Greenport, Long Island -- Always dreaming up the wildest experimental spirits, Matchbook Distilling pushes the limits again with this smoked pineapple spirit. Based out of Greenport, New York, the Ritual Sister was developed during Covid times. A spirit to take your time with and sip slowly.
The long process started with a constant fire, 1600 pounds of pineapples were buried (in spiral formation haha) under the fire, dug up, fermented with Champagne yeast and then distilled. The process is reminiscent of Mezcal, but this spirit lies in an undefined category. Tropical, savory, spicey, smokey with a sleek texture.
