Handcrafted Artisanal Spirits
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. You also can join a VIP tour, meet the distiller, or enjoy a sampling in our tasting room. Our distillery store features an eclectic mix of bitters, cocktail accessories and gift items.
award-winning makers of fine spirits
Cooperstown Distillery is the first and only distillery in beautiful Otsego County. Drawing from the history and bucolic beauty of the region, it should come as no surprise that our high-quality, hand-crafted spirits are inspired by the literature of James Fenimore Cooper, the beautiful crystal clear waters of our Lake ‘Glimmerglass’ and the nostalgic baseball legacy of Cooperstown, New York.
