RVNA Give Back Day Part II

Time sure does fly. We can't believe it's been a whole year since we celebrated the grand opening of our third store in the center of Ridgefield with our dear friends at RVNA. To celebrate our 1 year anniversary we're throwing a little "party" on 4/20 in our Ridgefield center location. There will be all sorts of delicious products to taste throughout the day.

Taconic Distillery Will Be In The House!

Our friend, Gerald Valenti (co-founder of Taconic) will be pouring samples fro 3-6 pm.

Taconic Distillery, established in 2013, is a purveyor of fine craft spirits located in the Hudson Valley of New York. "We handcraft our award-winning bourbon and rye whiskies in small batches using the finest ingredients, including grains grown in New York and natural spring water from our farm." 

Inspired by hunting and fishing, Taconic embraces a passion for the outdoors and that passion is imprinted on all our spirits.

"All of our spirits are brilliant for simple sipping. They also make excellent traditional and signature cocktails."

Gerry’s role at Taconic Distillery is a culmination of his studies in Engineering and a lifetime love of the science of food and beverage. Paul and Gerry’s interest in the outdoors and a simpler organic way of life was instrumental in forming a friendship that seeded the idea of Taconic Distillery.

"A gentleman farmer, winemaker and forager, Gerry’s passion for the earth and the bounty it provides is instrumental in the selection of Hudson Valley grains utilized in our spirits."
