Handcrafted small batch liquor
Creative formula development
There’s a little something in each of us that finds satisfaction in defying the norm. So to honor that rebellious spirit, we chose historical icons who left a legacy by living life on their own terms.
Like the seductive and rebellious cultural rebel Josephine Baker, our “Eau-De-Vie” has a taste of its own. Uniquely flavored with apple, pear, mango, and sweet molasses gives it a smooth yet complex taste that defies the norm.
Eau-De-Vie is a French spirit that literally means "water of life." It’s typically a clear, un-aged fruit brandy with a light flavor that is produced by fermentation and double distillation. But Josephine isn’t your typical Eau-De-Vie. We've put our own spin on it and crossed it with a rum. We start by blending our own mash with wine and then double distilling for an experience that some customers say they can “drink all night.” The best way to describe it is unbelievably delicious.
After WWII, during which she played an active role with the Resistance, she helped refugees and adopted 11 displaced and impoverished children from different nations. Through the 60s, she spent her time and fortune on numerous humanitarian efforts and the Civil Rights movement.
He defied death on several occasions throughout his life: being trapped in an avalanche during a dogsled exploration across Greenland and being imprisoned as a Jew and sentenced to death during WWII.
Inspired by the Danish Arctic explorer, Lorenz Peter Freuchen, our cinnamon rum is creatively crafted to deliver a unique taste for those who are looking for something new. Vapor infused with organic cinnamon, vanilla bean and sweet table molasses embodies a flavor that quickly becomes a crowd favorite.
Yeast makes a huge difference when it comes to flavor. In our Lorenz product, we use two different kinds of yeast to create a smooth, rich taste. To make it even more unique, we use a gin basket (typically used to infuse gin) to infuse the blended flavors into our rum. We use a triple distillation process, just enough but not too much to compromise flavor.
Fine Aged French Armagnac meets Spicy American Rye Whiskey
Two unique things coming together to form something better is not a new idea; sides of a coin, mind & body, black & white, and like the bottle in front of you - American Rye & French Armagnac.
At first it might seem strange but, as you think about the possibilities, it grows on you. Where individually they are potent & bold, together they are complementary & smooth. Whether you prefer to drink René straight, on the rocks, or blended in a cocktail you can’t help but wonder how nobody considered this before.
René Cassin- This Rye-magnac could only be named after a person who embodied the idea of duality. René Cassin was a soldier who won the Nobel Peace prize. His story and history made him an honored leader of human rights and we can only wonder how nobody ever considered that before.
So share a glass of this Rye-magnac, this René, with a friend. Contemplate the flavor blending from two unique sources. Let the goodness of this blend of French & American spirits make you a better person. Take your past, like René, and parlay it into a better future.
