Ah New York. City of some 9 million people squeezed into 300 square miles that never stop, never slow down. And tucked away among skyscrapers and some of the best restaurants of the planet are a growing number of whiskey producers.
The explosion of regional, small batch whiskey is one of the most exciting trends of the industry today. And we’ve been busy hunting, tasting, and searching for distilleries with a whiskey presence. So get out there to support your local Bay Area distillers!
You might be asking yourself right now why you’re seeing a Christmas story in the middle of February. I could try and come up with an excuse but I won’t. I’m lazy. It’s a fact I’m comfortable living with and if you’re still reading after this intro well hey you probably are too.
I covered the planning of the trip before and what my itinerary for the first three days was. Here, we’ll just cover what the last few days entailed.

We've provided you with a little music to enjoy while you read as well in case I'm not as brief as promised.
