Coppersea has a strong commitment to and love for the Hudson Valley, collaborating with other local artisans as much as possible. “We had Paul Maloney of [Kingston’s] Stockade Tavern create a cocktail using only locally sourced ingredients for the Manhattan Cocktail Classic, a major liquor industry event in New York,” says Williams. “He used Oliverea Schoolhouse Farm Maple Syrup, Fruition Chocolate, and Boice Brothers Cream. We also teamed up with Field Apothecary to make a cocktail for Olanafest at the Olana Historic Site.”
Currently, the raw rye is available locally at Madden Wine and Spirits and Blue 57, both in Kingston; Viscount Wine and Liquor in Wappingers Falls; Fox & Hound in New Paltz; and Stone Ridge Wine and Spirits. Coppersea’s products are also featured in cocktails at Fish and Game and the Crimson Sparrow in Hudson; the Stockade Tavern in Kingston; and Peekamoose Restaurant in Big Indian.
