Tuthilltown Spirits Distillery

Tuthilltown's claim to fame is that they are the first post-Prohibition distillery opened in New York. Located in Gardiner, they are well known for their Hudson Maple Cask Rye Whiskey. They send their Hudson Whiskey barrels to Woods Syrup, a maple syrup producer in Vermont ,that ages syrup in the barrels.


Finger Lakes Distilling

In Central New York, the Finger Lakes are normally known for their amazing wine. Make the trip to the region and see why whiskey is just as much a king as wine. Finger Lakes Distilling makes an amazing whiskey called the McKenzie Bourbon Whiskey. This features 70% local corn with 20% rye for a bit of spice.
