FARMING: With decades of experience in the world of fine wine, we bring to Branchwater what we have learned from visionary and iconic winemakers around the world. Winemakers often say that “wine is made in the vineyard, not in the cellar,” and they claim that you cannot improve in the cellar what you have harvested from the vines. We couldn’t agree more when it comes to grains and the ultimate impact that farming has on the quality of our spirits.
FERMENTATION: Fermentation is the most stressful part of the process because it is the time when nearly everything in the barn is running, from the steam generator to the mill to the pumps. The goal is the successful conversion of starch into fermentable sugars, without oxidation, into a clean and stable wort that can be fermented and ultimately distilled. It is the part of the process that few distillers talk about, but it is critical to the final quality of the spirit. You cannot fix a bad fermentation in the distillery; you can only intensify it.
DISTILLING: Triple distilled from wheat grown on the farm using a copper distillation equipment designed by the highly lauded Austrian master distiller, Hans Reisetbauer, and fabricated by Christian Carl, the oldest distillery producer in Germany.
