In 2016, my friend Brian made a toast. Brian was a man of principals. He loved his family, his country, and lived with honor. You knew he had your back. He was a Navy SEAL who went on to serve our country in the State Department. He made the world a better place and made all of us who knew him better as a result. At the end of a long night of revelry, He raised a glass and toasted “Do Good.” I asked him to explain his toast. He looked at us and said “You do good every day. You always try to make a positive impact on the world around you. Knowing this allows me to do my job and that I am doing good.” Again, he toasted “DO GOOD.” Then he walked off into the night. These were the last words my friend said to me. His words have never left my heart and are now the core mission of our distillery.
In October 2020, Do Good Spirits was born. We now raise money and awareness for his charity www.thirdoptionfoundation.org, which cares for Brian’s men and their families that have been left behind.LEARN MORE
Back in Roscoe, you can get schooled on vodka, gin, and whiskey at Prohibition Distillery’s free tasting room. (If whiskey neat isn’t your thing, ask the assistant distiller if he has any bourbon cream hiding in the back.) It’s also a good spot to pick up souvenirs or belated bridesmaids' gifts, like cocktail-scented candles, which are nicer than they sound.READ MORE

We took our inspiration from the classic London dry gins which use a traditional maceration process and a simple blend of botanicals. With a nod to the past, we created a new classic. Bootlegger New York Craft Gin uses only five botanicals: juniper, orris root, coriander, lemon verbena, and bitter orange peels. We steep the botanicals in our base neutral spirit made from 100% corn, before carefully redistilling them on our pot stills. Our base spirit is used for our award-winning Bootlegger New York Craft Vodka and our Gin. The resulting spirit is blended down to 94 proof for bottling using the finest Catskill Mountain water.Read More

Beaverkill Bourbon Cream makes the world’s best cup of coffee, and yet is perfect on its own. Our distiller blends the finest New York State ingredients into every bottle: bourbon, cream, and maple syrup. Simply delicious. Our cream comes from family-sourced farms in the Finger Lakes and Western New York, some of which have been farming for over 6 generations. Our farmers say, “happy cows make the best cream” and you will agree with each silky sip.Read More
Yes, we make our bourbon in New York. Bootlegger New York Craft Bourbon is made from a mash of New York corn, rye, and malted barley, which is distilled using time-honored methods on our traditional pot stills. Our bourbon then enters the finest new charred, white oak barrels where they patiently await harvesting. Our distiller believes that only time makes for great bourbon, which is why we are in no rush to release them.Read More
