Proof66 Notes

El Castor Cactus Brandy is made from a base of Beaver Tail Cactus, a local California product often known as the "prickly pear." The fruit is harvested in the wild. The Claro expression is bottled clear. We classify it hear as an "eau-de-vie in deference to the common understanding of eau-de-vie as unaged brandy. They say it tastes of "the sweet sun setting in the west."

Birdview Distillery was founded in 2008 by brothers Scott and Kurtis Major in Camarillo, California. Claiming a background of handpicking and naturally fermenting wild/local products as children, the company is today based upon a principle of distilling distinctly Californian and west coastal products, an expression of the western terroir. They describe themselves as a "fruit-to-glass" (as opposed to the more commonly heard "grain-to-glass") distillery in that they control every aspect of the production.
