Since 1857, six generations of the Barber family have farmed dairy and produce in the heart of the Schoharie Valley—the breadbasket of the Revolutionary War. As one of the only American distilleries growing its own potatoes and using its own spring water, the superlative quality of our ingredients produces only the finest vodka, and the Barber family tradition of excellence continues.
1857 Vodka is made in small batches. Handcrafted to attain a perfectly smooth and creamy flavor. We grow the highest quality, best tasting potatoes in nine feet of rich “Barbour Basher” alluvial soils of the bottomlands. Our spring water comes from the aquifer directly beneath this soil. From the heart of the Barber Family Farm in the Schoharie Valley to you, 1857 is a naturally gluten-free, farm-to-bottle vodka.
