Hillrock Distillery Tour & Tasting- Group Event
Hillrock Distillery - Ancram, NY
Bourbon tasting / tour - Exclusive corporate outings are available at the nearby Hillrock Estate Distillery. Enjoy a one-hour ‘tour and tasting’ of the distillery, malt house, granary / barrel house, all surrounded by rolling grain fields.
Additionally, an American Whiskey / Rye Class can be added to the tour, an informative talk with the distillers about the various processes, aging and flavors that result in unique artisan liquors. Optionally – this informative presentation can be held at the Interlaken, before or after dinner.
Prime farmland, crystal clear water, and a favorable climate create a unique terroir which is profoundly expressed in Hillrock’s artisanal whiskeys. Proud to be one of the few “field-to-glass” whiskey producers in the world, Hillrock is also the first U.S. distillery since before Prohibition to floor malt and hand craft whiskey on site from estate-grown grain.
By controlling every aspect of production from planting and harvesting heirloom grains, to traditionally floor malting our own grain, to crafting whiskies in our 250 gallon copper pot still, to aging in small oak barrels and hand bottling, the Distillery is able to create premium whiskies unique to the Hillrock Estate. The Hillrock portfolio is comprised of Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon, Hillrock Estate Single Malt Whiskey, Hillrock Estate Rye Whiskey, and Hillrock Estate Bourbon.
The 1806 Georgian House overlooks the Distillery, Malt House and Granary which are located at the center of the Hillrock Estate in a state-of-the-art complex surrounded by rolling grain fields. Hillrock House was carefully restored in 2006 and the Palladian window above the entry is proudly displayed on the Hillrock bottle. Integrated into the landscape, the traditional barn structures of the distillery complex were designed to convey a simple, timeless elegance. The complex also forms the heart of our “field-to-glass” craft distilling operation. The distillery is open for reserved tours, tastings and whiskey purchase.
