tasting room


Although you can't come hang out at the distillery, you can still enjoy our products in various ways! Order cocktails or bottles to go, experience one of our virtual bar crawls or happy hours, and stop by our weekend gin and tonic stand!

There is something about an old-fashioned

That kindles a cardiac glow;

It is soothing and soft and impassioned

As a lyric by Swinburne or Poe

There is something about an old-fashioned

When dusk has enveloped the sky,

And it may be the ice

Or the pineapple slice,

But I strongly suspect it’s the rye.

Ogden Nash

The Better Man Distilling Company is not just a production space or a bar; it's an experience. Our mid century modern tasting room will transport you to a colorful, exciting world that brings together past, present, and future. We will offer a list of constantly changing craft cocktails and small plates. Enjoy our indoor bar and lounge area or our beautiful outdoor patio. 

Spend your time hanging out with family and friends or join us on an educational tour of the distillery. See our production space, bottling area, and barrel house while learning about the distilling process, the history of distilling and alcohol, and Patchogue's role in alcohol history. After the tour you'll be given a tasting flight of our craft spirits. 

Enhance your distillery experience by participating in any number of our special events and programs. Some events that will be offered include bottling parties, cocktail classes, and distilling workshops. The tasting room will also be available for rent for private events.
