Hudson Whiskey Single-Malt

By Chad Carns

Hudson Single-Malt Whiskey is the first to be distilled in the Hudson Valley.

They start with 100% whole-ground malted barley and pot-distill it one small batch at a time in a converted granary at the historic Tuthilltown Gristmill. It’s then aged in new small charred American oak casks and bottled at 92 proof, preserving its depth and character.

Notice the difference in the Single Malt. The custom-made new Missouri white oak, heavily charred, imparts rich color and distinct vanilla and caramel to the spirit.

They are not recreating the venerable cousins’ Irish and Scotch whiskies, but reinventing Single Malt Whiskey with an American sensibility. This whiskey wears pants. With a bold taste and a rich hue, this is a “lone wolf” spirit, meant to be enjoyed by itself.
