Cape Cod Brewery: Cisco Brewers

Nantucket is home to Cisco Brewers, a brewery, winery, Nantucket Vineyards, and distillery, Triple Eight.

Cisco Brewers features numerous island-themed brews like the Whale’s Tale Pale Ale, an English style pale ale that is named in honor of Nantucket’s rich whaling history, the Grey Lady, which is named for the fog that often encompasses the island and Sankaty Light Lager, named after the lighthouse on the bluff on the southeastern side of the island.

Nantucket Vineyards features local red Sailor’s Delight and Cranberry Infused white. Triple Eight Distillery, which is the first micro-distillery in the region, originally began making Notch whiskey, described as “single malt whiskey from Nantucket.” It’s distilled from pure island water, with the whisky wash made from Cisco’s Marris Otter malt that is then transferred to the distillery. From there, the aging process starts by spending years in American White Oak casks and then to Nantucket Vineyard’s French Oak merlot casks for its final months. The distillery uses only natural ingredients and makes their products in small batches, ensuring that each product they create is of the most pristine quality.
