Waterman's Distillery, LLC

Waterman's Distillery is an innovative producer of all-natural grain neutral spirits. Besides the smooth taste and finish of our classic Waterman's White 88 proof corn whiskey, we are creating a unique line of new and hand crafted, flavored spirits. The distinctive taste of our grain neutral spirits are produced from the sweetest corn in the New York Finger Lakes region, and infused with or added to, hand crafted flavors. The all natural flavors will excite the palate with a plethora of tastes and aromatic finishes.

Waterman's Distillery is housed in a structure of 19th century charm and historical engineering. Three hundred year old hemlock timbers adorn the pegged beam structure built in the 1870's. The German Bank barn is steeped in history and local folklore. Purposefully located on route 434 in Apalachin,N.Y., the distillery is part of America's original moonshine trail established by bootleggers traveling east and west during the prohibition era.

Our tasting and viewing room is open to sample our products, purchase our bottles, and sip on some of our delicious hand crafted cocktails. NY State Craft Beer and Wines. After only being open a few months, Waterman's was named by Forbes, as being one of the "craft distilleries you don't want to miss visiting this summer". Waterman's has also been featured in The NY Times article, "A New Wave of Spirits-Driven Travel" ,
