Islamorada Beer Company head brewer Stephanie Harper is the literal wonder woman brewer and distiller behind the award-winning beer and spirits that share the same name.

Alongside a small and dedicated team, Harper is crafting both suds and spirits from the brand's Keys-based and Port St. Lucie brewery and distilleries, a lineup that includes so many tropically-inspired offerings, it's impossible to list them all here. That's why it's incredible to imagine she's also the recipe crafter behind a silver, spiced, single-barrel aged, and dark barrel-aged rum, as well as a small-batch gin and vodka. A standout Florida favorite, however, is the hibiscus-infused gin. The spirit is distilled from corn and flavored with a botanical basket that marries juniper, coriander, angelica, orris root, orange peel, cardamom, and butterfly pea flower that changes from vibrant purple to pale pink after reacting to added citrus or tonic water. The bold flavor of hibiscus and juniper are incredibly recognizable, along with a light citrus bite that finishes with a touch of vanilla.
