Four miles east of the Hudson River, in the valley between the Catskill and Berkshire mountains, lies third-generation apple farm, Golden Harvest Farms. Established in 1954, the farm grows over 20 varieties of apples on 200 acres. New York's first farm distillery, Harvest Spirits was established in 2007 to put surplus apples to use; they take on a second life as vodka, Applejack, and specialty brandies. Apples are pressed year round on an antique rack-and-cloth press, fermented into hard cider in stainless steel tanks, and then distilled in a single 100 gallon pot still. John Henry Single Malt Whiskey is named in honor of the man who has helped farm the lands at Golden Harvest for over four decades. Crafted in very small batches, John Henry is double distilled from two-row malted barley, then rested in new oak and aged in Cornelius Applejack barrels for three years. 100% barley, this contains no sugar, caramel coloring, or liquid smoke. A pleasing balance of malt and smoke, this will find fans among connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike.
