THE TRADITION OF DISTILLING &

HARSENS ISLAND

In the roaring twenties, Harsens Island helped fuel Prohibition by becoming the hideaway for many distillers & rum runners. A century later, Mike, with the help of his friend Joe, started a small distillery dedicated to making spirits the old fashioned way.

Building on tradition of distilling in boathouses, they focus on elevating and paying tribute to the history of Harsens Island. Their spirits honor the island's roots, and reflect their passion for the craft.

The Harsens Island Distillery produces small batch handcrafted whiskeys, bourbons, gins, rums, and vodkas as well as a variety of wines. Mike and Joe continue to explore unique distillation methods, barrel aging techniques, and recipes to create the dangerously smooth spirits of Harsens Island.

We are now distilling on the island like so many before us!
