A new vintage of Creekbend Brandy is here! Our collaboration with Bloomington’s famed Oliver Winery is crafted entirely with Catawba grapes grown at Oliver Winery’s Creekbend Vineyard. It's a Bloomington brandy through and through!
Creekbend Brandy, vintage 2016, was distilled and aged in toasted oak barrels at Cardinal Spirits. Our first release of this special spirit was in 2018, and we expect it to be an annual affair!
Catawba grapes are the prize pick of the vineyard in our part of the Midwest. And this is how we celebrate them: by distilling a world-class brandy that can be enjoyed neat or in cocktails.
Bottles (750ml, $35) will be available first at the distillery, where you can also try the brandy in these cocktails on the menu now:
Brandy Old Fashioned: Creekbend Brandy • Flora • Angostura & orange bitters
Backseat Driver: Creekbend Brandy • Valencia Triple Sec • passion fruit • lemon
