Nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains and located just moments away from the site of the original Woodstock Music Festival, Catskill Distilling Company honors the rich history of the Sullivan County Catskills — a unique blend of tradition and revolution. Over three decades ago, Monte Sachs — Catskill Distilling Company's founder and master distiller — attended veterinary school at the University of Pisa in Italy. After class each day, Sachs would meet with an Italian farmer named Bernardini, who taught Sachs how to distill grappa. "He taught me about the importance of sourcing quality ingredients from small farms and about how the shape and size of a still is reflected in the weight and mouthfeel of the spirits," says Sachs. Catskill Distilling's Peace Vodka is distilled entirely from locally-grown whole wheat, which Sachs purchases from a nearby mill. After mashing and fermenting the wheat for approximately five days, Sachs distills the wash through his custom-made, twin 650-liter copper-pot stills imported from Germany. "Some people have said saxophone; some people have said flute; some people have said Willy Wonka," says Sachs of the still's appearance. "But it is an incredible instrument." Once the wheat has been distilled, Sachs gives the sour mash to a local farmer, who uses it as feed for his cattle. Then, he brings the vodka to proof with pure snowmelt water sourced from the Catskill Mountains, before filling and labeling each bottle by hand. The mineral-rich water adds a surprising aroma of creamy butter, soft caramel and baked bread to the vodka. In addition, Peace Vodka has rich notes of sweet vanilla and soft hints of cinnamon, which lead to an impossibly smooth, silky finish. Catskills Peace Vodka earned four stars from F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal, which "highly recommended"the vodka, and earned the Gold Medal at the New York Food and Wine Classic in 2012.
