We close the distillery to visitors during the winter months so that we can work on expansion plans, new products and better provide Tommyrotter products to a liquor store near you.

In the spring, summer and fall months, our multi-story distillery is open for free tastings and sales. Get an intimate view of our production floor from our tasting room’s glass-walled mezzanine. Check out our small batch copper stills and see how our craft spirits are meticulously created. Sample our handcrafted gin and vodka and purchase bottles to make your own cocktails at home.
Tommyrotter is at home in the F.N. Burt building, a 115-year-old paper box factory located in the heart of Buffalo’s historic Hydraulics manufacturing district. At its height of production, the company produced as many as 4 million boxes a day here, used to store everything from cigarettes to shoe polish. After decades of dormancy, the building was most recently home to New Era Cap Company. Beginning in 2015, and with new revitalization of the Hydraulics district, Tommyrotter Distillery brings honest, small batch, hand labor to this historic site.

We use homegrown American grains to produce what we consider to be the cleanest vodka and most flavorful gin. Our gin is infused with herbs, spices, roots and flowers sourced from all over the world that come together in our distiller’s secret recipe. Our small batch vodka is a nod to the simple and clear, natural and honest, made with back, hand and heart.
