Politics Aside…

Aunt Susan for President?

Chicago’s Koval Distillery has a remedy for what ails America: a barreled peach brandy, distilled from organic peaches and aged in Koval’s rye barrels. Susan for President is a recent release by die distillery based in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. Aunt Susan was actually a real person, an artist and free spirit who, according to niece and Koval co-founder Sonat Bimecker Hart, regularly campaigned for President of the World.

“As part of her artistic approach to life, she passed out calling cards adorned with humorous, often risqué, illustrations and slogans such as Up with fun in ’91’ and Tm with you in ’92.” *The upshot, says Sonat, is that Aunt Susan seemingly hated bureaucracy and enjoyed living in Carrara, Italy, “the birthplace of the anarchist philosophy.”

“Whiskey drinkers will appreciate the subtle, peppery entry resulting from the barrel-aging process, while the soft essence of peach that rests on die palate from start to finish will appeal to those with sweeter tastes,” Koval Distillery purports.
