Catskill Distilling Company

There are so many reasons to visit Catskill Distilling Company. A ride through the green fields of Bethel, New York (the site of the original Woodstock) is just the first. Interested in learning about the distilling process, from grain to spirit? No problem, just have a stroll through the distillery where one of their expert distillers can walk you through the process. Ready to taste a few spirits? Grab a stool at the bar inside the distillery, and you can swirl, sniff, sip and search for those botanical notes in their Curious Gin, or see whether you can discern the buckwheat in their Buckwheat Otay, a whiskey-like spirit made with 80% buckwheat. All that drinking got you hungry?  Right next door, the Dancing Cat Saloon serves foods to suit all tastes, from Woodstock wings and Righteous Bourbon BBQ pork ribs to Ahi tuna and truffle fries. And if you come at night, chances are you’ll catch a set of live music too. The vibes are good all around and it’s no surprise that when I visit the Catskill Distilling Company I usually make an all afternoon-evening out of it.

 

The buzz about this local gem is only growing. The Village Voice named them 2014′s Best Local Distillery. The NY Times named the Righteous Bourbon one of their Top Ten bourbons. Saveur donned the Buckwheat Otay as one of their favorite whiskies. And Thrillist named Catskill Distilling Company as one of the best bars outside of NYC. The good reviews keep pouring in.
