It’s Time for
Whiskey in the Winter

2023 Whiskey Selections

Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Aged for More Than Two Years

Our award-winning Straight Bourbon is deep golden brown in color and exhibits beautiful aromas of vanilla and leather. Smooth caramel and oak, lingering like the last light of day on the waters of nearby Lake Chautauqua. We love our Straight Bourbon and we bet you will too. Made in small batches with 100% New York State grains and perfectly aged for over two years in open-air-seasoned premium white oak barrels.

Rye Whiskey

Straight Rye Whiskey Aged at Least Two Years

Rye never became trendy in Western New York. It’s always been beloved here. We start with New York State corn and rye and then age this whiskey in open-air-seasoned Canton Spirit white oak barrels with a #4 char. The result is a smooth butterscotch and oak flavor with a spicy, pepper nose and a classic NY rye peppery finish.

American Whiskey

Twice Aged & finished in Maple Syrup Barrels

American Whiskey starts with wheat and corn grown nearby our distillery in Lakewood, New York. To age it, we use hand-charred, locally grown, and milled white oak staves. We then finish it in whiskey barrels that have been aged with maple syrup in the spirit of true pioneers. Oaky and vanilla notes with toasted oak, dark coffee, and subtle sweetness on the palate.

2X Hopped Hop Flavored Whiskey

Whiskey Distilled from STBC’s 2XIPA

The true beauty of having both a distillery and a brewery? We get to marry beautiful things together. Our crew at Southern Tier Brewing Company brew beer with copious amounts of piney hops. We take the wort from the brewing process and ferment, dry hop, and distill it into this uniquely aromatic and award-winning spirit.

Smoked Bourbon Whiskey

Smooth & Spicy with a Sweet Finish

This whiskey is a Western New York homage to thick sweaters and an open-air fire on a cold winter day. We start with New York State corn, smoked and chocolate malts, and then age this whiskey in oak barrels with a #3 char. The end result is a gentle smoky oak backbone with a smooth, spicy foundation and a sweet lingering finish.

Pumking Whiskey

All Treat, No Trick

Pumking Whiskey is a spirited version of its namesake and a high-proof addition to the royal family of Pumking beers from Southern Tier! With rich aromas of pie spice, buttery cream, and pie crust, Pumking Whiskey culminates in sweetness among mild whiskey notes that flavored whiskey drinkers expect.

Confetti Cake Whiskey

Have Your Cake & Drink It Too!

Like biting into a delicious slice of buttercream frosted cake, Confetti Cake Whiskey is a treat for any occasion. Heck, celebrate everything from a birthday to a promotion, from folding the laundry to ditching that jerkface no one liked anyway. Live it up. Have your cake & drink it, too!

S’mores Whiskey

Fireside Favorite!

Prominent notes of milk chocolate, marshmallow sweetness & crisp graham cracker make S’mores Whiskey an adult take on this fireside favorite, just without the gooey mess.

Peanut Butter Cup Whiskey

We Put Chocolate in the Peanut Butter

Notes of milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter, Peanut Butter Cup Whiskey is our twist on the most popular candy in the USA. It’s chocolate in the peanut butter and peanut butter in the chocolate.

Cinnamon Candy Apple Whiskey

A Cinnamon Candy Apple a Day!

The candied apple is a classic standout treat among so many festival favorites. Now, imagine a grown-up version, soaked in whiskey, with spicy cinnamon balanced by caramelized sugar and notes of refreshingly tart apple.

The King Abides Cream Liqueur

There's a Beverage Here

It’s pretty simple to chill out when you’re holding a cold glass of The King Abides. This is pumpkin spice taken to new levels of deliciousness with rich cream liqueur and coffee notes.

Crème Brûlée Cream Liqueur

Creamy Richness

Overflowing with creamy richness, and notes of vanilla and caramelized sugar, Crème Brûlée Whiskey Cream Liqueur is everything one would expect from the classic dessert… and more.

NEW! Whiskey Mule

Whiskey, Chai, Vanilla, & Orange Bitters

A perfect blend of flavors including ginger ale, chai tea, vanilla, and orange bitters in our cocktail-ready whiskey. Made with winter weather in mind, it’s meant to be a refreshing après-ski beverage, as well as a go-to for cozy times in front of a fireplace. Whiskey Mule is the real deal because it was developed by our in-house distillery tasting room mixologist.

Bourbon Smash

Straight Bourbon Whiskey w/notes of Ginger, Mint, & Lemon

Our twist on a citrusy 19th-century cooler, cousin to the mint julep. Bourbon Smash features our award-winning Straight Bourbon and a perfect balance of lemon, ginger, and mint for a slightly carbonated, sweet, and citrusy finish.

King & Cola

Pumking Whiskey & Cola!

Pumking Whiskey goes to another level when mixed with cola. It’s a simple and deliciously crushable cocktail, perfectly balanced with pumpkin pie spices and lightly peppery notes of cola.
