Rhine Hall Spirits

 

At Rhine Hall, we focus on fruit brandies, a European-style brandy otherwise known as  eau de vie or schnapps. Our process starts with thousands of pounds of fresh fruit sourced from local farms, which is chopped, fermented, distilled, and bottled in-house. No flavorings, sweeteners, or neutral spirits are added to any of our products — each bottle contains roughly 25lbs of fruit and that’s it. This gives us a spirit that is not sweet, but embodies the essence of the fruit in both taste and aroma. 


RHINE HALL APPLE BRANDY  

 

We use up to 8 varietals of apples from local farms in Southwest Michigan in each batch of our Apple Brandy. A mix of sweet, bittersweet, and tart apples gives us a consistent and balanced product that is a true expression of apple.

RHINE HALL GRAPPA

 

100% of the grape pomace used for our Grappa is sourced from local wineries, however the grapes are predominately sourced from the west coast. We do not add sugar to the pomace — we simply add water to re-hydrate before distilling, giving us a smooth, floral Grappa with a clean finish. Grappa is a traditional drink in Italy.

There is a press inside the apple on this label, identifying the press used to make cider for this product.

Rhine Hall La Normande

 

La Normande is an American-style Pommeau, a product native to the Normandy region in France. We mix our Apple Brandy with fresh pressed apple cider and age it in bourbon barrels for roughly 9 months. The finished product is a rich apple cider with an Apple Brandy backbone. Various breweries use the resultant bourbon barrels to age their beers. 

La Normande was first introduced to co-owner, Jenny, and her husband, Taylor, when visiting the Normandy region of France.  'La Normande' in French means, "The Woman from Normandy," as a woman named Heloise introduced Jenny and Taylor to the process for making this regional Pommeau.
