Distilleries on Long Island

Long Island is known for its award-winning wine country, booming craft brewery and cider house scene, but it's also home to more than a dozen small batch distilleries. From gin and whiskey to applejack and strawberry liqueurs to espresso-infused vodka, each craft spirit reflects the personal style of its creator and the essence of agricultural materials available from Long Island farms. Visitors can learn about the art of craft spirits from the makers while marveling at the intricate copper pot stills and walls of wooden aging barrels and savoring the delicious aromas of the process. Best of all, distillery tours always culminate in the tasting rooms, where you can try the finished spirits before selecting which ones to take home.
