The Industrious Spirit Company
If you think vodka is the worst spirit, you haven’t been to ISCO yet. The urban distillery’s version, made with corn from upstate New York, is smooth and balanced, without the typical burn that’s associated with vodka. They’ve changed our minds if that counts for anything. If you’re adventurous and like dirty martinis, check out their Ostreida vodka, brewed with local oysters. For folks who don’t want a drink that tastes like the ocean, the bar also has a rotating list of sweet, boozy, bitter, and frozen cocktails. Whatever you choose, soak up the urban factory setting at a fire pit on the patio, and maybe even order a pizza from Lost Valley Pizza just across the street.
