Stoutridge Distillery & Winery is a bold leader in high-quality, small-batch spirits and natural wines in the Hudson Valley. They believe in the power of science, art, and local agriculture and are driven by a desire to challenge the status quo. It is their belief that good things take time. The decisions they make work with nature rather than against it. For Stoutridge, details are everything. All of the work from grain and fruit to glass is done on-site, and the majority of ingredients come from the Hudson Valley.
Stoutridge offers a wide range of products that inspire guests to be adventurous. Their process uses a mixture of tradition, innovation, discovery, and sustainability to form uniquely rich and complex flavors. For over twenty years, Stoutridge has been devoted to using the best practices for their products and the planet. They have invested in technology that conserves energy and reduces their environmental impact, and are mindful in everything they do. Guests can explore a wide range of innovative flavors and distinct creations during a trip to the tasting room.

To visit the Distillery & Winery is to experience the care and time that has been spent to create Stoutridge—from the restoration of the old farmhouse, vineyard, and winery to the inception of the remarkable distillery. A walk outside will highlight the exceptional grounds that include native plants and a restored local ecosystem. Everything that you see has been meticulously chosen for its long-term contribution to the environment.
The park-like grounds are a wonderful place to spend an afternoon and escape the everyday world. Pack a lunch, take a drive, and relax at a picnic table near the pond where you can watch nature while enjoying a bottle of wine. Or enjoy a craft beverage under a tree with a good book. Pets on leashes are welcome to come along. We invite you to visit and experience a flavor adventure.

MEET THE WINEMAKER & DISTILLER
Stoutridge subscribes to the Natural Wine philosophy of winemaking using a gravity winemaking approach and no chemical interventions. This philosophy focuses on mastering techniques that help fermentation flavors come to the forefront of the wine, rather than techniques that bring a wine to the marketplace faster.
The Distillery is primarily focused on making world-class single malt and blended whiskies using malt from Stoutridge’s malt house; and Genever-style gins from their own grain mashes and botanical recipes. Stoutridge also makes rye whiskey, which is a New York specialty, and various brandies from locally-grown fruit. They produce delightful vodkas, grain-based and grape-based, as a by-product of whiskey and brandy productions, and from these vodkas they make various gins. Recently Stoutridge launched an innovative portfolio of liqueurs and absinthes.
