The brothers, Chris and Brandon, have said:

Aside from making great spirits, we love to work with our products in different ways to create fun cocktails for our customers. We work with local bartenders, do a lot of trial and error on our own, and of course, get the family seal of approval for all recipes. We hope our customers will enjoy these drinks as much as we do.
