Wollersheim Distillery brings family-crafted spirits to Wisconsin
Distilling reawakens at the historic Prairie du Sac property August 14
Prairie du Sac, Wis.—Wollersheim Distillery will toast the reawakening of a heritage of distilled spirits at its Grand Opening celebration August 14 and 15.
At the grand opening, the distillery will release the third batch of its Wisconsin-grown-and-aged Coquard Brandy alongside new spirits: two apple brandies (one aged and one clear), Dancehall Absinthe Blanche, and Garden Gate Gin. Like Coquard Brandy, these new products are made with locally-sourced, locally-grown ingredients. Spirits will be available for tasting at the grand opening event, which runs from 10am to 4pm both days. Guests can also enjoy self-guided tours, light food, and live music on Saturday.
Wollersheim Distillery broke ground on its 25,000-square-foot facility, located adjacent to Wollersheim Winery, in August of 2014. The winery and distillery property dates back to the mid-1800s, and distilling took place there as early as the 1870s, when the German family running the winery made brandy to fortify their wines. Wollersheim Winery and Distillery Vice President and Marketing Director Julie Coquard said, “We’re continuing the circle of family distilling. We took one family’s tradition of making brandy here in the 1870s, and then ‘reawakened’ it within our own family.”
Wollersheim Distillery is owned and operated by the same family as Wollersheim Winery, and is, indeed, a proud family venture. The dream of distilling started in the family nearly 30 years ago when Julie’s father—the winery’s late co-founder, Bob Wollersheim—and her husband, winemaker Philippe Coquard, shared an interest in making spirits. When Wisconsin state law changed in 2009 to permit wineries to distill spirits, the family saw grape brandy as a natural first step into distilling.
Julie said, “We started with Coquard Brandy then, and we will evolve into other family-crafted spirits such as gin and whiskey, which will allow the next generation to leave its mark.” Philippe said that the family will be equally as involved in this new venture. “Distilling is fermentation, so all of us are involved in the distillery as well as the winery,” he said.
To Philippe, brandy and other spirits symbolize growth and the continuation of his family’s heritage. He said, “Brandy is the ultimate end product—you have the grapes, the wine, and the next step is the spirit. The beauty of brandy is that you can age it 25 or 50 years in the barrel, which, with wine, you can't. You can lengthen history with spirits.”
