About Our Spirits

Introduction


At Edwin Coe Spirits, we strive to make the best spirits we possibly can.

Over time you may notice a slight change in the flavor profile of our products. In fact, we hope you do. Over time, even a master of their craft gain experience and learns new things. We promise to constantly grow our knowledge and refine our craft to continually bring you the best spirits we can possibly produce. We’ll take the best of our test batches and release limited run spirits and the occasional seasonal. Periodically check our products list or sign up for our email alert; you won’t get junk mail, just dates of releases and locations to find specialties and limited run spirits.

We love spirits; the process, the art, the camaraderie, the fellowship, the fun nights and great conversations. Hard liquor is called spirits because monks said that distilling was removing the ‘spirit’ of the mash. Which is essentially what distillation is. It is breaking something down and condensing it to its most basic form. So distillation is the spirit and passion the distiller puts into the mash, removed and concentrated. Distillers, we love our products and hope you do to. We strongly encourage contacting us to ask questions, give comments or recommendations, or just to chat about spirits.

We love what we do and make, and hope to hear from our customers; to learn from and educate.

"It Just Tastes Like More"

Old Coe


Old Coe is a prohibition-era, aged spirit made from corn and sugar cane in the traditions of old time moonshiners.

Old Coe is our flagship spirit. Joseph "Coe" Dupuis was a prohibition-era Cajun moonshiner from Louisiana who perfected his recipe and process over a 70-year career. He was the great grandfather of our founder, Joseph Edwin Collins, and the inspiration for Edwin Coe Spirits.

We have carried on his process and love of great spirits. We are now legally bottling his mash, unaltered and true to the original. A sour mashing process uses a little bit of mash from the previous batch to start the next batch. In that way, the original batch continues forever. Edwin Coe Spirits' Old Coe is a great tribute to the legacy of Great Grandpa Coe. Distilled from grain and cane, it’s a truly unique product.

Our favorite recipe: Old Coe

2 oz Edwin Coe OLD COE
Pour over ice, or don’t. Enjoy.

Meticulously Distilled Three Times.

Vodka


A good vodka has to be clean and clear, a great vodka is smooth and subtle as well. We’ve made a great vodka.

Our Vodka is made from 100% Indiana Corn. We’ve meticulously distilled it 3 times to produce a pure, clean alcohol at 192 proof.

We then proof it down with purified reverse osmosis water to 80 proof and charcoal filter for a smooth, sparkling finish. Try it in your favorite cocktail or on the rocks.

Our favorite recipe: Gimlet

2 oz Edwin Coe VODKA
1 oz fresh lime juice (about half a lime)
¾ oz simple syrup, or simple stevia for low cal option
Combine. Shake with ice. Pour. Garnish with lime wedge.

Made from Organic Sugar Cane

Rum


Rum distilled to perfection; with a rich bold sugar cane.

Our Rum is made from organic evaporated cane juice and distilled to a clean finish. Evaporated cane juice is sugar cane with the pulp extracted for ease of shipping and handling. Rum is made in a similar style as whiskey. It is pot distilled twice, separating heads, hearts, and tails.

The heads and tails are discarded, leaving rich, smooth, high body white rum hearts. The rum hearts are then proofed down to drinking temperature, charcoal filtered, and bottled.

Our favorite recipe: Mojito

1 oz fresh lime juice, about 1 lime
2 tsp sugar or stevia
1 cup crushed ice
2 oz Edwin Coe RUM
1 oz club soda
12 mint leaves
Dissolve sugar into lime juice, muddle in 10 mint leaves, stir. Add ice, rum, and club soda. Gently stir and pour. Add remaining mint leaves as garnish.

A Gateway Gin

Soft Gin


A soft gin is one that is smooth and not overpowering. Easy to mix and easier to enjoy.

Edwin Coe Spirits' Soft Gin is a gateway gin. We set out to produce a nice smooth gin that would mix well without overpowering the drink. I think we’ve done it. Gin, in a nut shell, is vodka flavored with berries from the Juniper Evergreen.

There are plenty of other botanicals a distiller can experiment with, and we did. But in the end, we wanted a clean, smooth, soft gin.

Our favorite recipe: Soft Gin Mule

2 oz Edwin Coe SOFT GIN
1 oz fresh lime juice, about 1 lime
8 mint leaves
2 oz ginger beer
Muddle lime juice, syrup, and mint leaves. Add in SOFT GIN and ice. Shake to chill. Strain into highball glass filled with ice. Top off with ginger beer. Garnish with lime.
