Taste Edelbrand Pure Distilling's award-winning European-styled fruit brandies at Robin's Nest on the Katy Trail, Defiance, MO.

If you are new to European-styled fruit brandies, a world of nuanced flavors and aromas awaits you. Each of our six spirits offers a most unique sipping experience to be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Edelbrand vinars is a dry European-styled fruit brandy handcrafted for sipping and sharing, connecting and lingering with family and friends. From the instant you open the bottle, the natural aroma of apple, pear, plum, grape, apricot, or cherry tumbles out. Our Swiss distiller relies on tradition to create these exceptional spirits...small copper pot stills, patience with fermentation, and handcrafted excellence from beginning to the very end when the cork is put into place.

The smooth nature of these unaged spirits comes from a dedication to the art of small-batch distilling, revealing the best from luscious fruit mashes laid down months before. With less than 1,100 bottles produced this year, it is with quiet pride that we invite you to experience Edelbrand vinars. Edelbrand vinars is perfect for lingering in ordinary moments with extraordinary taste.

Taste these award-winning European-styled fruit brandies from Edelbrand Pure Distilling at Robin's Nest on the Katy Trail in Defiance, MO, where all six spirits are available to sample and purchase, served by their friendly, knowledgeable staff in one of the most scenic spots found in Missouri wine country.
