Constantly seeking to remain ahead of the curve, Red Soles purchased a handcrafted still from Germany with the goal to produce high quality spirits. We call our gorgeous, Arnold Holstein still "Patience, My Dear" and she’s a 100 liter alembic pot still, with an onboard boiler. Made almost exclusively of hand hammered copper, she stops visitors in their tracks with her rich copper patina. To the delight of our guests, the custom, compact design allows us to operate the still within view of our guests.
"Patience" was built especially for making brandy and Red Soles is building an impressive line of fine brandies. In addition to bottling the California Hooch, a new, or unaged Brandy as a stand-alone spirit, it is used as the base for our flavored programs. Limited bottlings include a traditional, Five-Year Barrel Aged Brandy, Limoncello, Absinthe Verte, and Cinnamon Hooch.
