The Black Dirt Region takes its name from the dark, fertile soil left by an ancient glacial that once covered upstate New York. Black Dirt Distillery is located in Warwick, NY, less than 40 miles away from our shop and still within the Hudson Valley. This particular brand was formed in 2012 to meet the huge demand of the Black Dirt Apple Jack and Black Dirt Bourbon, which were both born at the Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery (they also make Doc’s Draft Ciders and American Fruits brand liqueurs). They built a new distillery in Pine Island in 2013, but just started producing this rye last year. It contains 90% NY grown rye and 10% malted rye, aged a minimum of 3 ½ years in new charred American oak. Smooth on the palate, it offers up characteristic rye spice and a nice chocolate malt finish.
