Van Brunt Stillhouse has a growing family of whiskeys.

Van Brunt Stillhouse American Whiskey does not fit neatly into typical whiskey categories.  It is a four grain whiskey made primarily from malted barley and wheat, with a little bit of corn and a touch of rye.  This unique whiskey has floral notes of a malt whiskey with the new barrel sweetness of a bourbon.

Van Brunt Stillhouse Malt Whiskey, like it's Scottish cousin, is made with 100% malted barley.  But the Stillhouse's uniquely American approach makes this bold and bright whiskey stand out from Scotch with caramel and roasted notes unlike any whisky you've had from across the pond.  At 9 months the grain comes to the front, and the small, new barrels give this whiskey a healthy dose of the wood character that American's look for in whiskey.

Van Brunt Stillhouse Bourbon Whiskey  is a wheated bourbon made with 65% organic NY state corn.   This American classic is carefully made with only the best ingredients. 

Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey  is available now!  But act quickly, when this batch is gone it won't be back until next year. This batch is a mix of our recipe experiments last year.  Nice rye spiciness and dried apricots with a dry toasted finish.

Due North Rum is carefully created with organic, unprocessed sugar.  While most sugar is grown on plantations and manufactured in industrial processing plants, our sugar was grown by small family farmers and dried in the sun.

Rum has a long history in New York and America.   The fledgling colonies were cash poor and recognized the economic opportunity in importing the waste product of their sister colonies in the Caribbean and producing a much sought after product on the world market. Van Brunt Stillhouse is bringing rum back to the northeast with Brooklyn’s own rum: Due North Rum.

Sailors at sea were once afforded a ration of rum every day.   It was their pay.   Usually the Grog was more water than rum, but when they had performed valiantly or had seen heavy weather or a bruising fight, the captain would dole out a little more fortitude in the ration.  When the ration was pure rum, the sailors would say the ration was "Due North".

Due North Rum's delicate profile and it's unique aging process gives this rum appeal to whiskey drinkers and rum drinkers alike.

Grape skins freshly pressed from Brooklyn wines are gently steamed to coax out the earthy delight know as Grappa.  While not everyone likes Grappa, for those that do, Van Brunt Stillhouse's Grappa is a delicacy.

This fall we worked with Brooklyn Winery and Red Hook Winery to produce a few single varietals.  We'll be making them available very soon.

Moonshine, White Lightning, New Make Whiskey.  19th Century New York City produced more Moonshine that the entire south combined.  From industrial scale operations in Chelsea to “mom and pop” stills in Vinegar Hill to Red Hook’s own streets, whiskey was once produced in large quantities in the City.

The Stillhouse is working to revive this proud tradition.

Our Moonshine stands apart from other white whiskey in that it is unaged malt whiskey: 100% NY State malted 6 row barley.  The lack of oak brings forward all the grain flavors making the right cocktail earthy and rich.

Ask your local shop to carry our Moonshine.
