The Hudson Valley is full of beautiful fall weekends and in an attempt to get out and enjoy the last on in September, I drove about an hour north of Poughkeepsie to check this place out.

I had tried a few of their products before, but wanted to see what their distillery was all about, hear about how they came to be and find out what they will be doing in the future.

Hudson Valley Distillers, is really easy to find. They are located on Route 9 in Clermont, just inside Columbia County. The tasting room is open from noon to 6PM, Fridays through Sunday, a tasting and tour will cost $10 and if you would like to purchase a cocktail made from their spirits and locally sourced products, those are additional. To sit, relax and take in the sights, that is complimentary.

Looking to plan a day trip of your own? Think about including, Tousey Winery, Hudson-Chatham Winery, Clermont Winery and Hillrock Distilling. Here is more information about the Hudson Berkshire Wineries & Distilleries.
