You don’t have to go to Kentucky, Ireland or or Scotland for great whiskey. Travel 25 miles north of us to Tuthilltown Spirits in Gardiner and you will be pleasantly surprised. The handmade spirits, which start at the farm distillery as raw grain and fruit, are made without added flavor or color and are not chill or carbon filtered. They distill vodkas from apples grown at orchards less than 5 miles away and whiskeys using grain harvested by farmers less than 10 miles away. The farm distillery also produces rum, eau de vie, brandy, absinthe, and infusions http://tuthilltown.com/home After your tasting and purchase dine next door at the Tuthill Inn located in a restored gristmill. Sit on the deck and hear the rushing water go by.Tell Toby at the restaurant we sent you. http://www.tuthillhouse.com/Also in the area is Hurds Family Farm in nearby Modena, which has been in the family for over 100 years.
