Have the winter blues?  We have the cure! Join the Chamber as Hudson Valley Distillers, LLC  hosts a Business After Hours on Wednesday, February 25th.  They are located at 1727 Route 9 in Clermont.  The event will run from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  Hudson Valley Distillers, LLC opened for business in March of
2014.  Two families sharing a dream purchased a small farm and apple orchard in Clermont, NY and named it Spirits Grove Farm.  Now, they hand make distinctive spirits in small batches with ingredients sourced from local farms and orchards.  First came the Distillery and then the Hudson Valley
Distillers tasting room where you can take a distillery tour and enjoy tastings Friday – Sunday, 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm or by appointment.  Their most recent addition to the distillery is the Cocktail Grove.  Cocktail Grove is an intimate space where people can enjoy unique cocktails made from their spirits, and meet the people who make them.  Cocktail Grove is open Wednesday – Sunday from 3:00 – 7:00 pm for specialty cocktails (like the Hardscrabble Lemonade or Nonny Rose), tastings, bottle sales and light local fare.  They are also available for private parties.  For more information visit their website at www.hudsonvalleydistillers.com.  Business After Hours’ offer excellent networking opportunities for area business people.  All members of the business community are invited to attend this business event and check out the new Cocktail Grove at Hudson Valley Distillers.  Tours of the distillery will be available.  Hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be offered during the After Hours.  There is no cost to attend, but guests are encouraged to contact the Chamber at (518) 828-4417 if you plan to join us.
