As legend has it, while the plague ravaged Europe in the 15th Century, a botanist named Richard Forthave created a popular herbal tonic as protection.
Forthave distillery was founded by two friends: painter Aaron Sing Fox and writer/producer Daniel de la Nuez. The decision was made early on to use only plant-based ingredients in their spirits. The library of botanicals they use includes over 200 different types of herbs - roots and barks, leaves and flowers, and fruits and seeds - and from that collection, the spirits are born.
