spices, Mary’s becomes a true handcrafted, premium vodka, custom blended and infused to create an explosion of flavor.
Originally conceived as the perfect vodka for a spicy bloody, we have found it makes great Moscow mules, vodka margaritas, and many other fantastic twists on your favorites.
Domeloz produces premium spirits distilled from 100% honey. No grains or other sugar sources are used. We believe in the bees and aim to create a synergistic connection between the magic of the honey they produce, and the experience of imbibing a high quality spirit.
While Domeloz is not mead, we take the artistry of mead a step further by distilling it into a clear spirit which maintains flavors unique to the honey it comes from.
Not traditionally made, there is no consistent name or category for “a spirit distilled from honey”. We are choosing to call it SOMEL, and we hope it catches on!

WheelHouse is a recording artist group and a touring band out of Madison, WI. WheelHouse Whiskey, is their whiskey. It isn’t unusual for the worlds of music and alcohol to collide, it is rare when they match so perfectly. The down home flavors are evident, the aggressive introduction and smooth finish are legendary, and the dynamics are one of a kind. Like the four members of the band, the four grains of the blend (corn, wheat, barely and rye) all vie for your attention, but the sweetest tones are what you remember best.
