Catskill Distilling Company

Monte Sachs learned to distill while at veterinary school in Pisa, Italy. When New York State passed the Farm Distillery Bill which allowed legal distilling for the first time since Prohibition, he and his wife Stacy opened their distillery in Bethel, NY near site of original Woodstock concert. Famous American distiller Lincoln Henderson was later brought in brought in to help with making their whiskeys.

They source all their ingredients from local farms and their spent grains are fed to local livestock which both supports local agriculture and cuts down on waste.
