We recentlyenjoyed a tasting of DikinDurt Distillery of Herkimer at Valley Wine and Liquor, also in Herkimer. We have enjoyed DikinDurt Moonshine on many other occasions and were happy to sip a little more.
We also had a nice time chatting up Elizabeth Stack, one of the proprietors of DikinDurt. We have met her at numerous tastings as well as at the distillery itself. You know me, I am always ready to taste!
Of particular interest was their bourbon, a non-moonshine choice. I have only recently started to like bourbon, and I quite enjoyed this one. Elizabeth gave us some recipes, using the bourbon and the various flavors of moonshine. Perhaps a moonshine cocktail party is in our future!
We purchased the Honey Buzz Moonshine, which is made with local honey. I am looking forward to making a few hot toddies with that! We also talked about making another trip to the distillery. For one reason, I would like to bring my sisters there. I think they would enjoy the moonshine and the bourbon.
DikinDurt Distillery is located at 115 Smith Rd., Herkimer, NY. Their tasting room is open 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday. You can also purchase their delicious product at Valley Wine and Liquor, 326 S. Caroline St., Herkimer.
