Tasting room offerings catering to wider preferences

We passed the point of singularity in beverage tasting rooms quite some time ago. No longer do wineries limit themselves to their own wines and nothing else. Breweries are welcoming cider manufacturers' wares. Coffee houses sometimes offer brews or wines. Distillers are working with everyone.

Thus, seeing different beverages and different brands wherever you visit is commonplace. Tuthilltown Distilling is a great current example. Later this month it will be offering tastings of a specialty coffee and a specialty cider alongside its own spirits.

The Pitchfork Hard Cider team from Poughkeepsie Spirit Works will be at Tuthilltown from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, January 28, to offer free tastings of their Hudson Valley cider, made from apples grown at Fishkill Farms.

And, sometime in mid-month Irving Farm Coffee Roasters of nearby Millertown will be bringing a new coffee to Tuthilltown, a bourbon barrel roasted coffee employing used whiskey barrels from Tuthilltown.

Tuthilltown Spirits, which in addition  to the distillery has a restaurant and a visitor center, is located at 14 Grist Mill Lane in Gardiner, Ulster County, about an 80-minute drive south of Albany just off I-87. Phone: 845-255-1527.
