OUR STORY

American Brandy is in the midst of an exciting resurgence and rebirth. Klocke Estate will produce artisanal 'earth-to-glass' craft apple and grape brandies that reflect and embody the terroir of New York's Hudson Valley and the rich distilling history of the region.

Klocke Estate founders survey the property.

John Frishkopf, the founder of Klocke Estate, a longtime devotee of Europe's best brandies, recognized that the combination of climate and the superior quality of New York State fruit is ideal for the creation of world-class American artisanal brandies. By happenstance, he met Master Distiller and Cellar Master Dan Farber, who established Osocalis in 1992 and built it to one of the finest artisanal brandy distilleries in America. They immediately bonded over their shared love and deep appreciation of brandy and the pursuit of authentic and extraordinary artisanal spirits.

THE ESTATE

After an extensive search, we selected a site which is ideal for the creation of a farm estate in the heart of the Hudson Valley in the Town of Claverack, just four miles from the city of Hudson and the Hudson River.  Acres of apple orchards and grape vineyards are being planted around the future distillery and tasting room, the very roots of this ambitious venture.
