“BERINGEI” is the scientific name shared by all Mountain and Eastern Lowland Gorillas. We are proud to craft an American Vodka from pure mountain water and quality winter wheat grain that captures the essence of BERINGEI. BERINGEI VODKA is distilled using a continuous column distillation process. The sweet flavorful character of winter wheat delights at every sip, swallow, and dare we say, gulp. We proudly source the winter wheat used in this supremely smooth vodka from Woods Mill, just 20 miles south of Charlottesville.

Charles Darwin said, “No other member in the whole class of mammals is colored in so extraordinary a manner as the adult male mandrills.” STRANGE MONKEY GIN is crafted on site in a dedicated gin still. We do not steep botanicals in bags, such as making a cup of tea. Gorillas don’t drink tea. We do not contract others to add gin flavor for us. STRANGE MONKEY is made the traditional way, through capturing the essence of our quality botanicals (juniper berries, coriander, anise, sweet orange peel, bitter orange peel, lemon, and almond) through distillation. Our recipe is traditional. Our gin is eminently drinkable. The winter wheat in this ground breaking spirit is locally sourced from Woods Mill.

The finest Rye in the global jungle can only be made from hand-selected milled grains, pristine well water and perfectly charred barrels. Our reputation for creating internationally acclaimed craft spirits means that we must distill and age a whiskey that can be sipped and enjoyed at any age anytime. Aged a minimum of thirteen months, our current batches are released at over 2 years old. You will enjoy notes of pepper and spice up front with a smooth, mellow finish thanks to the white corn and barley presence. So pound the table, thump your chest and raise your glass. BLACKBACK Rye Whiskey is proudly distilled in Virginia for all simians worldwide. Rule your nest, be an alpha.
