This White Whiskey’s name was born of a winter day ice climbing with friends at Silver Lake, an area of cliffs and ice in the Adirondacks…

Founded in 2013 by Keith and Steph Hadik, Black Fly is a product of Gristmill distillery. Nestled in the Adirondack mountains in 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 quintessential Upstate New York. Rich in agricultural heritage, the area’s abundance of fresh mountain air inspired this first Spirit, a corn Whiskey named after the piton’s used by mountain climbers. A piton is a metal spike (usually steel) that is driven into a crack or seam during climbing, to prevent a fall.

Gristmill stresses the importance of local ingredients, using water sourced from a spring within a few paces of their facility. Their corn is grown by Adirondack Organic Grains in nearby Essex. And the Adirondack Park, is home to Gristmill Distillers, six million acres of protected land.

This black fly range is named for the black flies that inhabit the area. Ask any local and they’ll tell you, black flies are synonymous with the Adirondacks. Bottled at 40% ABV this White Whiskey is sweet on the nose, with a warm, subtle hint of straight-off-the-cob sweetness.
