We have new and exciting things cooking here at the distillery. We just received a special shipment of red corn, white corn and blue corn (U.S.A!) and began cooking our newest product - Semper Fi Moonshine.
Semper Fi, is short for Semper Fidelis, which is a Latin phrase meaning always faithful. This corn whiskey is always faithful in paying homage to the earliest corn whiskies made in the American colonies and to the generations of Americans who have served in defense of the USA.
To honor the heritage of this all-American product, our Master Distiller chose to make this whiskey from red, white and blue corn just like the multicolored native corn used in the earliest American corn whiskies circa 1620. And let’s face it, what is more American than red, white and blue corn whiskey?
With remarkable flavor and exceptional smoothness SEMPER FI will bring out the patriot in everyone. A portion of the proceeds from Semper Fi will be donated to the US veteran’s charities. We will bottling at a strong 111.0 proof and it will be available this summer.
|Ascendant Spirits is the first distillery in Santa Barbara County to legally produce whisky, vodka, moonshine and other spirits since prohibition. Located in the heart of California wine country at the gateway to the Santa Rita Hills in Buellton California, Ascendant Spirits is flanked by the Terravant Winery on one side and Figueroa Mountain Brewery the other side, forming an ideal hub for the creation and enjoyment of the finest beverages.
Our impeccable new distillery is outfitted with handmade equipment that benefits from the culmination of hundreds of years of classic distilling knowledge. This equipment includes a 500 gallon American made copper still custom built to our Master Distillerís specifications. Unlike the mega-distilleries who churn out liquor on a factory scale, all of the spirits at Ascendant are patiently hand crafted in small batches by the Master Distiller utilizing the best American grains and as many fresh local and organic products as possible.
