Caley Shoemaker | Changing the Distilling Game
As the Head Distiller of Hangar 1, Shoemaker puts her golden Midas touch on an array of spirits with the inclusion of everything from fresh botanicals to actual fog. In March, the company transitioned from Hangar 1 Vodka to Hangar 1 Distillery with the release of its first non-vodka gift to the world: Bentwing Brandy. Created by an exquisite blend of French and California grape brandies, Bentwing is then finished in charred whiskey barrels. The result is a brandy that’s the perfect slow sip as a nightcap or the refreshing component of a champagne cocktail that’s just in time for summer.
