Looking back through business history, some of the greatest inventions started with a dream and a person
tinkering in their garage.
This is exactly how Higher Ground Distilling Company
and handcrafted brewery in Mayfield NY came to be.
"In the beginning, what started out to be a hobby and an interest
to create our own corn whiskey, soon grew into a desire for
enhanced flavors such as American whiskey and bourbon.
Throughout these formative years, we have produced quality
spirits that have been well received by our friends and peers.
After much consideration and research,
we decided to more forward
with the creation of our company. We look forward to
sharing our products and enjoyment of these American spirits."
-Dave Webber, Founder/Master Distiller
Our name, Higher Ground Distilling, comes from the historic period in the 1930's with the creation of a reservoir to control flooding.
The result was residences moving to
"higher ground", which is where our whiskey distillery is located.
