Award-Winning Wheat Vodka
Becoming popular after World War II, vodka quickly rose to become one of the most consumed spirits in the world. Although known to most as a neutral spirit, the Eastern Bloc Countries’ vodkas notably have a whisper of sweetness. Using 100% wheat, Crostwater Vodka continues that tradition. Being distilled and filtered multiple times also results in a clean, smooth finish. Mixed with anything, made into a perfect martini (clean or dirty), or enjoyed as an ice cold shot, Crostwater Vodka has a little something for everyone.
Award-Winning White Rum – 100% Sugar Cane – Non-GMO
Caribbean-style Rum is probably the oldest distilled spirit in the Western-Hemisphere with its history tracing back to the early 1600s. Although it eventually became widely known to be made with molasses, Holy Water Distillery takes the old approach to rum. Going for the cleanest and best taste possible, Crostwater Rum is made from 100% Non-GMO cane sugar grown in the United States. It is the Swiss Army knife of the product line: it can mix with almost anything or any flavor, stand on its own, make a small simple cocktail, or a large batch drink or punch.
American Distilling Institute certified craft spirit and Gold Winner of The Fifty Best NYC.
A gin unlike any other, citrus forward, clean and layered with a vibrant freshness, juniper, grapefruit, coriander, lavender, and angelica root. Approachable, with a honey-like sweetness on the tongue. Even the most hesitant gin drinker will be pleasantly surprised. Make a gimlet, and thank us later.
Caribbean-Style Rum with Natural Spices
Let’s be honest, most spiced rums taste the same: sweet and vaguely spiced. Just because that’s what you’re used to, doesn’t mean it’s what you should settle for. Crostwater wanted more. Crostwater likes to think of it as ‘rum, with spices’. They steep natural, whole spices and botanicals in their award-winning sugarcane-based rum, creating both the rich amber color and deep flavors, which sets their spiced rum apart. There are two distinct layers, with spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and then botanicals like orange peel and a hint of vanilla that make up the nose and the finish. Your taste buds decide in which order they hit you.
Caribbean-Style Rum Aged in New American White Oak Barrels
Crostwater Aged Rum starts with their award-winning white rum, which goes into a charred New White American Oak Barrel to take a 6 month nap. When it awakens, what once was a crisp, clean young rum emerges as a new complex spirit. It has a sweet, almost butterscotch like aroma, even though there are no added colors or flavorings. The taste has a hint of vanilla and sweet citrus. Although the smell is sweet, the palate does not overwhelm. With a smooth, slightly toasted or smoky finish, it has been said on many occasions that it ‘drinks a bit like whiskey’. Won a Silver Medal from American Distilling Institute – 2019
Aged Rye Whiskey
Danko Rye & Corn with a Touch of Malted Barley
Sourcing all their grains from local farmers, Holy Water Distillery is proud to continue the long history and tradition of rye whiskey production in Pennsylvania. Most people think big and bold with strong notes of pepper when thinking of rye…but not all ryes are created equal! You’ll still notice some pepper and nutty flavors in Crostwater Aged Rye, but a slight sweetness balances it out for a surprisingly smooth finish. The combination of Pennsylvania rye and corn, topped off with a hint of malted barley, results in a flavor that would make famed rye distiller George Washington himself jealous of what they’re pouring.
White Rye Whiskey
Danko Rye & Corn with a Touch of Malted Barley – Un-aged
The base for our Aged Rye Whiskey, the White Rye is a surprising spirit both in smoothness and cocktails mixing. There are limited quantities based on it being the source for the aged product. However, it sells quickly due to its unique and smooth flavor. There is nothing overpowering. Add an aging spiral, wait 6 weeks, and you can have your own aged rye. Look for it between barrel fillings.
Straight Bourbon Whiskey
PA Corn and Rye Mash and Malted Barley – Aged at least 2 Years
Super smooth and sweet caramel is what lingers. Smokey notes on the nose and the back of your throat. It is not harsh or bitey. Northeastern American White Oak gives the unique aroma and subtle tannin added to the distinct bourbon corn profile. This is what bourbon is supposed to be.
Cinnamon Rye Whiskey
Danko Rye Mash Corn and Malted Barley – Naturally Flavored with Cinnamon and Sugar
Rye Whiskey is an American Original. With the addition of raw cinnamon and natural sugar, a new Crostwater offering is born. Created by our staff and loved by our patrons. We hope you come to love this smooth version of cinnamon whiskey as much as our team and customers do!
