Vodka, Brandy, Whiskey, and Gin oh my!

The Capital Region just got another addition to the craft beverage industry in the form of a new distillery in Downtown Albany's Warehouse District.

The new spot is is the latest venture from owner Doug Estadt who according to the TU had previously had a winery and distillery in Windahm and relocated in the Capital Region to open Capital Distillery. Located at 32 Learned St. in Albany in what used to a Bruegger's Bagles production facility Capital Distillery has just opened its bar, tasting room and bottle shop.

If you have a taste for the finer things in life I think you are going to like what the Capital Distillery has in store for you. They are currently selling and sampling vodka; rosé vodka (with cabernet franc rosé wine); gin; pink gin (with peels of lemon, orange and grapefruit, and cherry juice); maple whiskey; and honey brandy. I will tell you though, these beverages do not coming cheap. All batches are being sold in the bottle shop at $50 for a 750ml bottle with the exception of the maple whiskey, which is $60.

If you are looking to get a taste of the new drinks you can purchase bottles at the bottle shop and tasting room between noon and 5 p.m. Monday - Saturday or visigt the bar for cocktails between 4p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday's and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. You know if you are still searching for that perfect holiday gift sometimes a little booze goes along way.
