Fainting goats are an oddity in the animal kingdom. While peculiar, their rarity makes them preferred by farmers and breeders alike. A fainting goat isn’t concerned when it does things differently because its whole life is a series of ups and downs. They don’t let others define their species as a whole because no goat is created equal. More importantly, when it falls down, it always gets back up again. At Fainting Goat Spirits, we embody the spirit of this animal. We don’t mass-produce our spirits in a factory; we’re a small family of distillers who use their hands from grain to glass. Our 100% North Carolina USDA certified organic grains are crafted in house to ensure quality flavor profiles. In this way, we’re an oddity too. We’re not interested in what the other guys do. Instead, we want to create spirits that challenge the average and routine. Try one of our bottles and we think you’ll agree that our take on spirits makes us stand out from the crowd.

Emulsion_Gin

Coming Summer 2016

The words objective and subjective don’t normally unite. However, in the kitchen, these words are put into practice every day and a perfected recipe depends on their union. After all, a recipe is equal parts ingredients and ability. Emulsion American Gin is the result of three handcrafted gins combined into one, bringing together profiles that don’t normally bond. Instead of choosing only one, we decided to write our own recipe that complimented all three of their prominent and hand selected culinary flavors. After countless hours, we perfected the blend inside every bottle of Emulsion American Gin. The twist with our gin is that it can both be enjoyed alone or in a cocktail, perfect for those who seek a versatile elixir.

The Objective Spirit for the Subjective Palate

Tiny_Cat_bottle

Coming Summer 2016

Each night, a cat silently hunts through the jungle. Her confidence and precision are unmatched in the kingdom; she’s the ghost of the forest. She’s often ignored because to most, she’s “out of sight and out of mind.” Just because we don’t see something doesn’t mean it’s not there. Her speed and grace make her superior, however she doesn’t underestimate the art of stealth. Light and discrete movements disguise her presence in hiding, but she’s been right in front of you the entire time. We created our Tiny Cat Vodka to capture the essence of her hunt. The process starts with organic grain sourced only from the North Carolina soil in the historical foxfire fog, hidden in plain view. Our vodka is then patiently double distilled through a 16 plate copper vodka column for a soft and subtle flavor. But be warned, this crisp and clean spirit will catch you off guard as its roar can barely fit in the bottle. We wanted our vodka to appear simple in style, but grab even the most experienced flavor connoisseur by the tongue.
