Independent family-owned Scottish distiller, William Grant & Sons, has acquired Tuthilltown Spirits, New York State’s first distillery since Prohibition. Considered the inspiration of the American craft whiskey movement, Tuthilltown produces a number of craft spirits including the award-winning Hudson Whiskey which was acquired by William Grant & Sons in 2010. Based in the Hudson Valley, William Grant & Sons has acquired the entire 36-acre Tuthilltown facility which includes the distillery that produces Hudson and a variety of other local craft spirits brands, the gourmet restaurant, visitor center and scenic grounds with riverfront views.

The acquisition will expand the William Grant & Sons reach into craft American whiskey distilling for the first time. Simon Hunt, chief executive of William Grant & Sons, comments: “In 2010, William Grant & Sons bought the Hudson Whiskey brand as we were not only attracted to the possibilities within the American whiskey category but in particular, the authenticity of the Hudson brand and the excellence of the whiskey; the same is true of the distillery. The entire team at Tuthilltown bring an incredible passion to what they do and possess an entrepreneurial spirit that we will whole heartedly encourage.”

Since first being introduced in 2006, the Hudson Whiskey range has created a stir within the industry and the bartending community, as well as among discerning consumers. The Hudson Whiskey range includes the flagship Hudson Baby Bourbon, as well as Hudson Manhattan Rye, Hudson Single Malt Whiskey, Hudson New York Corn Whiskey, Hudson Four Grain Bourbon and additional seasonal releases.
