Adding to the Martin Family’s portfolio, Alder Creek is the family’s second endeavor in distilling. Alder Creek Distillery produces an array of spirits including bourbon, gin, and vodka from locally farmed grains. Each spirit features a wooden label to stay true to their lodge-style aesthetic. Due to current NYS laws, we are unable to ship spirits. Our spirits are available in Idol Ridge’s tasting room or give us a call for pick up (607-582-7773).
