The Better Man Distilling Co. is Long Island's first urban craft distillery. With craft spirits and craft cocktails in their infancy on Long Island, we have found ourselves situated perfectly on the brink of an exploding trend. Americans, most of them young adults, have found a fascination with the creativity and craftsmanship that goes into craft spirits and cocktails. There are many reasons for this newfound interest – the science behind distilling, local pride, small business support, the Instagram-ability of colorful or flaming cocktails, the search for something unique in a world of sameness, the high-class feel of cocktail culture. As a New York State Farm Distillery, 75% of our ingredients are sourced locally. Combined with our unique approach to spirits and flavor profiles and new-age branding, we will present a line of products that stands out on the shelves and in the minds of the drinker. Located in a constantly developing town, on the way to the Hamptons and Fire Island, we are at an ideal location to drive tourism to Patchogue Village and the island as a whole. The experience of the distillery establishes us as not just a bar or local hangout spot, but as a destination for craft spirits and education that people travel to from far and wide.
