A trip back to pre-prohibition New York City

The Catskill Distillery took a trip back to pre-prohibition New York City, when the first official NYC Craft Distillers Festival kicked off Saturday, March 29. Over 20 specially curated Craft Distillers joined a 1920’s jazz band at The Bowery Hotel and served tastings over a two session, all-day, all-night speakeasy experience.

This speakeasy event showcased specially-selected, premium craft spirits from incredible craft distilleries.

Over 60 craft spirits were sampled while a 1920’s style jazz band kept the party lively during this one of a kind experience.
