arcane (not archaic)
Ar•cane (ärˈkān) adjective - understood by few; mysterious or secret. Our passion is to create unparalleled spirits while dispelling myths, setting records straight, and bringing a scientific eye to the tall-tales world of spirits. Instead of going down the superannuated "craft distiller" path, we're going to take the path less traveled and bring you along for the ride. If you are searching for copper pot 'stilling, "tiny craft barrels", old-timey marketing shtick, or "apple pie moonshine" then you've come to the wrong place. That's archaic - this is Arcane.
Advanced Machines (that make booze)
At the core of the Arcane Distilling ethos are our machines, and the science(s) that built them. We specialize in vacuum distillation, named so because it operates at greatly reduced pressures. Our machines operate at such high vacuum, that water can be boiled at room temperature. This particular process lies far outside the sphere of conventional distillation techniques so it requires specially designed, custom built equipment - all of which we are thrilled to create (seriously, over the damn moon!!) Our spirits are made by machine, but our machines are built by hand.
Nerds. Nerds run Arcane Distilling. Why nerds? Well, for one thing we don't stop thinking about making things better. Don't believe us? Distiller and engineer David Kyrejko's hobby is high efficiency heat exchanger design. When Dave's not playing around with pushing the ΔT, he's messing around with rotary evaporators, putting new spirits through their paces in a reactor, or pestering local brewers about distilling their weirdest beers. Why? Because, nerds are decent people.
