Cooperstown Distillery employs the highest quality artisanal distilling practices. Using almost entirely New York State grains, we produce a full line of spirits. We are a farm distillery and member of The Cooperstown Beverage Trail. We work to “know our farmers” and we produce spirits made from grains grown by people we trust and respect. Our still was custom crafted by the Carl Family of Stuttgart, Germany. This “copper beauty” is the focal point at our Railroad Avenue location.
Here, you can enjoy the “grain to bottle” experience. You will witness the entire process, from the mash right through distillation. We then hand-bottle and hand-label our award-winning spirits.
Cooperstown Distillery Fenimore Gin is named after the prolific 19th century American writer, James Fenimore Cooper, and features the flavor of native New York State lilac. Fenimore gin is a lovingly researched and crafted recipe which includes the usual gin “suspects” like juniper berry and citrus peel but turns the corner with more esoteric botanicals like vanilla, mallow root, eucalyptus and star anise. This unique spirit pleases the traditional gin drinker while making more than a few converts! 80 Proof.
