Premium Crafted Vodka
100% PA Corn Vodka
Inspired by Vicki's Russian heritage, Crostwater’s Vodka is the origin story. Growing up drinking 'Holy Water', vodka is the spirit of Russia both figuratively and literally. Although only becoming popular after Word War II, vodka quickly rose to become one of the most consumed spirits in the world. Although known to most as a neutral spirit, the Eastern Bloc Countries' vodkas notably have a whisper of sweetness. Using 100% Pennsylvania grown corn, Crostwater vodka continues that tradition. Being distilled and filtered multiple times also results in a clean, smooth finish. Mixed with anything, made into a perfect martini (clean or dirty), or enjoyed as an ice cold shot as in Russia, Crostwater Vodka has a little something for everyone.
Award Winning White Rum - 100% Sugar Cane - Non-GMO
Caribbean Style Rum is probably the oldest distilled spirit in the western hemisphere with its history tracing back to the early 1600s. Although it eventually became widely known to be made with molasses, Crostwater Distilled Spirits’ takes the old approach to rum. Going for the cleanest and best taste possible, Crostwater Rum is made from 100% Non-GMO cane sugar grown in the United States. It is the swiss army knife of the product line: it can mix with almost anything or any flavor, stand on its own, make a small simple cocktail, or a large batch drink or punch.
Citrus Forward - American Contemporary Style
Everyone took that first sip of gin out of dad's liquor cabinet when they were young, and made 'that face' when they realized it tasted like a Christmas tree! But this is not your dad's gin. They do have plenty of Juniper in their botanical blend, but to balance out that classic pine-y flavor they add lots of citrus - grapefruit, lemon, orange, lemongrass. Combined with the rest of their botanical blend, the result is a refreshing contemporary style gin that has been converting even the most steadfast non-gin drinkers.
Caribbean Style Rum with Natural Spices
Let's be honest, most spiced rums taste the same: sweet and vaguely spiced. Just because that's what you're used to doesn't mean it's what you should settle for. Crostwater wanted more. Crostwater likes to think of it as 'Rum, with spices'. They steep natural, whole spices and botanicals in their award-winning sugarcane based rum, creating both the rich amber color and deep flavors which sets their spiced rum apart. There are two distinct layers, with spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and then botanicals like orange peel and a hint of vanilla that make up the nose and the finish. Your taste buds decide in which order they hit you.
Caribbean Style Rum Aged in New American White Oak Barrels
Crostwater Aged Rum starts with their award winning white rum, which goes into a Charred New White American Oak Barrel to take a 6 month nap. When it awakens, what once was a crisp, clean young rum emerges as a new complex spirit. It has a sweet, almost butterscotch like aroma, even though there are no added colors or flavorings. The taste has a hint of vanilla and sweet citrus. Although the smell is sweet, the palate does not overwhelm. With a smooth, slightly toasted or smoky finish, it has been said on many occasions that it 'drinks a bit like whiskey'
PA Grown Rye & Corn with a Touch of Malted Barley
Sourcing all their grains from local farmers, Crostwater Distilled Spirits is proud to continue the long history and tradition of rye whiskey production in Pennsylvania. Most people think big and bold with strong notes of pepper when thinking of rye...but not all ryes are created equal! You'll still notice some pepper and nutty flavors in Crostwater Aged Rye, but a slight sweetness balances it out for a surprisingly smooth finish. The combination of Pennsylvania rye and corn, topped off with a hint of malted barley, results in a flavor that would make famed rye distiller George Washington himself jealous of what they're pouring.
