Long Island Spirits is the first distillery on the Island since the 1800’s. Surrounded by over 5,000 acres of potato farms, the distillery is located on the North Fork of Long Island, in the heart of the acclaimed wine region. The distillery is rich in history and tradition, dating back to the early 1900’s.
Established in 2007, Long Island Spirits is surrounded by potato, corn and rye farms in the heart of Long Island’s acclaimed wine region. Blessed with a micro climate similar to the Bordeaux region, the area is home to over 60 wineries and dozens of pre-revolutionary family-owned farms.
The Distillery follows sustainable practices and is a pioneer in innovative fermenting, distilling and blending techniques. Leading this world-class distillery team is Founder Rich Stabile and Head Distiller Brandon Collins, who moved to Long Island to take over day-to-day distillery operations after he left his lead role at Buffalo Trace.
ROUGH RIDER STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKY
Named after Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders – a disparate group who shared a common purpose; the pursuit of adventure, independence, and excellence. Rough Rider Straight Bourbon Whisky is aged Bourbon with a mash bill of 60% corn, 35% rye, and 5% barley aged in new charred American oak barrels.
The magic then begins as the Bourbon takes on a new character and goes through a second maturation in our Reserve Aging process in casks formerly housing Merlot and Chardonnay from renowned Long Island wine estates. These casks are washed with high proof aged Brandy before introducing the Bourbon.
The result is a fine sturdy backbone with a hint of fresh juice, blackberry and currant, along with caramel and burnt sugar with a heady heat on the finish.
ROUGH RIDER – THE HAPPY WARRIOR
Rough Rider Happy Warrior fills fewer than a couple of hundred
cases per batch. This straight bourbon whisky is aged for a
minimum of four years prior to additional maturation in French
Oak casks from local wineries that have been rinsed with high
proof brandy. When ideal flavor and balance are achieved, Happy
Warrior is bottled straight from cask at 114 proof.
