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 select grains grown by people we trust and respect. Our custom-crafted stills are the focal point of 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 and aging. Most notably, our award-winning, distinguished whiskeys are carefully matured on site in choice barrels, which further enhance their deep rich color and complex character. We then hand-bottle and hand-label our nationally-recognized spirits.
At Cooperstown Distillery, you can join a VIP tour, meet the distiller, and enjoy a sampling in our tasting room. Our distillery store and satellite Beverage Exchange retail outlets also feature an eclectic mix of bitters, cocktail accessories and glassware- including our Baseball Hall of Fame Signature Series decanters and other premium gift items.
award-winning makers of fine spirits
Cooperstown Distillery is the first and only distillery in beautiful Otsego County, home to the iconic National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Drawing from the picturesque beauty and celebrated history of the region, it should come as no surprise that our truly unique, hand-crafted spirits are inspired by the literature of James Fenimore Cooper, the beautiful crystal clear waters of our Lake ‘Glimmerglass’ and Cooperstown’s world famous reputation of honoring excellence. Worthy of carrying the distinguished Cooperstown name, our spirits are made to meet the highest of standards and are now recognized for being among the nation’s very best.
