We took a trip to Hudson, NY to visit with Sophie, Rory, Louise, and Stuart - the family force behind the Olde York Distillery. Stop in as we discuss craftsmanship, quality, and blending traditional and modern influences with Sophie.
How did the distillery come to be? What’s the origin story?
The distillery started out as a passion project because of Stuart’s love of American History. I saw a unique opportunity to turn my father’s hobby into a family business
We launched Dooney & Bourke over forty years ago with a commitment to making leathergoods with timeless style and uncompromising quality.
What values motivated you to start the distillery and cooperage?
We started Olde York Farm Distillery with two missions in mind: first, to support local organic agriculture and, second, to revive the craft of coopering barrels by hand.
