Make definitive American brandy influenced by American whiskey and American music. Brandies are batch distilled exclusively in copper pot-stills, are non-chill filtered, with no added sugar, boisé (powdered oak, shavings or infusion) other flavors, synthetic chemicals or caramel colorants for an uncorrupted, authentic, natural flavor, nose and color. They have a rooftop bar, Alex&nders, that has another incredible view of downtown. Delicious cocktails made from their own brandy, but also have some beer, wine, and champagne options if you're not into brandy.
