No charge for tastings

Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka
Boyd & Blair Potato Vodka is a hands-on labor of love: the liquor made from scratch, each batch tasted 20 times and every bottle hand-signed. Their equipment was custom-made in Germany, but the potatoes are brought in from a local farm. Each step of the distillation process is manually controlled by Young, who, as the former CEO of a pharmaceutical-services company, has a background in chemistry. Orr was formerly vice president of the Greater Pittsburgh Area Chamber of Commerce. The vodka was named, respectively, for Orr’s great-grandfather and Young’s late father-in-law — a familial nod that honors the concept of following one’s dream.

Hum Botanical Spirit
Hum is a 70 proof spirit it has a striking crimson red color from fair trade hibiscus, a peppery kick from organic ginger, heady aromatics from cardamom and the intoxicating fragrance of kaffir limeHum is created by soaking four incredibly rich botanicals (cold tea maceration) in our hand-crafted, pot still rum AFTER distillation and is then bottled unfiltered in order to help retain the full flavors and properties of the botanicals (which contain antioxidants, vitamin C, and digestives)
