Boardroom Spirits Launches C, Carrot Spirit at Aldine Restaurant

Boardroom Spirits Launches C, Carrot Spirit at Aldine Restaurant

Just in time for the Easter Bunny

Boardroom Spirits and Aldine Restaurant celebrated the launch of C, a new to ‘market’  carrot spirit, appropriately on the first day of spring. C, distilled entirely from raw carrots,  is the second expression in Boardroom Spirits’ Periodic Table of Spirits, following ‘B’, a  beet distilled spirit.


C ($29.99) is sold at the Lansdale, PA Distillery (575 W. 3rd St., Lansdale) and is  available at Boardroom Spirits’ day cart at the Reading Terminal Market on Thursdays  and Sundays. Besides Aldine, other top Philadelphia restaurants and bars like Martha  and Harvest will also include the carrot spirit on their cocktail menus. C will roll out  nationally at the end of this month for purchase on Ezra’s.

Guests at the spring fete enjoyed a variety of cocktails and bites all created from – you  guessed it – carrots. Distillery owners Marat Mamedov, Zsuzsa Palotas, and Vladimir  Mamedov were on hand to discuss the unique qualities of the new product and its  potential uses both behind the bar and in the kitchen. The friendly Lansdale-based  distillers invited everyone to learn more about C and their other spirits (award winning  vodka, rum, gin, and more) at their family-owned craft distillery.
