Whiskey meets maple syrup.

Founded in 2013 by Keith and Steph Hadik, Black Fly is a product of Gristmill distillery. Nestled in the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York, the rustic facility sources provincial ingredients for their handcrafted Whiskeys.

In 2007 New York State passed legislation that made distilling accessible to smaller businesses. Keith Van Sise decided to seize the day and got a license to operate a New York State Farm distillery.

Gristmill is a true Upstate New Yorker, embracing its rich agricultural heritage, and fresh mountain air. They advocate the importance of using local ingredients, and source their water from a spring within a few paces of their facility. Their corn is grown by Adirondack Organic Grains in nearby Essex.

Their Maple Flavored Whiskey has a 100% corn mash bill. Aged in ex-Black Fly Bourbon barrels. After its initial beauty rest, the Whiskey takes a sweet detour, being finished in ex-Bourbon, ex-maple syrup barrels courtesy of the makers of Black Rooster Maple in Keene, who age special batches of their maple syrup in Black Fly Bourbon barrels.

The Whiskey is mixed with a whole jug of Black Rooster un-aged maple syrup. Cut to a higher proof than Black fly’s other expressions, the result is an "oaky warmth with a balanced slight maple sweetness, an aged Whiskey full of real, natural maple flavor.”

Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
