Why Peach Brandy
Clark’s 5th generation – James Larry Clark “Grandpa Larry” was not only well known for being an elite peach farmer, but he also made damn good Peach Brandy out of his basement throughout his years. He, his daughter-in-law Staci, and his son Dennis Clark (aka “Grumpy” as he’s referred to by young 7th generation of grandsons & as “Grumpy’s Sweet Brandy Cordial” is names after), always had visions to someday open a business to distill fruit that was unfit for commercial sale into Brandy. Throughout the past 5 years Grandpa Larry’s peach brandy (made in moonshine fashion) kept making appearances in dinner time conversations until one day Chris and Mackenzie (Clark) Schmalz (Dennis & Staci’s daughter and Son-in-law) decided to commit to Larry’s dream and open a distillery. After a year and a half of battling their way through the difficulties of building a distillery business, they have successfully opened Clark and Co.’s Distilling in July of 2022.
