The Ulster County distillery gets a nod in a recent Food and Wine roundup of best new American whiskies:
According to Tuthilltown Spirits, New York had upward of 1,000 farm stills before the 1919 ratification of the Volstead act made them all illegal. When Tuthilltown launched in 2003, it became the state's first small-batch whiskey distiller since Prohibition. Today, the company's whiskeys (which include the unaged Hudson New York Corn Whiskey) are sold as far away as Paris and Sweden, and Tuthilltown continually adds new spirits to its line. Located a few hours north of Manhattan, the distillery is open for tastings and tours.
