A local distiller endeavoring to make a product to rival French Cognac is finding an established home in a new tasting room in Atwater.
Ken Andrus of Fresno, owner of In Distill of the Night, will be serving Velvet Night Brandy alongside other liquors being offered at tasting room Sweet Potato Spirits when Atwater-based D & S Farms opens the location in October.
The tasting room will feature gin, potato vodka, rye whiskey and brandy where servers can spend time explaining each of the different flavor profiles before them.
“We’re talking about people enjoying an experience and more true spirit-tasting instead of slamming a glass of wine down,” Andrus said. “You’ll be able to see the different character of the spirits and why they have those characteristics.”
