The Batchers of Litchfield Distillery

Why Litchfield Distillery?

  • hardworker-man-icon

    Our bourbon and rye whiskey are distilled from Connecticut-grown grains. Our New England climate and mineral-rich terroir produce luscious, sweet corn, spicy rye and nutty malted barley.

  • hardworker-man-icon

    Bourbon Whiskey Mash Bill: 70% corn, 25% rye, 5% malted barley. Straight Rye Whiskey Mash Bill: 70% winter rye, 30% malted barley.

  • hardworker-man-icon

    We practice slow distillation, which enables us to create precise separation of different components during distillation to make clean cuts and respect the temperature during the gathering of the distillates.

  • hardworker-man-icon

    Our spirits are non-chilled filtered to deliver a more robust flavor profile, exceptional aroma and a smoother finish.

  • hardworker-man-icon

    When it comes to sustainability, we walk the talk. We generate nearly 100% of our electricity from 174 solar panels installed on the distillery roof. All our spent mash returns to farms for livestock feed. Retired bourbon barrels get re-purposed for finishing projects with local breweries, wineries and coffee roasters.

  • hardworker-man-icon

    Litchfield Distillery named “CT Distillery of the Year” for the past five years by the NY International Spirits Competition.* Named "Best Distillery" for the past 6 years in Connecticut Magazine's "Best Of" issue.
