What is The Best Distillery on Long Island?

An increasing number of craft distilleries have opened up shop on Long Island in recent years, but which one is best?

Long Islanders voted Liv Vodka the Best Distillery on Long Island in the 2021 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest!

It seems that craft distilleries may be the next evolution of the craft beer boom that has seen dozens of breweries pop up on Long Island over the past decade.

The distillers at Long Island Spirits may not have quite as much competition—there are still only a handful of craft distilleries on the island—but that doesn’t stop them from putting their heart and soul into every sustainably distilled bottle of LiV vodka.

Owners and childhood friends Rich Stabile and Dan Pollicino use 100 percent locally grown russet potatoes to triple distill the award-winning gluten-free spirit. Mix it with orange juice, tonic, club soda, or have it on the rocks.

No matter how it’s served, the spirit of Long Island lives in every sip.

Liv Vodka is located at 2182 Sound Ave. in Baiting Hollow. It can be reached at 631-630-9322 or lispirits.com
