Jeptha Creed Distillery was a means to keep the Nethery Farm going, a continuation of their family heritage that’s been going strong since the 1700s. The biggest distilleries in the country were once family-owned enterprises and the only difference between Jeptha Creed and them is that they want to remain a family-owned, authentic enterprise.

The distillery is owned and operated by a mother-daughter duo, Joyce and Autumn Nethery. The family’s 64-acre distillery sits on approximately 1,000 acres of land where they produce almost all the products used to make their spirits. The Nethery family is committed to their ground to glass motto, if they can grow the products themselves, they will. Using only the finest, locally grown and sourced ingredients ensures their products meet the highest expectations for quality and flavor.

Jeptha Creed

Not only do they produce their own corn and fruits, they use old-fashioned methods to meet today’s demanding modern tastes. “Ne Oublie” is a Scottish Gaelic saying meaning “Never Forget”. Much like their use of old-fashioned methods, this phrase has been passed down through the Nethery family for generations. Jeptha Creed was founded on the motto “Don’t forget where you came from,” and they hold true to that to this day.

The distillery currently has their Vodka and Moonshine on the market and their bourbon is aging and will be available in 2019! Unfortunately, Jeptha Creed spirits are not available in Indianapolis, but they will be available to taste at Indy’s Premier Bourbon Celebration on February 23, 2018. Get your tickets here!

 

Grey Goose

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

“I didn’t approach this as stripping out the impurities – I never let them get in there in the first place,” said Francois Thibault, the maker and master of Grey Goose.

Grey Goose is made with only the finest of ingredients, that give the finished product the exceptional taste from which it is known by. Grey goose uses the highest grade of wheat grown in France; the same wheat that is traditionally used in bread and pastry making. After the wheat is transformed into a high-proofed spirit, it is distilled once using a continuous column distillation process, ensuring the quality of the wheat remains. The spirit is then transported to the Cognac region of France, where it is combined with artesian spring water that is naturally filtered through 500 feet of limestone, making it remarkedly pure for blending. Prior to bottling, each batch is taste tested and approved by Francois Thibault and tasting experts, to ensure every bottle is perfection. How can you make the most of your Grey Goose? We found unique cocktails you’re sure to love.

Ciroc Ten

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Early in 2015,  Sean “Diddy” Combs announced on Instagram the latest expression from Ciroc Vodka was coming — Ciroc Ten. Ten is made with a blend of the finest grapes, including the first harvest grapes of 2013. Vintners have said that those grapes were the crispest of the harvest.

ciroc tenCiroc was founded in France by Jean-Sebastien Robicquet.  Robicquet’s family hails from the wine-growing region of Bordeaux and has been in the wine business for 400 years dating back to the 17th century. He was approached by the Diageo to produce a vodka made from grapes as opposed to grain or potato common among most vodka. The brand was introduced in 2003.

In 2007, Diageo partnered with Sean Combs for a strategic alliance to manage all branding and marketing initiatives for Ciroc Vodka. Combs said he wanted to work with Diageo because the company understood that “I’m not just a celebrity endorser, I’m a brand builder. I’m a luxury brand builder.”

The nose is clean, mild, with a hint of mint. The palate is quiet, touched just barely with vanilla, and fading out with a clean, simple finish that has a trace of sweetness. For straight sipping, Ciroc Ten offers a straightforward and quite enjoyable experience.  It would also blend well naturally with just about anything.

Less than 10,000 cases of Ciroc Ten will be made available annually, and were able to secure a limited quantity. Use our contact us form to reserve your bottle of Ciroc Ten today.
