Brothers Vilgalys Spirits was started in 2012 to bring Krupnikas, a traditional Lithuanian style of Spice Honey Liqueur, to the American market. Our Krupnikas has a delicious and complex flavor unlike any other spirit or liqueur. It is smooth enough to sip on its own, starting out with sweet honey flavors that build to a warm spicy finish.

Our recipe started on our stovetop at home as a special drink we made for friends and family. We still make it the same way, using only whole spices, North Carolina wildflower honey, and pure grain neutral alcohol.

The result is an 80-proof liqueur that’s remarkably appealing to all types of adult drinkers. It can be sipped and savored, taken on the rocks or neat, or mixed in many different types of cocktails.

Everything happens out of a 1,300 square foot location in downtown Durham, NC. We’re open weekly for tours, which include complementary tastings.

Our Krupnikas can be found all over North Carolina in NC ABC stores for $29.95 for a 750 ml bottle. It can also be found in select retailers in Chicago, ordered online through Federal Spirits and the Pennsylvania Online Specialty Store.

In 2014 we will be adding more states and expanding our production, so stay tuned! You can follow our facebook and twitter for all the latest updates.
