Our/New York, a new, small batch, high quality vodka from the first legal distillery to open in Manhattan since Prohibition. Our/New York is the latest addition to the Our/Vodka global family of local vodkas, made in urban micro-distilleries in cities around the world: Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Detroit, Los Angeles and now New York
Our/New York will be managed by local skate wear entrepreneur and artist Dave Ortiz - a co-founder of DQM. (Dave's Quality Meats) . Growing up in East New York in the 70s and 80s, Dave Ortiz was swept up in the graffiti and skate culture zeitgeist before developing parallel careers in the skate wear industry while simultaneously pursuing fine art. He says of the venture: "When Our/Vodka approached me about Our/New York, it sounded too good to be true at first, but Our/Vodka isn't based on superficial brand ideas; it's based on real people combined with real expertise and I was immediately attracted by the opportunity to grow a brand that New Yorkers can really identify with." Each city sources ingredients as locally as possible while never compromising on quality giving each vodka its own unique flavor profile. The vodka is partly distilled, blended in small batches, and hand-bottled at each micro-distillery. Our/New York is a corn-based super-premium vodka and is blended using New York City drinking water for a vodka that is smooth, fresh and pure with a slight grain and fruity note.
Located at 151 West 26th Street in Chelsea in the heart of Manhattan between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, the Our/New York distillery will also feature a combined public tasting room, bar and retail shop. The space will also serve the community as a gallery and event space. Visitors will be welcome to stop by the distillery for drinks, tours and tastings starting May 25th 2018.

Don’t the weeks fly by?! This week for #TippleTuesday
we have chosen The Botanist.
This gin features 31 botanicals, 22 of which are foraged on the island of Islay in Scotland. 🏴 The Scottish botanicals include the likes of mugwort, meadowsweet and the enigmatic Lady's Bedstraw flowers, which result in the flavour predominantly having strong floral notes as well as menthol and citrus. 🍋 💐
It is a cool, fresh gin with a complex and delicate flavour, which we think is best paired with Double Dutch tonic and a garnish of lemon and thyme. 🌿 🍋
