Union Grove Distillery is a farm licensed craft distillery located in the beautiful Catskill Mountains in Arkville, New York.
Owners Brian and Penny Mulder of Roxbury are thrilled to welcome you all to the distillery where they are looking forward to pouring you tastes and talking about the craft spirits they produce on site at Union Grove.
Our very first product made at Union Grove is Vly Creek Vodka distilled from NY apples and wheat and bottled at 40% abv. This vodka was awarded a gold medal and “Best of Category” medal at the 2017 American Distilling Institute’s Annual Craft Distillers Conference in Baltimore Maryland. 92 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and one of the top 100 spirits for 2019. This is our most widely distributed product to date and you can click here find a location near you to purchase it or in your favorite restaurant. If you would like us to be served or sold near you and cannot find it locally let us know and we can send a sales rep out to get it placed.
Catskill Mountain Maple Spirit is distilled from locally produced Tree Juice Maple Syrup. Aged in used oak barrels that once held bourbon and then maple syrup. We age the spirit for a minimum of 6 months in this twice used charred oak barrel and bottle at 40%/80 proof. Made like a rum but sips like a bourbon. The result is an amazing spirit that is great on the rocks or as an Old Fashioned or one of our other great Maple Spirit drink specials. This product can be found out in the world in limited locations as well as at the distillery.
Union Grove's Drie Brook Rye Whiskey is distilled from a mash bill of 75% Rye, some of which was grown locally at Lazy Crazy Acres, and 25% malted barley. Aged for one year and bottled at a balmy 46%/92 proof.
FirGin is a Catskill Mountainesque gin with the flavors of the Catskills in every bottle. Fir is from local Balsam fir and Norway Spruce trees. Fresh branches are harvested and macerated in high proof spirits to pull the flavor and aroma from the trees to the bottle. Other local flavors include some Catskill Mountain wild ginseng, lavender, fresh harvested locally grown horseradish, along with a few other secret ingredients. Of course it wouldn’t be gin without the addition of juniper. This is mentioned last because we went very light on that required ingredient. Stop in and taste the FirGIN and see what all the excitement is about and grab a bottle to take home.
