Starlight Distillery With Christian Huber

Starlight Distillery is located at Huber’s Orchard & Winery in beautiful Starlight, IN. Their plans for the distillery started in the mid-’90s and they were inspired by their ancestors who once distilled fine brandies in this area in the early 1800s.

Producing brandy is no small task and being the first to walk through this process in the State of Indiana was not without its share of frustration. Their master distiller, Ted Huber, and his co-owner Greg Huber spent about 2 years researching and working with our legislators in Indianapolis to pass important legislation that would allow us to produce both wine and brandy. Once this legislation was passed the lighter side of distilling began in the rolling hills of Starlight, IN!

Although the first product has been released, they find ourselves busily working to release the next products which include an apple and pear brandy. There were also several products that we produced by infusing their brandy and wines together over the course of the last four years. Those products include our Blueberry Port, Raspberry Infusion, Peach Nectar, Apple, and Pear Infusion. These products have been very popular for them and have been competitive in many dessert wine competitions.
