Local Ingredients

Here at NOLA Distilling, our process is simple: create quality spirits for people who enjoy the art of drinking. We know that creating the best, highest quality product starts with the ingredients that go into them. That’s why we use only the highest quality and, when possible, locally sourced ingredients.

We believe in sourcing locally grown ingredients because we believe in supporting the local economy and helping to create sustainable agriculture in our community. All enzymes and yeast used in production are also non-GMO.

All of NOLA Distilling’s products are made from grains and sweet potatoes at our facility on Tchoupitoulas Street. And, much like our sister company NOLA Brewing (located less than a mile away) the first step in distilling spirits is to create a mash. Creating a mash is the simple process of taking our fresh grains and sweet potatoes, adding water and heating it up.Then we strain the sweet water that results (called wort) into our kettle, where it is boiled, allowing enzymes to breakdown the starches into sugars.

Once our boil is completed we add carefully selected yeasts to process the wort. The yeast eats the sugar and converts it into alcohol and carbon dioxide. This process can take anywhere from three to five days.

It’s time to run the fermentation through our copper, 16-plate still. We heat up the still to the boiling point of alcohol so that it turns into a vapor and can be easily separated from the other products in the fermentation. Our products are each distilled differently, allowing us to create unique and delicately flavored products.

Our vodka is distilled to get a pure, smooth flavor and powdery, fresh aroma.

Maturation

Some things really do only get better with age. That is why we will be cask aging our Vodka and Gins for special releases of more intense, complex versions that true aficionados can enjoy. All of our whiskeys will be aged until they have reached the perfect blend of wood aging and smoothness. Our whiskey products are aged in American white oak barrels that have been charred on the inside.
