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 up and coming 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, Moonshine, Brandy and Vodka in perfect harmony with Western New York's rich agricultural heritage.

Our Distillery and Cocktail Bar in the former Duchmann & Sons Carriage Mfg building opened in March 2017. Located in Buffalo's Larkinville, the 1890 Duchmann building is a stunning brick reminder of Buffalo's incredible industrial past.
