Kegs, Corks & Spirits: Featuring Nauti Spirits Distillery

Looking for a day away from sunshine and sandy beaches? Or perhaps a night out with friends or a significant other? Maybe you’re looking for something to do on a gray day at the shore? We’ve got the perfect answer: experience Cape May County’s local hops, grapes and spirits! The Jersey Cape’s local breweries, wineries and distilleries each have their own unique flare, making for a one-of-a-kind experience at each. Tour the facilities and talk to the experts to learn how beer, wine, rum and vodka are made. Send your palate on a journey with tastings, and bring your favorite flavor home in a growler or bottle!

Nauti Spirits Distillery is excited to premiere the first of its spirits. Crafted with precision, Nauti’s Garden State farm-bred vodka is made from sweet potatoes and pure water to create a premium spirit. Each batch begins its journey as over 8,000 lbs. of sweet potatoes, grown on the distillery’s own 60-acre preserved coastal farm in Cape May, and on other local farmland leased by the company. After the sweet potatoes are crushed and cooked, the spirits are expertly fermented, distilled, filtered and bottled right on the farm.

When opened, Nauti’s vodka releases a subtle aroma redolent of its birth, but when tasted, you’ll discover a velvety texture on the palate and a distinct, sophisticated flavor profile. A sipping vodka that’s distilled and filtered to smooth perfection, this vodka is equally smooth at home in a rocks glass or in your favorite martini. You’ll enjoy the unique flavor profile created by award-winning Head Distiller, Brendan Wheatley. He allows just a hint of the character of Nauti’s Cape May sweet potatoes to come through, creating sophistication born from the earth.

Nauti Spirits Distillery is open from 12 to 9 p.m. every day. Self-guided tours are available daily, which give you a behind-the-scenes view of the onsite distilling process from farm to bottle. Guided tours are available on the weekends. Enjoy your spirits in pure or in cocktail form in the tasting room. We suggest a Delaware Bay Breeze made with Nauti Spirits Vodka, fresh-squeezed lime juice, house-made pineapple syrup and cranberry, or a Nauti Spirits Bloody Mary made with Nauti Spirits Vodka, house-made Bloody Mary blend and seasonal garnish. Feel free to bring your own food to enjoy with Nauti’s fine spirits, and don’t forget to stop by the bottle and gift shop before you leave!

Look out for the debut of Nauti Spirits’ rum, gin and whiskey coming soon!
