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, Moonshine, 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.

100% Local Farm Sourced

Many distillies, large and small “source” their alcohol. It may be the base of their vodka or gin or it may be their entire product - like a 4 year old distillery releasing an 8 year old whiskey.

Our sourcing begins at the local farms, orchards and apiaries we work with directly to get the grains, apples and honey we use to make our spirits.

Our mission is to produce the finest small batch whiskies, brandies and vodkas possible with an honest flavor profile of the Buffalo, New York region.

We make our spirits the hard way - from the ground up. Next time you visit a distillery, ask them if they know their farmers name or where their mash tank is - their answer may befuddle you

 
 
 The apples for our One Foot Cock Apple Brandy come from Smith’s Orchard - 100% local
