UPCOMING EVENTS 9/28 @ 6pm-9pm: Jaquart Champagne Tasting 10/5 @ 6pm-9pm: Lanson Champagne Tasting WWW.THESALTNER.COM LITTY MATHEW – CO-FOUNDER AND SPIRITSMAKER, GREENBAR CRAFT DISTILLERY Greenbar Craft Distillery represents the world's largest portfolio of organic, handcrafted spirits, including BAR KEEP organic bitters, CRUSOE organic rums, FRUITLAB organic liqueurs, IXÁ organic tequila, SLOW HAND organic whiskey,TRU organic gin and TRU organic vodkas. But that wasn't always the case. When husband-and-wife team Melkon Khosrovian and Litty Mathew began making spirits in 2004, they used conventional spirits and local, hand-processed produce. Soon, their unique spirits won many awards. But Melkon and Litty couldn’t take all the credit. They learned their successes also hinged on some silent partners — the farmers who grew their ingredients. Several had moved to organic farming, resulting in more aromatic, flavorful produce...which led to more flavorful, aromatic spirits. Their minds were made. ORGANICS HELD THE KEY TO BETTER TASTING SPIRITS. Today, Greenbar Craft Distillery produces and distributes the world’s biggest portfolio of organic spirits — all made by hand with real ingredients. The environment also benefits because the company uses lightweight bottles, 100% recycled labels and plants a tree for every bottle sold. Cheers! TOURS + TASTINGS Love spirits?
