The Feast- Vitae Spirits in “The Hardworking History of the Hardy Orange”

By Ian Glomski on November 26 2019

Vitae is in the latest The Feast podcast. Learn more about the hardy orange found in our Orange Liqueur. As far as we know, the only liqueur to take advantage of this tasty, yet little known, citrus.


Professor Ian Glomski of Vitae Spirits in Charlottesville, Virginia has discovered what may be the perfect solution for this little shrub. Sourcing hardy oranges throughout Virginia, including even a few fruit from Thomas Jefferson’s grave, Glomski has produced a unique hardy orange liqueur, used in bars and restaurants throughout the upper South. On this bonus episode of The Feast, we talked to Ian about how he discovered a delicious way to use this invasive shrub.
