Mint Julep Season

Mint Julep Season

Just in time for the dog days of summer, Napa Valley Distillery (NVD) has bottled its ever popular brandy mint julep. In 1803, the Mint Julep was described as a “dram of spirituous liquor that has mint in it, taken by Virginians in the morning.” The first Mint Juleps enjoyed by the American colonies were made with brandies or rum. Following colonial tradition, NVD’s version is made with three varieties of local, hand-harvested, fresh mint, natural sugar, and their own aged, premium California brandy. Pick up a bottle before the season ends and then say goodbye until next year.
