BOROUGH OF YARDLEY >> The owners of Vault Brewing Co., Kawaii Tori Sushi, Pretty Bird Coffee Roasters and its newest addition, Deep Roots, have now branched out into craft spirits.
“While we’ve been busy creating a new vegetarian restaurant, we’ve also been busy behind the scenes designing something special for you. Introducing – Delavue Distillers,” restaurateur and business owner Jim Cain announced in a post. on Facebook.
“Our newest member of our company, Delavue Distillers, produces craft spirits right here in Yardley,” Cain writes. “We know you’ve seen us posting about Deep Roots delicious craft cocktails, and some of the key ingredients are our own handmade vodka, rum and limoncello.”
Delavue is now produced at a distillery, located inside The Vault’s production facility at The Tannery, 19 West College Avenue, then carefully hand-packed and brought to the Deep Roots bar.
“You can enjoy a tasting of our vodka, white rum, or limoncello while savoring your meal, or experience Delavue Distillers quality to the fullest in a signature cocktail,” the article reads. “Bottles are also available for take-out at Pretty Bird and Deep Roots.
Among his cocktail offerings at Deep Roots are the Moscow Mule, Gin Fiz, Cucumber Tonic, Bourbon Sour, Espresso Martini, Classic Daiquiri, Limincello and an Old Fashioned.
“In the coming months, look to taste other spirits from Delavue. We’re excited for you to try a taste of our new craft business! »
The company also welcomes Connor and Courtney – its dynamic chef duo – to Deep Roots, its new vegetarian restaurant, which shares space with Pretty Bird at 7 South Main Street.
Connor, the head chef, and Courtney, the sous chef, have just graduated from CIA Hyde Park in New York with their bachelor’s degree in culinary arts.
“They come to Deep Roots super inspired and ready to dive headfirst into the growing world of plant-based cooking,” Cain said.
Before donning his chef’s smock, Connor was a state champion baseball player. So now, between cooking every night and dreaming up new menu items, he likes to spend his time with sports training programs for young people in the area. You can also catch him playing disc golf in good weather.
“Courtney is originally from Doylestown, but luckily she brought her cooking skills to Yardley,” Cain said.
When she’s not making sure every plate is perfect for Deep Roots guests, she either enjoys being super active hiking and playing volleyball, or relaxing with quilting and scrapbooking.
The chefs prepare “very good” authentic vegetarian and vegan dishes complemented by Vault beer, Pinnacle Ridge wines and Delavue Distillers spirits available for purchase in store, according to Cain.
Cain and his partners currently operate seven businesses in the borough with more planned for the not too distant future.
Their businesses include the highly successful Vault Brewing Co. on South Main and at the Tannery; the Tannery’s Taproom on West College Avenue, soon to become a barbecue destination; cute bird coffee roasters; Kawaii Tori Sushi in downtown Yardley; Deep roots; and Delavue Distillers at the Tannerie.
“One of the pillars of our strategy is not to invest outside the borough. Everything we do is within a quarter-mile radius,” said Jim Cain. “Nor are we duplicating anything that already exists in town.
“And pretty much everything we do gets poured into another project,” said Cain, who has helped bring the once sleepy downtown business district of Yardley to life with an exciting influx of new and exciting destinations.
