Organic, delicious spirits.
U.S. organic food sales have seen large market growth for over a decade. We believe Americans care about the ingredients, chemicals, and processes used to make the food and drinks they consume. We also believe that organically sourced ingredients help produce a more flavorful, enjoyable product. These two beliefs pushed us to distill small batch spirits made from organic and gluten-free ingredients.
D&S Distilling is committed to only producing high quality, limited production spirits that consumers will want to drink. As part of that commitment, we have a 17 gallon recipe still to allow for the testing and perfecting of recipes before putting them in larger production. We're also committed to being a grain-to-glass distillery. We purchase the raw ingredients necessary for our recipes and distill each of our products in-house. We believe our process, ingredients, and recipes result in delicious organic spirits you can enjoy over and over.
Delgado & Some Guys Distilling Company
Why did we start?
Owner, Marcus Delgado, brought together some guys who all shared a love of good liquor. These guys also believed that the spirits market is ready for new and better products. With those foundational beliefs, D&S was born.
How are we different?
Made-from-Scratch: Sadly, in today's distilling industry, a large portion of the products available to consumers are actually GNS (Grain Neutral Spirit) or other bulk spirit options. That means that the distillery named on the bottle of your favorite product probably isn't the distillery that actually produced it. Instead, it was produced by a mass production distillery and then sold to and bottled by the distillery on the label. Some distilleries will take the bulk product and run it through their own still to try to give it a more unique flavor, but at D&S, we just don't think that's good enough. That's why we produce all of our products in house. We purchase the raw ingredients, cook and ferment them, then distill the mash, bottle, label, and ship all under one roof. The end result is a delicious spirit that you can't get from any other distillery.
USDA Organic: As if making spirits from scratch wasn't hard enough, we went a step further and were certified Organic. We believe the ingredients matter, which in turn means how those ingredients were grown, harvested, and milled matter too. Because of that, we are an Organic, Non-GMO, and Gluten-Free distillery producing a difference you can taste.
What do we produce?
D&S opened its doors with 3 product types: Rums, Moonshine, and Vodka. Anyone who knows our distillery knows we have 2 white rums. We know that seems a little odd, but once you taste them, you will understand why. We made our rums from 2 different sugars producing completely different spirits, one floral, the other nutty. In addition to our rums, we've made a moonshine that tastes like the backwoods shine of yesteryear and the smoothest vodka you'll ever taste. But we won't stop here. We will soon be releasing a light whiskey, barrel aged rums, flavored vodka, and much more.
Made from 100% panela sugar
Pot distilled, unfiltered, and bottled at 90 proof
Typical of Central and Latin America, panela is an unrefined whole cane sugar, derived from the boiling and evaporation of sugarcane juice. While most distilleries use molasses for their rum, we wanted to create a more unique recipe from high quality, granulated all-organic sugarcane. This spirit gives a intense, floral, and complex mouthfeel.
Cane Hollow Moonshine
Made from 50% corn and 50% sugarcane, unfiltered and bottled at 100 proof
For over a century, sugar and corn have been used to make moonshine in the hills of Tennessee. In keeping with that tradition, our heritage moonshine recipe uses mash made of corn and sugarcane. This spirit begins with a corn taste followed by the smooth sweetness of sugar and finishes with the kick that's expected in traditional moonshine.
Made with corn and oat
22 times distilled, unfiltered, bottled at 80 proof
While retaining the smoothness of traditional corn vodka, we add oat to change the mouthfeel of this product. Oats are used in brewing to thicken beers and make them creamier. This effect will be similar for the mouthfeel of our vodka, providing a creamy, velvety finish where corn vodka sometimes has a harsh bite at the end.
Made from organic sugarcane
Pot distilled, unfiltered, and bottled at 80 proof
While similar in methodology to our Delgado Original, this white rum carries a completely different flavor profile. Delgado White uses a more refined organic sugarcane producing a sweet, balanced experience.
