Our Story

Why Do Good?

Honoring those who we have lost and the town where we live

Roscoe, NY is a special place. Our peaceful town is nestled between two pristine rivers, the Beaverkill and the Willowemoc, just two hours outside New York City. Roscoe is the birthplace of American fly fishing, but we are a town that is more than clean water and fishing. It is a community of honest, hardworking people have helped shape our spirits and our story. We invite you to visit our distillery and our community. 

Our goal at Do Good Spirits has always been to make the highest quality spirits representing the quality of New York State agriculture, support our local community and to share a message of thanks for those who have served.

When you look through a bottle of Bootlegger New York Craft spirit, you’ll see the design of a poppy flower, the flower of remembrance for fallen soldiers and sailors. We share the meaning of this symbol with every visitor and do all of our guided tastings for donation, which is 100% donated to the Third Option Foundation. As a veteran owned business, I am honoring the last words said to me by my old friend and hero, Do Good.

To all of the people who have supported our brands and shared our story, I want to say thank you. Above all, Do Good!  

The Poppy Flower

The Poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance from World War 1.

The Beaverkill River

The beaver is the official animal of New York State and the namesake of the Beaverkill River, which is one of the cleanest bodies of water in North America.
