Wineries abound in Ulster County, but Tuthilltown Spirits, in Gardiner, is the only whiskey distillery. Book your spot in advance for a one-hour tour of the facility ($15; Saturday and Sunday at 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.) followed by a stop in the tasting room. Pick up your favorite bottle along with the Tuthilltown Cassis ($24), a unique liqueur that’s made from black currants grown by Fishkill Farms, then aged in the distillery's whiskey barrels. Only 500 bottles were produced and they’re not sold anywhere else.
