Orange County Distillery

MapGoshen, NY
  • Food & Drink
  • Gin


A farm distillery surrounded by lush fields of corn, grains, and botanicals is about as picturesque as it gets. After you’ve gazed upon this pastoral scene in black-dirt farm country, order a gin-tasting in the barnyard tasting room. Do it even if you don’t like gin; you won’t be disappointed. You’ll detect the presence of juniper, found universally in gins, but also there are notes of lemon balm, citrus mint, coriander, angelica, staghorn sumac, and lavender. Best of all, you’ll feel almost virtuous as you nurse your 80-proof spirit, because you’re supporting local agriculture. The distillery is open Thursday through Sunday, and, if your group consists of more than 10, call ahead to say you’re coming.
