Cooperstown Distillery is the first and only distillery in beautiful Otsego County. Drawing from the history and bucolic beauty of the region, their high-quality, hand-crafted spirits are inspired by the literature of James Fenimore Cooper, the crystal clear waters of their 'Glimmerglass Lake' and the nostalgic baseball legacy of Cooperstown, New York, home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Cooperstown Distillery employs the highest quality artisanal distilling practices. Using almost entirely New York State grains, they produce a full line of spirits. They are members of The Cooperstown Beverage Trail. Cooperstown Distillery works to 'know their farmers' and to produce spirits made from grains grown by people they trust and respect. Their still was custom crafted by the Carl Family of Stuttgart, Germany. This 'copper beauty' is the focal point at their Railroad Avenue location.
Here, you can enjoy the 'grain to bottle' experience and witness the entire process, starting from the mash right through distillation. Cooperstown Distillery then hand-bottles and hand-labels their award-winning spirits. You also can join a VIP tour, meet the distiller, or enjoy a sampling in their tasting room. The distillery store features an eclectic mix of bitters, cocktail accessories and gift items.
