Hudson Valley Distillers

Clermont, NY

Hudson Valley Distillers was founded by two families with one dream - to produce what they love. From the renovated barn that houses the distillery to each individual bottle, Hudson Valley Distillers does it by hand. Hudson Valley Distillers’ products are made with local ingredients - either their own or sourced within five miles of their farm. They pride themselves on their on-site hospitality - with the owners always available to meet with visitors and share their passion for distilling.

GENERAL INFO

Thomas Yozzo and Chris Moyer became fraternity brothers in 1990 at Bloomsburg University. Over the years the two and their families often visited and vacationed together, and invariably they discussed opening a business when Thomas retired from law enforcement. Over a campfire in 2009 the audacious idea of starting a distillery was suggested and the two never looked back. In April 2014 Hudson Valley Distillers opened its doors. In January 2015 the two added the Cocktail Grove, and in 2016 they opened a Farm and Beverage Market.

Located on Albany Post Road, travelers between New York City and Albany have passed this farm, once a part of the Clermont estate, since colonial times. The distillery and tasting room reside in a 150 year old timber frame barn renovated by the two families. Visitors can expect to meet the owners, see how craft spirits are made and taste unique handcrafted spirits originating from local farms. Cocktails and light fare are available a few steps from the distillery. They are currently offering Vodka and Applejack made from local apples, Gin made from NY grapes, and Whisky from locally sourced grains.
Hudson Valley Distillers is veteran owned and operated
