A distillery founded in North Brooklyn on the concept of experimenting with wormwood in spirits. Made in small batches in a hand-made still, Standard Spirit uses a grain column distilling technique. The standard of the distillery: pushing the boundaries of classic liquors by integrating wormwood into its spirits. All grains are grown organically in upstate New York.
Their first product is a one-of-a-kind wormwood spirit that departs from traditional absinthe, Oak & Rye Wormwood: a wormwood rye. Made from fermenting a rye and corn mash on the grain, single distilling with a wormwood backset through our copper ‘grain in column’ still, and finally aging with both American and French oak staves.
