Big news for fans of hard spirits in Baton Rouge: the capitol city’s first local distillery since prohibition just kicked off its inaugural line of liquors.
Baton Rouge Distillery is putting its strawberry brandy on store shelves this week, marking the first time since the 1920’s we’ll get a taste of local spirits.
The fruit brandy isn’t just a flavored vodka, it’s the real deal. Owners and LSU graduates Ricci Hull and Natacha Krzesaj use real fermented strawberries to give the spirit an authentic taste, and they’re the only distillers in Louisiana who are making anything like it.
According to the distillery’s website, they will be releasing a line of bourbon soon as well.
