  • Hudson Valley Distillers

Thomas Yozzo and Chris Moyer met in 1990 as fraternity brothers at Bloomsburg University. Over the years the two, their wives Jennifer and Jennifer (how’s that for coincidence) and their families often visited and vacationed together. Invariably they discussed opening a business when Thomas retired from law enforcement. Over a campfire (with the help of some craft distilled spirits) someone asked why they couldn’t start their own distillery and they never looked back. In 2013 the two families purchased a small farm and apple orchard in Clermont, NY and named it Spirits Grove Farm.
