Tuthilltown Spirits  For 220 years, Tuthilltown Gristmill, a landmark which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, used waterpower to render local grains to flour.  In 2001 Ralph Erenzo and Vicki Morgan acquired the property.  In 2003, Ralph Erenzo and Brian Lee created Tuthilltown Spirits LLC, they converted one of the mill granaries to a micro-distillery.  Two and a half years later, Tuthilltown Spirits produced their first batches of vodka from scraps they collected at a local apple slicing plant.

Today, Tuthilltown Spirits distills vodkas from apples grown at orchards less than 5 miles away and whiskeys using grain harvested by farmers less than 10 miles away. The farm distillery also produces rum, eau de vie, brandy and infusions.  Guests are welcome to stop in for tastings during store hours and tours are offered by appointment.

See you there!
