The Tommyrotters’ Club was a band of rebellious artisans in the early 20th century who broke rank from the Arts and Crafts Movement to create for creation’s sake. They sought adventure, mischief, and inspiration in nature. Honoring their industrious spirit of back, hand, and heart, Tommyrotter Distillery crafts small batch spirits using American grains. The distillery is located in Buffalo, New York’s historic Hydraulics manufacturing district.Tommyrotter Distillery loves making whiskey as much as they love sharing it with the masses. Whiskey Fest is about bringing whiskey to the people.
