A doctor, lawyer and a political consultant walk into a bar…
Sure it sounds like the beginning of a joke. However, in reality, it was actually the beginning of something really special. With a shared love of spirits and specifically Vodka, Bruce Elwell, Steve Cox and Jordan Karp began talking about going into business together. With a history of home brewing and even some bootleggers in their family trees, making Vodka wasn't just a fantasy, it was good business. But not just any vodka... one that used local ingredients, was gluten-free, and used a distilling process that minimized it's impact on the environment. In 2010 that shared vision of a local distillery, became the very real Adirondack Distilling Company.
They started in 2011 with the purchase of a historic building for the Adirondack Distilling Company on Varick Street in Utica, New York. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a custom-crafted copper still from Germany, and a proven distilling process, Adirondack Distilling Company became Central New York’s latest gem.

Adirondack Gluten Free Vodka (Kosher)
Not all Vodkas are created equal. Our hand-crafted vodka is made from locally grown corn and therefore it is gluten-free. Our custom distillation process allows us to create great tasting vodka that brings out the subtleties of our recipe. And to make sure that Adirondack Vodka is of the highest possible quality, we crystal filter every batch we make with genuine Herkimer Diamonds.International Award-Winning Vodka
