The Distillery is inspired by the Tommyrotters’ Club, a band of rebellious craftsmen and artisans in the early 20th century who broke rank from the Arts and Crafts Movement to create for creation’s sake. They sought adventure, mischief and inspiration in nature.
Tommyrotter Distillery makes its home in the F.N. Burt building, an early 19th century paper box factory located in Buffalo’s historic Hydraulics manufacturing district. Beginning in 2015 Tommyrotter Distillery brings honest, small batch, hand labor to this historic site.
