We want to introduce you to your new best friend: Belle Isle Ruby Red Grapefruit Premium Moonshine.

Our newest infusion takes its place in our award-winning lineup of original Premium Belle Isle, Belle Isle 100, and our extremely popular Honey Habanero “sweet heat” infusion. Ruby Red will entice you with its huge grapefruit notes on the nose followed by a flavor rush that does not disappoint.

But unlike other spirit brands on the market with dozens of novelty infusions, we always aim to keep our spirits as natural and premium as possible. Just like our Honey Habanero infusion, we used nothing but real ingredients in the Ruby Red. At Belle Isle, it’s important to us to never use use any artificial flavors or colors, just all-natural ingredients including grapefruit sourced from Texas and California to compliment our gluten-free, triple distilled shine made with organic corn.

Much like the Honey Habanero, the Ruby Red is designed to be sipped alone or mixed into a delicious cocktail. Here at Belle Isle, our team prefers it topped with soda and a squeeze of lime. In fact, Ruby Red herself was inspired by the Honey Habanero infusion, which we all enjoy mixed with fresh grapefruit juice. It was a logical, and delicious, next step.
