We never throw anything away that still tastes great. ⁠

We reuse botanicals from our spirits to make kombuchas. Spent grain becomes miso, shoyu or are used to feed lucky chickens from a neighboring farm.

Eric Heilig (Head of Provisions) came up with Hot Sauce 02, made from the same Pasilla Mixe chilis we’ve already used for our Ayuuk distillation.
