What Is a Craft Spirit?, Bronx, New York

The term craft spirit has become popular in the United States during the last decade. Depending on who you ask and who’s making the spirit, you might get a different reply on what comprises a craft spirit. However, most often the term is used to describe a spirit created by a craft distillery.

The term craft spirit implies that the substance was created in a small batch, by a small operation with high standards for the product. Typically, a craft distillery is responsible for every step of the spirit’s production — from recipe making to bottling.
