After getting two bottles of local spirits; Core Vodka (distilled in Valatie) and Greylock Gin (distilled in Great Barrington, Massachusetts), it reminded me of the Albany Distellery that’s poised to open soon. Upon digging, this caught my eye:
The distillery will start by making unaged, or white, whiskey, with the first run available for retail sale sometime between late January and St. Patrickâ€™s Day
While I’m sure that the “late January” date is a best-of type of scenario, St. Patrick’s day isn’t that far away. I’m really excited to see this place open, let alone “test” their product. Albany doesn’t have too many production facilities to call it’s own (even less with “Albany” in the name), so I’m very excited to be getting another, especially one that produces whiskey.
