Our Story

It all started back in 2011, in the backyard over some whiskey and a loaded smoker when our founder and chief trailblazer – musician Tommy Brunett, came up with the concept of combining two great American past times: great bourbon/whiskey making with an added subtle hint of Applewood BBQ’s smoked goodness.

Our internationally acclaimed NYS farm distillery in Fairport, NY is where the magic happens. 


“A must try for those who are delving into bourbon but have a hard time with the sweetness found in most expressions.”

“I just love the fact that the apple smoke contains both tannins and apple... And the grains are allowed the freedom to link with the tannins and form a bourbony undertone… superb. Love it!”


“The pureness of Iron Smoke’s ingredients and variety of flavors make the whiskeys perfect for enjoying neat, in a classic cocktail such as an Old Fashioned, or something more imaginative.”

"Smoking the wheat adds an unexpected dimension to the sweet grain."

"Iron Smoke Distillery, located in Fairport, New York, is a place for whiskey lovers from all around to come and see what happens when vision and creativity collide, ultimately producing something utterly unique both in terms of flavour and feeling."
