In lieu of a preface…

A sailor, an avid hunter and fisherman, in short, a man’s man, Valentin Ivanovich knew a little something about distilling, putting his heart into this process to get every recipe just right.

Once his friends got a taste of his white whiskey, they would long remember its soft grain notes and floral aftertastes.

Valentin Ivanovich passed away in 2017. While sorting through his belongings, his grandson found a notebook with recipes for these drinks, which we now want to bring to you!

Today marks the end of a long process of setting up a distillery to produce these craft alcoholic beverages. The road from the idea’s inception to its realization has been a tough one. This website is the culmination of that work.

We’re just getting started and know there’s still a ways to go. You can share in our successes and struggles alike by following our Instagram https://www.instagram.com/grandpasspirit
