TENMILE DISTILLERY was founded in Wassaic, New York with the intent and belief that a small, independent distillery with the right team could return to traditional methods of whisky-making and produce a superior spirit. At Tenmile, fast paced global production schedules don’t exist. Our goal is to make best in class spirits, from the best ingredients, with the best people, and we take our time.
TENMILE DISTILLERY operates out of a beautifully renovated Dairy Barn on 70 acres in the Oblong Valley. The copper stills, mash tun and vodka column were built by Forsyths in Rothes, Scotland. Master Distiller Shane Fraser, who is also from Scotland, has 30 years of experience producing single malt whisky. The massive glass wall surrounding our production floor is emblematic of the transparency Tenmile Distillery will always provide when it comes to our process, ingredients and commitment to our customers.
Every one of our sophisticated, small batch spirits are prepared, fermented and distilled on-site using only the finest (and 99% local NY) ingredients.
Gin Note: LISTENING ROCK is a rock rumored to be located in the hills behind our farm. A place where if you stop, you can hear the comings and goings of the Oblong Valley. Our Gin, lovingly crafted will hopefully entice you to sit still awhile and listen to the world around you. Take some time to be present in the moment and appreciate nature.
Every batch of our LISTENING ROCK gin has botanicals steeped in it. We make our base spirit ourselves from grain grown in New York State. We are also growing as many of our botanicals ourselves as the climate allows. We separate and individually distill four of our botanicals just to have better control over their inclusion and representation in the gin. Finally, each batch receives its own portion of botanicals to steep overnight before being distilled the next day. We experimented with many different recipes before we settled on this fifth batch as our favorite, we hope you will agree!
