Lansdale Distillery Offers New Unusual Flavor with Beet Hooch

By
Lansdale’s Boardroom Spirits distillery is promoting local partnerships by making connections within the community.

A new spirit created from beets by Lansdale distillery, Boardroom Spirits, is offering a distinct and unusual taste for people looking for something new to try, writes Drew Lazor for Philly.com.

Named simply “B,” the spirit requires 16 pounds of fresh beets to distill one liter. The 100 percent vegetable-based drink is designed to either be sipped neat or mixed into variations of a dirty martini or Bloody Mary’s.

The distillery was founded by Marat Mamedov, his wife Zsuzsa Palotas, and his older brother, Vlad. It is a nod to their Armenian Hungarian heritage as both of these European cultures have longstanding brandy traditions.

Taking advantage of Pennsylvania’s friendly climate for new distilleries, the brothers decided to focus on creating a line of spirits distilled and bottled locally. Their 3,400-square-foot space in Lansdale has proved to be a perfect spot, as its Montgomery County address provides them with close access to Allentown, Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania farm country.

“We want to bring some of this stuff from the Old World to the U.S. market,” said Mamedov.
