In the years following prohibition, New York whiskey-makers were forced to head to the hills     - 100 years later, we have returned to the City.

Buffalo Distilling Company is a New York State Farm Distillery with roots dating back to 1883 and is now Buffalo's first Bourbon distillery.  Located in the Larkinville neighborhood of Buffalo, NY we are using local corn, rye, wheat, barley and apples to craft our spirits - grain & juice to glass. 

At Buffalo Distilling Co we are proud to create the finest hand-crafted, small-batch Bourbon,  Apple Brandy and Vodka in perfect harmony with Western New York's rich agricultural heritage.

Our new Distillery and Cocktail Bar in the former Duchmann & Sons Carriage Mfg building opened in March.  Located at 860 Seneca St in Buffalo's Larkinville, the 1890 Duchmann building is a stunning brick reminder of Buffalo's incredible industrial past.


Our Spirits

One Foot Cock Apple Brandy:  Aged

A true gentleman's brandy, One Foot Cock Apple Brandy is the "Original Humdinger" for sure.  Fermented on site and double distilled in our custom pot still - from some of the finest apples in the world fresh from Niagara County.  We carefully craft this small batch spirit and age it in oak barrels for exceptional smoothness.  This allows for a robust vanilla aroma at first glance, with a delectable smoky finish.  Your grandpa would be proud.  For recipes click here.


One Foot Cock Apple Brandy:  Un-Aged

Our Un-Aged Apple Brandy is a tasteful sipping brandy with a smooth finish - also incredible in sangria.  The One Foot Cock Un-Aged Apple Brandy has a bouquet that is truly world class - perfect with soda, a splash of grenadine, garnished with a cherry.  For recipes click here


One Foot Cock Bourbon -  Born on the 4th of July!

One Foot Cock Bourbon Whiskey has been a hit since our first two barrels were released on the 4th of July 2013.

This is the first Whiskey from the Buffalo Distilling Company in 100 years and the the first Bourbon Whiskey in WNY ever!  

Local corn and rye make up our mash bill for a flavor that is unique and resplendent. This is our flagship whiskey and destined to be the "paw-paw" in our legacy.

If life is a game of inches, better make it a One Foot Cock.


Introducing One Foot Cock Vodka

We certainly did not invent vodka, but we did invent One Foot Cock Vodka!

Proudly mashed from local grain, fermented and distilled in house, One Foot Cock Vodka has a warm, rich feel on the tongue with an inherent sweetness that makes a tasty craft cocktail or "all business" martini.



CRAFT SPIRIT WARNING: If your favorite brand of spirit does not say "Distilled by" somewhere on the bottle, there is a good chance that the brand does not really make their spirits.  

We are not "blenders" or "marketeers" or "fakers" and we do not start with someone else's alcohol.  At Buffalo Distilling Company we hand-make spirits in small batches from scratch using the best natural ingredients Western New York Farms and Orchards have to offer - fermented, distilled and bottled in our distillery.  

To be enjoyed by those who are 21 years of age or older.
