Divine Old Fashioned

Bringing the flavors of Rooibos and Cardamom to a classic.


Tips From The Bar

We make many Spirits at Divine Distillers but we still don’t make every one. (Not yet at least.) Our bartender reached for the following brands when making this drink but you should feel free to experiment and get creative with your at home versions!

Divine Distillers Sangre di Diablo Rum

One of our classics, this rum is unlike any in your cabinet. This rum is aged on Red Rooibos Tea. Its distinctive color and smooth flavor will make it a staple in your collection.

Early Times Bonded Burbon

One of the oldest Whiskey’s on the shelf, this Spirit was first launched in 1860 but gained its popularity in the 1920’s. It recently rebranded to a Whiskey as its not made in Kentucky.

Scrappy’s Cardamom Bitters

If we said we didn’t use this product in part for its packaging we would be lying. However, aesthetic label aside, these bitters pack a punch with notes of citrus and of course cardamom. They warm up any rum or whiskey drink!

Divine Distillers Orange Bitters

Our new line of bitters each pack a PUNCH. Made with local oranges our orange bitters are the perfect spark of citrus to your beverage. They will brighten up any drink and particularly bring out fresh notes in rum and whiskey.

Honey Maple Syrup

We just used what we had on hand for this! Feel free to make your own. Let us know how it goes by commenting on our Facebook Photo for the Fathers Day Old Fashioned.

Until Next Time…

We wish you all the best in your creations. Make sure to follow us at @divinedistillers on Facebook & Instagram and our bartender Jason at @jwmus and @nick&noracocktailco .

Strawberry Eau-de-Vie is Here!

Extra strawberries from our partners at Steven’s Farm led to a great opportunity to make our first batch of Strawberry brandy.  The entire distillery smelled like strawberry jam.  Strawberries turned out to be fairly labor intensive.   But after 2 days and 12 hours being up to our elbows in fruit  we had some beautiful strawberry mash.  The strawberry wine turned out tasty and the strawberry brandy even better.  We hope to bottle it in 2 weeks.


Come to the distillery for an exclusive taste. There will are less than 50 bottles of this wonderful strawberry brandy available.

Welcome to Divine Distillers

We are an international family. Jason grew up in Brazil and Mexico with most of his family in South Africa and Europe. Jennell grew up in the Midwest, but fell in love with France and Brazil. We moved often living in England, Belgium, Canada, France, and Brazil. We love the long friendly meals of Latin American and Europe that often involve distilled spirits before and after courses. At the birth of our son we struggled to find a name that would work in the many languages we spoke and the countries we had visited. We finally settled on Dante. Five years later we were fortunate enough to adopt our daughter Angelica from Guatemala. Divine Distillers is an homage to our children. We use Jason’s exceptional ability to find just the right timing of distillation and mixing to create the smoothest alcohols.

We make Eau-de-Vie (water of life) combining traditional European process with innovative practices.  Each fiery drink is filled with the natural flavor of our local fruits.  Continue to follow us throughout the year to taste fruit Eau-De-Vie and Brandy as the fruits are in season.
