The New York Cherry Eau de Vie has a light nose with a gentle blush of cherry. The spirit is balanced on the tongue with a clean finish. It can be enjoyed as a digestif or as an added side note in a cocktail looking for a cherry element without the sweetness typical of liqueurs or Heering.

Angus MacDonald, Coppersea’s Master Distiller, has been studying the craft of fine spirit distillation for over 30 years, calling on a family tradition that goes back centuries. His quest to master this art led him to relationships with dozens of traditional folk distillers, becoming a keeper of this rare lore.
Angus’ goal in starting Coppersea Distilling is to put in practice his hard-won knowledge, and reinvigorate American spirits making with a return to its traditional roots.
