Koval distillery (Est. 2008) represent an interesting project in micro distillation. Founders, Robert and Sonat Birnecker, gave up academic careers to bring the distilling traditions of Robert's Austrian grandfather to America. Five organically grown grains (Rye, Oat, Wheat, Millet, and Spelt) are harvested locally for distillation into single grain whiskies. The company has also ventured into an eclectic range of liqueurs.

Tasting note: Bright burnished copper in the glass with a slight viscosity. An attractive rose petal top note hovers above deeper scents of nutmeg, raisin cake and confectionary. A soft and silky entry continues with quince jam and dilute honey flavours. Creamy texture. This fades a little abruptly, nevertheless, the originality of the nose will make for an alluring contribution to cocktails. Certified organic. 20% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... Slightly hazy amber orange color. Interesting aromas of baked apple, raisin, and gingerbread crust have a delicate white nut note and follow through on a soft, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with vibrant mincemeat flavors and a tangy rosehip and eucalyptus honey accented fade. An intriguing pie-like confectionary treat for artisan cocktails.
