Charbay: Handcrafted spirits from Northern California
American Wines is pleased to announce the statewide distribution of the Charbay family of distilled spirits. The brand features small, handcrafted releases of vodka, rum, pastis, black walnut liqueur and whiskey. Charbay’s flagship fruit-infused vodkas taste just like the real fruit. Rind, pulp, juices – it’s all there.
A family business
Marko, following a classical European apprenticeship with his father, is the family’s 13th generation to carry on the tradition of winemaking and distilling. Marko’s vision was the catalyst for Charbay Vodka and Charbay Whiskey. His revolutionary style, using only 100% real fruit and tea has set Charbay apart from the huge world of flavored vodkas. Made only once a year when the fruit is ripe, making them “vintage vodka”, they taste “better than the fresh fruit they are made from” – Bon Apetit Magazine.
