The Lineup

White Corn Whiskey

90 proof whiskey made from a four-grain mash bill of 70% corn, 20% rye, 5% wheat and 5% barley. Sweet corn flavor, with little “white lightning” kick.

White Rye Whiskey

90 proof whiskey made from a four-grain mash bill of 70% rye, 20% corn, 5% wheat and 5% barley. Spicy and smooth.

Cinnamon Moonshine

90 proof moonshine with White Corn Whiskey as the base. Natural cinnamon sticks give it a perfect light cinnamon flavor.

Star Anise Moonshine

90 proof moonshine with White Corn Whiskey as the base. Natural star anise pods give it the wonderful flavor of Grandma’s anise cookies.

Morluski’s Handcrafted Krupnik

Morluski’s Krupnik

45 proof sweet polish honey liqueur made from our Cinnamon Moonshine combined with honey, citrus zest, and a myriad of spices. The result of a collaboration with Morluski’s Polish & Italian Restaurant in Clarence, NY

Handlebar Handcrafted Bourbon Whiskey

Bourbon Whiskey

90 proof small batch bourbon whiskey, made from a four-grain mash bill, aged in new American White Oak barrels. Notes of oak and vanilla on the nose, maple sugar candy and butterscotch on the palate, and a long, warm finish.

White Corn Whiskey

Our first signature recipe is un-aged, and therefore doesn’t spend any time in the barrel before it’s bottled. Made of 70% corn, 20% rye, 5% barley and 5% wheat this locally handcrafted modern moonshine is a sweet, easy sipper. 

Tasting Room

The Old Scotland Road Distillery sits on land that has been in the Hyder family for three generations in the small town of Akron, NY. Visit us in the heart of rural, Western New York for a glass of fine white corn whiskey and open country air.

Drawing of prohibition style still

Recipe driven by real ingredients.

After two weeks of fermentation, an all-natural heat/cooling cycle and many long hours of distilling, this sweet 90 proof liquid is hand bottled and poured. Calling on the days of prohibition, we’ve mastered the art and chemistry of this beautiful process.

Pile of Raw Barley

Small batches. Big Flavor.

Made in small, handcrafted batches, New York sourced grains are carefully combined to produce a truly fine spirit. With a nose, flavor and finish as bold as the distiller’s signature moustache, this Whiskey is sure to intrigue you each time you raise a glass.
