Our spicy, rugged handcrafted rye whiskey is subtly infused in small batches with late-summer honey from New York’s Catskill Mountains for a smooth, rich flavor with notes of toffee, burnt orange peel and golden raisin. With a delicate, distinctive balance, it is a truly unique experience for the palate.
This rich, complex whiskey is a carefully blended mix of rye, malted barley, corn and a gentle hint of our raw wildflower honey to create a mellow, well-rounded spirit. Blended, filtered and bottled in New York State.

Claire m. Marin, Ceo & Founder
Born in Madrid and raised in New York City, Claire M Marin, proprietor of Catskill Provisions had already attained success in the corporate world as a national magazine Publisher. After moving to the small, rural town of Long Eddy in the Catskill Mountains, she started beekeeping as a hobby and found herself drawn to the bees and how they work in easy harmony with each other and their surroundings.
Inspired by their example, she began building her own business, drawing upon the local natural resources of Upstate New York.
Today, Claire tends to over 300 beehives in Delaware, Sullivan, and Madison Counties in New York State in cooperation with other local beekeepers to create small batch, hand-packed honey harvested several times a year.
The Catskill Provisions community has grown to include a loyal following from locavore restaurants, hotels, and specialty stores whose shared goals include a commitment to sustainable, raw, organic, local food products.
Together, we work towards the greater good: environmental protection, vibrant local economies, and, of course, our health and wellbeing.
Catskill Provisions products not only taste good, but do good. A percent of sales is donated to environmental causes devoted to saving the bees and other pollinators.
We invite you to partner with us—and Bee Proud!
