Here’s farm to glass. Potatoes, cucumbers, wheat, rye and herbs harvested from the fields of Foster Farm in Sagaponack, N.Y., go into the spirits that brother and sister, Dean and Marilee Foster, have been making for the past three years. “We knew the farm couldn’t survive on just potatoes,” said Mr. Foster, a sixth-generation farmer. “So we had to diversify; we didn’t want the land to be subdivided for houses.” Their silky Sagaponack Potato Vodka came first. Then they added a straightforward wheat vodka, and recently, a Danish-style aquavit that relies on farm-grown herbs. Refreshing cucumber vodka is new, and they’re also distilling potato-based whiskey-style aged spirits called Single Spuds. All the products are available for sampling and purchase at the bright tasting room they opened a few months ago in an old barn adjacent to the distillery. Delivery is available only in the Hamptons.
