What's Haus?

For decades, big liquor companies have been selling us mystery bottles and cheap ingredients, with bartenders and liquor stores as the gatekeepers.

We knew we needed something better — so we made it ourselves.


More Hangouts,
Less Hangovers

The word “ apéritif” comes from french “to open,” and it literally means to open your evening. We designed Haus to be the American version with more natural flavors, same easy vibe. With 15% alcohol by volume (about a third of whiskey, gin or tequila) it’s enough for a hangout, without getting hungover.


A drink you can feel
good about

Unlike sugary European liqueurs, Haus is made from wine grapes and other natural ingredients — and good all on its own. Every bottle contains real things from our farm, and is blended and bottled on site. Nothing sketchy. Nothing corporate.

Here are a few of the ingredients we use to make Haus.

Chardonnay Grapes

The foundation of every bottle. We made our first batch using our own excess chardonnay grapes and now we source the best grapes from growers we love nearby. This isn’t like your mom’s chardonnay — our grapes are unoaked for a clean, fruity palate.


No synthetic syrups here. Extracted from tiny white flowers, elderflower berries contain citric acid, which packs lots of flavor — think a delicate mix of sweet and tart. It also gives Citrus Flower its golden color.

Star Anise

With that potent licorice flavor, star anise brings a nutty and savory note to every bottle of Bitter Clove.


We use juice from fresh lemons because they’re less bitter than their bottled counterparts. They give your tastebuds a wake up call without tipping the balance of our other Citrus Flowers flavors.


This classic baking spice makes it feel like the holidays all year long — and adds a hint of sweetness to Bitter Clove.

Raw Cane Sugar

Unlike those European liqueurs, we don’t use too much when we’re making Haus — and that’s how we like it. With more impurities than refined sugar for a more natural taste, and a slight molasses aroma.


Off our screens,
into real life

Less “go up on a Tuesday” and more “catch up on a Thursday,” Haus is designed to be a social ritual. For that moment in the day when we can slow down, wake up, and be present with people we like.
