Equinox Sweet Potato Gentiane 2022

A mountain gentiane.
Smokey and textural, Equinox is a momentary sketch of the late autumn harvest.

 

Deeper Dive

Drawing on a French mountain tradition, our gentiane recreates a historically alpine genre with botanicals endemic to mid-Atlantic. Working with co-fermented base of sweet potatoes and hybrid grapes, Equinox reorients the gentiane genre to a southern Appalachian perspective.

 

Plays Well with...

Brandy, Whiskey, Old Tom Gin.
Use in place of Suze for a decidedly darker cocktail or add an ounce to your Old Fashioned.
