Tasting Notes

"Fresh cherries are synonymous with Michigan summers, so Rhine Hall is wise to take advantage of their neighboring state's bounty to make a kirchwasser. A rich, red cherry aroma comes off the spirit, and the palate has loads of fruit, a hint of marzipan, and a slight medicinal note. It's an enjoyable spirit that puts Michigan cherries to great use."
