Good vibrations… 
 
Hudson Whiskey came into being by accident. Back in 2001, Ralph Erenzo purchased an old grist mill and the surrounding property because of some nearby rocky cliffs. His plan was to create a climber’s ranch… a place where vacationers could come to practice rock-climbing. This didn’t sit well with the neighbors, but he had already bought the land, so he was stuck… or so he thought.   
 
He looked around and saw that his plot of land was situated amid farms producing grain, had a mill for processing it, access to plentiful water from a limestone aquifer, and the right zoning already in place. Fate made him pivot, and he pivoted to Whiskey, becoming the first new distillery in New York State since Prohibition. 15 years and a bunch of awards later, Ralph and his partners are pretty happy with the results, and you will be too.  
 
Today, Hudson Whiskey makes Baby Bourbon, Manhattan Rye, a Four Grain Bourbon, a unique "New York Corn" Whiskey, and an American Single Malt. Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey was the first Bourbon to be distilled in State of New York. Made from 100% New York Corn harvested less than 10 miles away from the distillery in Gardiner, and aged in an astounding trifecta of elements.
 
The Bourbon is rested in small (baby), 3-gallon and 14-gallon charred American oak casks in a heated warehouse for 6 to 24 months. This is where it gets interesting. Bear with us here. The tiny barrels maximize the surface contact between the oak and the Bourbon, quickening the aging process. The heat expands the oak casks and mingles with the Whiskey. Then at night, when the temperature drops, the Bourbon is lullaby-ed to sleep by a subwoofer playing some very deep bass music. The vibrational frequency causes micro-expansions and contractions in the barrels, and minds everywhere to be blown. Needless to say, this innovative sonic aging process is unique to the industry. So how does it taste? Like innovation and Bourbon had a baby.

Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
In 1788, Selah Tuthill built one of the first gristmills in the area to render local grains into flour. The Tuthilltown Gristmill was the longest continuously operating gristmill in New York State history. In 1982 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
