The family New York distillery, which specialises in small-batch, hand-made whiskey, created its new blend via co-commerce. It swapped used whiskey barrels for maple syrup barrels from two companies, Noble and Wood’s. The result was a limited-release maple syrup-infused rye, packaged in Hudson Whiskey’s signature stout glass bottle.
Hudson is the first whiskey distillery to operate in New York since prohibition. Its packaging, including its pared-back labelling, eschews the overtly masculine branding that characterises most whiskies, making it attractive to the growing numbers of women interested in the drink.
