The Village Voice: “Catskill Distilling Company’s Extraordinary Spirits”


Sullivan County Democrat


“We’re proud to present the first of many new cocktails,
the Sullivan County Democrat.
Featuring Catskill Distillery Peace Vodka,
Housemade Harvest Vermouth, pickled ramps, bosch pears, honeycrisp apples, and cassia bark.
It has also been featured in Time Out New York’s ‘Ten Cocktails to try out now.’ We definitely think it’s worth a try (or two).”

Soft, smooth and straightforward, with flavors of maple, mint and honey.


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.

One and Only Buckwheat makes Saveur Favorite Whiskey List!

The aptly named One and Only Buckwheat isn’t technically a whiskey (to be called whiskey, it must be distilled from grain, which buckwheat is not), but it deserves a spot on any whiskey aficionado’s shelf. Made from 80% buckwheat, and, as far as I can tell, the only spirit of its kind in the United States, it’s one of those drinks that makes you scratch your head and go back for a second sip. Earthy aromas give way to flavors peppery and sweet, with notes of barley, cane sugar, and vanilla. A weird and wonderful addition to the American craft spirits scene, Buckwheat is best enjoyed straight up and shared with friends who can join you as you speculate on the tasting notes: some fruitcake maybe? Or cereal? – Marshall Bright


Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s editors choose 7 must-try New York whiskeys – and Catskill Distilling’s Defiant Rye is in the mix, first bottle on the left. They write, “New York distillers are churning out some of the best small-batch whiskey on the planet and impacting the booze industry in a big way. Right now there are close to 30 artisan distilleries from Brooklyn to Buffalo mixing up high-grade hooch. Watch your back, Kentucky, the Yanks are coming. Here are seven must-try bottles from New York..

“2. Catskill Distilling Company, 2037 State Route 17B, Bethel Catskill Distilling Company just keeps raking in awards for its Most Righteous bourbon, Peace vodka, Curious gin, grappa, and buckwheat spirit.
