winery and analysis blog assignment

I went to Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery, Visitor Center, and Restaurant, which located at 320 14 Grist Mill Lane, Gardiner, NY 12525 for my winery and analysis blog assignment. We drive for about 2 hours to attend this winery.

Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery is a whiskey winery that first used the distillation technology in the US. This winery use fruits and grains as raw materials, and without pigmented and flavors, it taste different with scotch whiskey. The whiskey make by Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery are contains a lot of raw materials, the wealth of raw materials makes the wine taste more mellow.

Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery is co-operation by Ralph J. Erenzo and his partner Brian Lee. Ralph J. Erenzo established the first distillery in 2001. But the winery was not operating very well until Brian Lee join in on 2004. Now, Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery is developing into a winery that can brewing whiskey, vodka and gin, and brandy instead of the one production line at the beginning.

Brandy in France is brewing with grapes but in this winery is brewing with apple. The raw materials of Scotch whiskey are wheat, yeast and water. But the special climate and the soil characteristics of the land make the harvest of the corn is more than the wheat, therefore the raw material of the whiskey are use the corn instead the wheat.

Fermentation after heated the polenta, the starch into the corn will change into the simple sugars. After fermentation for 4-5 days, it will have 10% of alcohol and then put them inside the distillation apparatus to repeatedly purification. We tasted the liquid that are purify, I feel kind of sweet, and can feel the smell of corn.o QQ图片20151202230613 QQ图片20151202225633 QQ图片20151202225630 QQ图片20151202225626 QQ图片20151202225622 QQ图片20151202225616
