In the Southern foothills of the Catskills, Dr. Monte Sachs runs the Catskill Distilling Company, an establishment that continues to rake in awards for Defiant rye whiskey, Most Righteous bourbon, Peace vodka, Curious gin, grappa, and buckwheat spirit. The tasting room is directly across the street from the Woodstock Festival grounds and next door to the Dancing Cat Saloon, an idyllic spot for visitors looking for great music and great booze. A horse veterinarian by trade, Sachs became enamored with the process of distilling while completing his medical training in Italy, and he hasn't stopped creating and experimenting since then. We caught up with Sachs to learn more about his unique aging techniques and latest spirited creations.
