Hudson Valley | Milan

Branchwater Farms is an integrated, multiuse farm in the heart of Hudson Valley, NY where Robin Touchet and Kevin Pike grow heritage grains for the purpose of distillation by way of organic and regenerative agriculture. They mill their own grain batch by batch, and never let the grist sit for more than 30 minutes before being transferred to the mash tun – to prevent oxidation and give the fermentation fruitiness. Fermentations are temperature controlled to preserve freshness and aromas and distilled as soon as they are complete using two 330L copper pot stills designed by Austrian master distiller, Hans Reisetbauer.

Branchwater Branchwater Pear Brandy

The inaugural release of Branchwater Pear Brandy comes from Bartlett pears grown in the Hudson Valley. Five tons of pears were hand-sorted and cleaned for quality, then crushed, fermented and distilled. This yielded 1,000 half bottles, which translates to 10 pounds of pears in each 375ml bottle. The resulting brandy evokes the sensation of biting into a perfectly ripe pear.
