Why Barrel?

December 3, 2014 Company News & Announcements

The tradition of aging whiskey in barrels dates back centuries, but where did this tradition originally come from? When was it that someone had the idea of putting alcohol in wooden casks to improve the flavor? It turns out that when barrels were first used to store spirits or wine, it was not because people wanted to add oak flavor to the alcohol. In fact, they had no idea that the use of barrels would affect the liquid inside at all.The use of barrels as a form of storage can be dated back to the Celts circa 350 B.C. The technique of bending wood was most likely borrowed from boat building and barrels were used because they were very strong and could withstand wear and tear. They were also able to be rolled around and stacked tightly. Barrels would be used to transport anything from liquids to metals to food that needed to be preserved, such as fish or olives. At this point, it would be a waste to get rid of the barrels so they were reused to transport again. However, you don’t really want your olives tasting fishy (or maybe you do) or your whiskey tasting of sulfur so a method of charring the inside of the barrels was adopted.

The Apple Brandy Story

November 5, 2014 Company News & Announcements

Many people know that our Apple Brandy was the catalyst for starting Santa Fe Spirits as a company. ​Our company's owners, the Keegans, live in an amazingly beautiful part of Santa Fe called Tesuque. This valley houses the tesuque river and is by far one of the most luscious and vibrant parts of our desert city. Now, in Tesuque the Keegans own an apple orchard and several years ago they began inviting friends over to pick and press apples, sending all of them home with more apple juice than they could hold. The idea to make apple cider and then distill brandy was born from the great juice they could produce from the New Mexico apples.

It’s Time for Creepy… Crawly.. Cocktails?

October 30, 2014 Company News & Announcements

Halloween is a time for ghosts, for vampires, for costumes, and lets face it... for cocktails.

Now, you probably don't want to be drinking blood this Halloween, but you can definitely still have spooky themed cocktails that will put you in the holiday spirit. Here at Santa Fe Spirits we wanted to take a look at some fun cocktails that we could put our own twist on while keeping them delicious.
