Terroir is a French term often used in winemaking.
It translates to “earth,” and is the source of the word terrain. Terroir, as winemakers use it, includes the specific vineyard, year, weather, soil, winemaker’s equipment, and winemaker’s skill. At Sugarfield, these factors are also significant considerations in our spirit-making process.
Taste can be affected by the ground fruit was harvested from, even if the ingredients and distilling process are the same. The possibilities that can be distilled from a multitude of factors make us restless in our attempts to explore new flavors.
At any given time, you can find an experiment in the works in our Distillery.
