Southern Tier Distilling Co is housed in the original location our namesake brewery. We pride ourselves in being spirit makers in the shadow of our brother and sister brewers across the road. Our pot still has produced a wide range of award winning aged bourbons and whiskeys. In addition, our equally decorated canned cocktails are made with some of the finest locally grown New York State grains. A visit the distillery is a must-do when in our area winter, spring, summer, or fall. Cheers from Lakewood!

Everyone says the same thing about their distillery. The truth is, when we say it, we mean it: Our small batch spirits are held to the highest of standards. Why? Because it’s not just the time we put into our spirits that makes us unique, it’s the grain, the passion and the thought as well. Committed to being a farm to glass distillery, we pride ourselves in using the best local ingredients in our spirits. When you pick up a bottle of Southern Tier (if you can pick just one) you’re guaranteed to receive the finest product we make until the very last drop.

Distillers are patient people, mostly. It takes ages to, well, age spirits and that’s fine. We have time. But we also like to have what we want when we want it. Although we never rush into anything, we were one of the first craft distillers to can cocktails, a fact we’re proud of. And more, we develop our canned cocktails with our award winning team of in-house flavor masters and package the final product across the road at Southern Tier Brewing Co’s state of the art packaging hall. It’s really a sight to see, and part of the weekly tours.

Our distillery is located in a wooded area of a rural town in sleepy southwestern New York State. We’re a destination off the beaten path. It’s kind of why we’re here. In fact, we wouldn’t want it any way, and there’s a good chance that when you visit, you’ll feel the same way. Cheers, from Southern Tier.
