Catskill Distilling Company wins “best of” award


NEW YORK CITY, NY — The Village Voice “Best of Awards” has named Catskill Distilling Company the best local distillery in New York in 2014. The Voice reported the award this way: “Across the street from the Woodstock Festival grounds sits Catskill Distilling Company, where you can find some of the best spirits in the state. Owner Dr. Monte Sachs, a practicing horse veterinarian, is devoted to craft and innovation, and he developed an accelerated-maturation house that stimulates the flavor compounds and speeds the aging process for his whiskeys. He is constantly incorporating new ingredients into his spirits, many of which are locally sourced. Catskill’s core line includes eye-catchers like Fearless, a complex wheat whiskey imbued with flavors of apple and vanilla bean. Want to learn how to make whiskey? Sachs hosts numerous distilling courses for universities and individuals alike.”
