Locally Made Spirits




Pennsylvania is blessed with local producers of all kinds - meat, dairy, fruits, vegetables, wine, and even potato vodka made with PA potatoes. A friend of mine introduced me to another unique and locally produced product -- ROOT. From the producers website, its the original root beer -- what root beer used to be before they took out the alcohol. I can't wait to try it 'cause as a kid, my aboslute favorite drink in the world was a root beer float. And yes, it's made completely from organic products. Be warned though --its $40 bucks a bottle. It's a fairly new product and not widely available, but spread the word and it will be!
