About The Vanderbilt Mansion

Enjoy walking/hiking the historic grounds, gardens, nature preserves and take in the views of the Hudson River as you explore this property. The Vanderbilt Mansion is a home built expressly for the aristocratic lifestyle for a family whose name is the very definition of wealth and privilege. The stately house designed for Frederick and Louise Vanderbilt is an understated masterpiece of American design. The children of William Henry Vanderbilt—at one time the wealthiest man in America—were the most prolific home builders of their era.

About the Distillery

This is a must see distillery when you're visiting the Hudson Valley. We encourage you to explore as much as you can of the restored old building and truly experience this unique and special property. Be sure to check out the huge custom made deck overlooking the Hudson River and enjoy some delicious food and cocktails! Private tours of the distillery are available (be sure to ask us at the time of your booking and we'll be happy to arrange). 

History: In the 1850’s, a known philanthropist and founder of Ulster County Savings Bank built a home for his family. The now distillers are only the 4th owners since the house was built! They committed themselves to restoring the property’s natural beauty with the original Italian Villa Revival style of architecture. Oh, have they ever! 

Other distillery, winery, brewery options available as well.
