Catskill Distillery named he Village Voice has named Catskill Distilling Company the number two distillery in its list of “Top 10 Distilleries in NYC(-ish).” The “ish” refers to the fact that a few of the distilleries named, like Bethel’s Catskill Distilling, are not within the New York metropolitan area. In fact, from the range of distilleries included, it’s clear that the Village Voice was evaluating distilleries in the entire southeast area of New York State. On its blog (, the Village Voice writes, “Catskill Distilling Company just keeps raking in awards for its Most Righteous bourbon, Peace vodka, Curious gin, grappa, and buckwheat spirit. A farm distillery located in Sullivan County – a stone's throw away from the grounds of the Woodstock Music Festival – owner and distiller Dr. Monte Sachs continues to put his heart and soul into making these fine New York spirits, an art he


among top in the NYC area learned in Italy. The distillery is open for tours and you can chill at the bar next door, Dancing Cat Saloon, for more tastes and local brews.” The Village Voice held a Holiday Spirits event on Thursday, December 5 at Studio Square, 35-44 37th St., Long Island City. Catskill Distilling Company was a participant at the event, which will feature an array of alcoholic spirit samplings, themed for the winter season. Visit or call 583-8569.
