COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. MAY 26, 2021
Cooperstown Distillery, LLC today announced its upcoming “Grand Opening” event celebrating the construction and current operation of its new 7,500 square foot rickhouse (whiskey storage facility) to be held in Cooperstown, NY on June 12, 2021.
Cooperstown Distillery completed construction of its rickhouse in 2020, providing critical space to support the company’s anticipated increased production of its hand-crafted spirits, specifically for its premium bourbon that requires up to five years of aging to mature. The Company intends to conduct its Grand Opening event to celebrate this significant milestone and to thank the many local business and community leaders that have provided support for the project, despite the many pandemic-related challenges over the past year.
“We are extremely pleased to have completed this project that has satisfied a key need for us as we simultaneously expand both our spirit production and our wholesale distribution channels,” said Gene Marra, Founder and Owner of Cooperstown Distillery. “Obviously, the pandemic has caused us to delay our rickhouse ‘opening’ event a bit, but we have used the past year to concentrate on adding production staff, putting product away to mature, and building out our national distribution footprint to meet the growing demand for our products. We are eager to start the 2021 spring/summer season off on a positive note and look forward to our Grand Opening event on June 12th as a way to do just that,” Marra said.
Cooperstown Distillery will be hosting guests at its distillery location at 11 Railroad Avenue in Cooperstown, NY for a complimentary spirit tasting and tour, with light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments on June 12th from noon to 2:00 p.m. EDT.
