In the true spirit of sustainability, we craft our own line of proprietary beverages that can be found behind the bar at Farmers Fishers Bakers. The FF Spirit Project, our Farmers Restaurant Group spirits collection distilled in partnership with Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, VA, includes our Founding Farmers Rye Whisky and Founding Farmers Gin, as well as our unique Farm Blend Pisco, created in collaboration with Macchu Pisco in Peru. And as no proprietary line would be complete without wine, we developed our From Farm to Cork® category featuring New York Vines White and Virginia Vines Rosé.

The first in The FF Spirit Project proprietary line, Founding Farmers Rye Whisky has been behind our bar since its creation in 2009 and has become a guest favorite. Founding Farmers Rye Whisky, created in partnership with FRG Beverage Director Jon Arroyo and Master Distiller Rick Wasmund, is made with smoked apple, cherrywood, and malted barley grown by farmer Billy Dawson’s Bay’s Best Feed in Heathsville, VA, just down the road from the distillery.

Founding Farmers Gin

Our Founding Farmers Gin is a unique single malt gin with a recipe perfected for over two years. Released in 2013, it is the product of our partnership with Copper Fox Distillery in Sperryville, VA. In keeping with The FF Spirit Project philosophy, all the barley for this spirit is sourced from a neighboring farm while water for the distilling process comes from a nearby stream. Botanicals in Founding Farmers Gin, many of which are grown on the Copper Fox Distillery property, include juniper berries, cardamom, anise, orange peel, ginger, angelica, and lemon grass.

Farm Blend Pisco IMG_2102

Our specially blended Pisco is a smooth, flavorful spirit created with freshly distilled Peruvian grapes. An ode to the glorious varieties of wines, ports, and brandies favored by our Founding Fathers, our Farm Blend Pisco is produced with Macchu Pisco in Peru, where distilled grape wine from the Pisco Valley was originally developed hundreds of years ago. FRG Beverage Director Jon Arroyo travels to Peru in order to select the best ingredients to craft our proprietary blend of this unique, quality spirit. Our Pisco embodies the elements our team cherishes most about what makes handcrafted spirits extraordinary – the wonderful melding of high-quality flavors, using only the finest ingredients.

New York Vines White

nyvines_02_kfNew York Vines White is our proprietary house blend white wine developed through our partnership with Brooklyn Oenology, a small producer winery that works to bridge the creative culinary, agricultural, and art worlds by crafting award-winning regional wines. Brooklyn Oenology’s concept was founded upon a similar approach to sustainability and high-quality production standards that we strive for, so our collaboration flourished though the blending and production process. This light, crisp, and refreshing wine is a delicate blend of 70% Chardonnay, 15% Riesling, and 15% Vidal Blanc grapes harvested in the Catskills and Upper Hudson Valley region of NY State. A great accompaniment to just about any meal, our white wine was created to be enjoyed year round.

Virginia Vines RoséBarnRose_02_KF

Virginia Vines Rosé is our proprietary house blend rosé handcrafted in Madison, VA with the talented team of vintners at Early Mountain Vineyards. We connected immediately with the winemakers at Early Mountain Vineyards as they are as committed to sustainable agriculture as we are. Evident throughout the beautiful, bountiful ecosystem they’ve created to preserve the natural correlation between soil, climate, and grape. Distinctly Virginian, our Virginia Vines Rosé is a refreshing, light, and balanced rosé developed to pair perfectly with our food offerings or enjoyed on its own.
