we are north ridge distillery

from farm to flask


The Wendling family believes that a quality product begins with quality ingredients. That's why here at North Ridge Distillery, we use all natural, fresh, local fruit in our handcrafted libations. With every sip, know that you are tasting a product that has gone directly from farm to flask

If you like apple pie, you will love our Forbidden Apple! It is a blend of New York State apples, our Cherry Brandy, and spices. Our drink specialty is delicious to drink both cold and warm. Just a minute in the microwave will make a mug full of Forbidden Apple just what you have been looking for to warm up on a cold day

Our Cherry brandy 🍒 is great for both mixing or by itself! If you like a stiff drink, we recommend the original Cherry. For a smoother drink, try our Maple Cherry 🍁

The Maple Cherry is great mixed with Egg Nog for the holidays
