Participating Distilleries on the Tour
Harvest Spirits Farm Distillery products are crafted in the “tree to bottle” method, with the apples grown steps from the distillery then pressed, fermented, distilled and bottled all on-site. Working closely with several local farms, Harvest Spirits is a true Farm Distillery, promoting strong ties among the local farmers and sharing information readily, from farm to bottle.
Having helped to forge the way in New York craft distilling, Harvest Spirits received New York State’s first Farm Distillery license in 2007 and shortly after produced New York’s first Applejack since the prohibition era. Their award-winning spirits truly express the terroir of the Hudson River Valley and pay tribute to the abundant variety of the local fruit.
Step into the distillery and you will get a sense of the homegrown and eclectic mix that has created this iconic place and space, where history, innovation, creativity and the pioneering spirit have built incredible experiences and truly exceptional products.
Cooper’s Daughter Spirits
Cooper’s Daughter Spirits is a woman-owned and family operated distillery and cooperage. The name of the distillery tells the story of a father and daughter who combined their passions to create a business together. Stuart Newsome’s passion is history and he had a 42 year career in historic restoration. His daughter, Sophie Newsome’s passion is the farm-to-table movement. When choosing a location for the distillery the Newsome family chose the fertile Hudson Valley region, so that they could be close to the farmers who inspire each of their spirits.
Today the distillery and cooperage are located in the former carriage house along the Claverack Creek- 10 minutes from the city of Hudson. Local grain, fruit, botanicals, and tree syrups are the foundation for this distillery’s seasonal batch spirits. Barrels are handmade on site and are used to age bourbon and whiskey.
Hudson Valley Distillers
Hudson Valley Distillers are a family run, veteran/woman/LGBT-owned business whose passion is to create uncommon spirits from local ingredients that bring people together.
Their spirits are thoughtfully hand-distilled using local and organic ingredients (when possible). They proudly offer a friendly and approachable line of spirits that are easy to enjoy on their own and are well-complemented when mixed. Their versatility gives bartenders the ability to easily create exceptional cocktails and don’t require consumers to be mixologists in order to make and enjoy an excellent beverage at home. Hudson Valley Distillers work hard so that our customers can experience “time well spent.”
