Made in New York: Black Dirt Apple Jack 100% Organic Brandy
The glacial lake and repeated flooding of the Wallkill River has created what some consider to be "one great compost heap."
Though only just a bit more than an hour’s drive north from Manhattan, the black dirt region of New York spans more than 5,500 acres. Over half of the onions grown in New York are produced here as well as some of the best sod, pumpkins, and corn in the country, not to mention herbs, lettuce and other greens.
Using ingredients sourced directly from the Black Dirt region, two New York entrepreneurs are creating some tasty spirits at the Black Dirt Distillery in Pine Island, N.Y. See what they are up to at Made in New York.
