Steven and I just got back from Valley Wine and Liquor, where we sampled the wares of DikinDurt Distillery of Herkimer. I had tried their stuff before, having visited the distillery and written about them for Mohawk Valley Living magazine. I want to bring Steven out to the distillery, but we have not found a chance yet, so I was happy he could have a chance to try their moonshine.
First we sampled my two favorites from when I tried them before: Toasted Maple and Mohawk Valley Fire. I described the latter as “cinnamony” in my article. Perhaps it is not a word, but I stand by it. I still think the Toasted Maple would taste good in coffee. However, I will not get to test that theory yet, because we purchased the Mohawk Valley Fire. I will let you know how that tastes in coffee, as soon as I find out. As a final sample, we tried the clear stuff, which I had not tried before. That was good too, but we preferred the flavored stuff. We must go to the distillery sometime, though, because I have yet to try the berry flavors: raspberry, blueberry, blackberry.
We had a nice chat with Elizabeth Stack, one of the owners of the distillery. She remembered me from when my friend Kim and I visited the distillery. She said they had gotten a great response from the article. That was nice to hear. We agreed that it was a great magazine.
