The first distillery to operate legally in New York state since prohibition, Tuthilltown Spirits has already created a good buzz for itself in “foodie” circles. The aged spirit offerings include the “Government Warning Rye,” made of whole rye and distilled to 92 proof. The “Hudson Bay Bourbon” is the first bourbon ever made in New York, and the “Hudson River Rye” is specially concocted to mix the perfect Manhattan. Several other whiskey’s round out the aged spirit line, including a rum, and there is also a collection of unaged spirits (vodka and corn whiskey) available.

If it strikes your fancy, full barrels can be ordered via the online store.
