Ambrosia Liquor, MannCave Distilling Exclusive. 

This liquor stems from an idea that came about when speaking to Spruce Knob Maple (maple syrup manufacturer) at an event. We wanted to know what would a liquor distilled from maple sap would taste like, and could we do it in a way to preserve the essence of the maple, so as a distillery we started looking into the logistics of partnering with Spruce Knob Maple to obtain maple sap to ferment and distill. The fermentation of the maple was a slow process that took over 2 months with a very special yeast, once distilled the final product was something with a flavor we never expected, and despite what it is made from it is not sweet. Describing Ambrosia’s flavor is where words fail us, however, based on our customer feedback and our experience, it has notes of maple syrup and butter on pancakes without the sweetness if that makes sense.  As far as we are aware there is nothing else on the US liquor market like it in flavor and base materials, and there is certainly no category for it yet. Currently the only place to purchase Ambrosia is our distillery in Weston, West Virginia but we are working on that issue.

    More information:
    The SIP Awards are an international competition where spirits are rated anonymously by everyday consumers. The competition was created with the intent to allow brands to compete on a level playing field and to only be judged by taste without being influenced by big brands or biases. The SIP Awards are considered to be a reliable and respected measure of beverage quality ratings and allows consumer’s opinions to be heard. Pouya “Paul” Hashemi, the founder of the SIP Awards, has given smaller spirit brands an opportunity to grow and receive helpful and honest feedback from the industry’s consumers. The most impressive part about winning a SIP Award is that the consumer panel votes after a blind tasting, which doesn’t allow for any prior opinion or favoritism to exist.

Our Process
Our process for making spirits is very complex. With our goal of changing the way people think about spirits, we have tested and found ways to increase the enjoyment of the spirits without losing the natural flavors and smoothness.
Our Story
MannCave was started with a plot of dirt and a vision after a suggestion from a friend. We knew we had excellent water, a beautiful location and a good plan, so we set out to make things happen. Here you will find extensive information on how MannCave came to be, built primarily by the family through a lot of really hard work.
There are lots of really great pictures and the chronicles of how MannCave came to be. Starting in 2016, with shovels in the mud, more questions than answers and not a lot of money, this is how we built MannCave. The water mines, the water storage, the distillery and everything in between.
