Slow Food NYC and New York Distilling Company are pleased to collaborate on the third annual Spirits of New York Event featuring spirits made in New York, with most ingredients grown and produced in New York or, otherwise, fair/direct traded.
Selected regional producers’ beverages — vodka, gin, shine, white brandy, rye, Bourbon, and jack — will be served up neat and in tantalizing, season and place-inspired cocktails for truly local libation. This is your opportunity to taste some of the best booze in the state and also meet their makers.
Local, artisanal spirits producers are at the forefront of an exciting revolution: re-invigorating small scale, regional spirits production and helping build vibrant, local farm, and food economies by supporting local farmers and creating local jobs… and doing so deliciously.

Friday, November 14th and 16th; Screening of “Grazers: A Cooperative Story
New York State loses a farm every three days, and with it a way of life, generations of farming knowledge, small town infrastructure and a whole landscape. For two years Lisa F. Jackson and Sarah Teale filmed with a group of fiercely independent farmers in upstate New York as they attempt to form a cooperative to sell their grass fed beef. Grazers: A Cooperative Story is an intimate chronicle of the group’s struggle and illuminates timely issues regarding our food system: What is the true value of small farms? Can they realistically compete against an industrialized food system? Can the members survive their first year? At stake are their farms, the small communities around them, the health of the land and a way of life.
Filmmakers are expected to be in person for both screenings.
