Foster Farm in Sagaponack is now producing a delightful new vodka made from the sweet and noble potatoes of its 100 acre farm. Sagg Farm Distillery is a fairly new venture that has blossomed in the midst of a beautiful field.
Dean Foster and Matt Beamer are the entrepreneurs and experts of the fermentation process overseeing the production of Sagaponacka Vodka.
Mr. Foster came up with the idea to launch the vodka company as a way for the farm to remain profitable during lean seasons for the potato crop. The business of growing and marketing the popular starchy vegetable has diminished somewhat in the past few years because of free trade. There are twenty pounds of potatoes blended to make each bottle.
Mr. Beamer was at the forefront of brewing craft beer in Utah more than two decades ago.
Look for Sagaponacka Vodka in your local east coast liquor stores and demand it if it is not already available. You'll love the purity of the spirit and appreciate the craftsmanship put into every aspect of production. The imaginative brand bottle is designed by Marilee, Mr. Foster's sister.
The dynamic duo of Foster & Beamer have other products planned for their distillery including a rhubarb liqueur, a cucumber vodka and a potato whiskey.
Vodka is the most consumed spirit in the U.S. so one can only imagine that Sagaponacka Vodka will flourish on the East End and beyond. Visit SagaponackFarmDistillery.com to learn more.
