Dogfish Head rebrands spirits program, new bottles ship in November

Dogfish Head has just relaunched their spirits line, now known as Dogfish Head Distilling Co.

The brewery has been making small batch spirits since 2002. A reoccurring question the brewery has received from its fanbase, asks when the brewery/distiller is going to grow the program and target a larger audience. This prompted Dogfish to expand the distillery at the Milton, Delaware location last year.

Now, the new state of the art distillery is headed by Graham Hamlett, previously of Flag Hill Winery and Distillery in Lee, New Hampshire. Spirits are created on two 500-gallon copper stripping stills and a 250-gallon copper vodka column, manufactured by Vendome Copper & Brass Works in Louisville, Kentucky.

With the relaunch of the brand comes three spirits- Analog Vodka, Compelling Gin and Whole Leaf Gin. The Gin uses whole leafs, and the continually hopped process much like how the brewery brews their IPAs.

Fans can expect the new bottles on shelves just before Thanksgiving. Plans are in place to expand distribution to other mid-Atlantic states in 2016.
