Dorcas Roehrs 3609 State Highway 30 Middleburgh, NY 12122 1857 Vodka is grown, distilled and bottled on Barber’s Farm in the historic Schoharie Valley of the Northern Catskill Mountains. This exceptionally smooth and complex spirit is patiently crafted in small batches from potatoes grown and hand harvested in the mineral rich soil that six generations of the Barber Family have farmed since 1857. The remarkable quality of our vodka is achieved through the ability of 1857 Spirits to control every aspect of our production, from the field to the bottle. Visit our tasting room on the farm.
