New York Craft Distiller Dutch’s Will Launch New Peach Brandy

February 8, 2012

New York state craft distiller Dutch’s Spirits is set to introduce a new label, Dutch’s Spirits Peach Brandy ($50 a 750ml). Peach Brandy joins Dutch’s Sugar Wash Moonshine ($30 a 750ml) and its Colonial Cocktail Bitters ($18 per 4-oz. bottle) in the portfolio, which is currently available both on- and off-premise in the New York metro market.

Dutch’s, led by co-founder and president Ariel Schlein, is employing upstate contract distillers until its own Pine Plains, New York distillery—to be housed on a historic 400-acre estate that harbored a clandestine bootlegging operation bankrolled by Prohibition-era gangster Dutch Schultz—is constructed. About 1,000 bottles each of the Peach Brandy and Sugar Wash Moonshine were made for the first batch, by contract producers Mazza Winery and Still The One respectively. A Dutch’s spokesperson told Shanken News Daily today, “Dutch’s is currently building a temporary distillery on their site to pick up production while they build the main distillery, whose completion is targeted for the fall. They anticipate this temporary distillery will be complete around June.”
