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. Once vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, and chocolate notes find their balance in the barrel, we taste and select each of the barrels for release. When ready for the bottle, we slowly blend in the purest Catskills Mountain water and bottle at 92 proof (46% Abv). Our whiskey is not chill-filtered, delivering a rich mouthfeel and lasting, complex tasting bourbon with every sip.
So next time you’re in a mood for great tasting bourbon, pour a glass of Bootlegger New York Craft Bourbon and slip into a New York State of mind.
“There is a pleasant lingering warmth…left me immediately wanting more. This is a simple, and simply good, bourbon…this bourbon gets it right.”
