Saturday, May 17, 2014 - Tuthilltown Distillery Tour and Tasting

Tuthilltown Spirits brings the tradition of small batch distillation back to the Hudson Valley, distilling whiskeys which were the first legally distilled and aged grain spirits produced in New York since Prohibition.

New York’s first bourbon is HUDSON BABY BOURBON, distilled from 100% New York corn. Tuthilltown Spirits also distills Vodkas from apples grown at orchards less than five miles away and whiskeys using grain harvested by farmers less than ten miles away. The farm distillery also produces rum, eau de vie, brandy, absinthe, and infusions.

Our private tour will include full access to the facility and tasting room. You will have your choice of tasting any three products they produce right from the Hudson Valley and will also receive a complementary tasting glass.
