Ryan Hartshorn (head distiller) taught himself how to use the biproduct from cheese of his family’s business, Grandvewe Cheese. “I used to work on cheese [through the day] and then came home to research distilling for two years. I read about a place in Ireland using cow whey, so figured it out myself,” ”This is the first vodka in the world made from sheep whey, and the bonus is it tastes good and reduces waste,” he said.
Each Bottle is hand sprayed black before the label is hand written and signed by Ryan. Only 17-24 bottles are produced for each batch depending on bottle size.

Therefore, Upon tasting you are welcomed with fresh pear and golden apple. Rounding out with hints of wild spice, leather and mineral freshness to finish.
