Our story started with a bold proposition: make whiskey in New York for the first time since prohibition. In 2003, Ralph Erenzo had a wild idea to move upstate and start a distillery, way back before there was a craft distiller in every neighborhood across the US. Ralph didn’t play by the rules. He fought for his whiskey, and challenged the government to change the laws for craft distillers everywhere.

Hudson has always been known for its big, bold flavor. Thanks to high-quality grain from local family farmers and straight up, undiluted mashbills, we’re able to create the purest possible expressions of each grain and truly make whiskey the way we want to: Bold, yet refined; artful and unapologetic.

We’ve carved out our place in American distilling and we continue to innovate, collaborate, and push the envelope of New York Craft Spirits.
