Frísco Brandy

San Francisco-based North Channel Distillery has announced Frísco, the company’s inaugural craft spirit distilled from wine made from California grapes.

Frísco is inspired by Pisco, the grape-based spirit native to Chile and Peru.

Crafted in San Francisco from grapes sourced from neighboring California vineyards, Frísco is double distilled on a copper pot still in small batches, followed by a charcoal mellowing – a technique rarely used on this type of spirit.

The result is a clean, full-bodied, delicately smooth taste, the company says, complemented by floral overtones and suggestions of tropical fruit.

Frísco is a 45% ABV immature brandy produced and bottled at Seven Stills of SF, a boutique distillery. Frísco is now available in a 750-ml. format for a suggested retail price of $35 in California and New York, with rollouts planned for additional markets later this year.
