Capturing the American Spirit: Yankee Distillers

New York State’s craft spirits industry has seen exploding growth in the past 10 years — with more than 55 distilleries within the Empire State. In the Capital Region, beginning with the Albany Distilling Company, spirits production is in full bloom.

Yankee Distillers will be New York State’s premier craft distillery, making their home in fast-growing Saratoga County – just across the street from the Shmaltz Brewing Company.

Yankee’s co-founders – Matthew Jager, Walter Kleemeier, and Scott Luning – embody the American dream, distilling the highest-quality whiskeys in small batches, using grain from local farmers. Their distillery includes a tasting room, retail space, and thousands of square feet of production space, making Yankee Distillers’ facility the largest distillery in the greater Capital Region. Yankee Distillers is establishing a reputation for themselves, and for Saratoga County, for producing the very finest, most sought-after American Whiskeys.

Yankee hired Relentless for public relations, public affairs, design, and varied services leading up to their opening and for each product launch.
