We work each day within this city, over these cobblestone streets, in Red Hook at the juncture of old and new New York City. Where things get done in their own way — a place that defines itself.
Widow Jane scours the country for the finest barrels of Straight Bourbon & Rye Whiskeys.
Hand assembled right here in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, we bring these to you with non chill-filtration, and proofed with a hard-yet-sweet pure limestone water from the Legendary Rosendale Mines of Upstate New York.
We also distill every week in Red Hook using the finest non-GMO ingredients, including corn varietals such as Baby Jane that are unique to us and that we have nurtured over many years.WEBSITE

Widow Jane Lucky 13
The whiskey aging process is influenced by time & place. Aren’t we lucky.
These barrels have all been influenced by the greatly varying temperatures & humidity levels of their original source and their time in our rick house in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
The different rick house positions combined with climate variations have led to subtle deviations in flavor, all coming together in a hyper small batches, little more than a handful of barrels at a time.
Aged for a minimum of thirteen years, non-chill filtered & proofed with our own limestone mineral water from the Legendary Rosendale Mines of NY, Lucky Thirteen is always a way to share good fortune.
Aroma: Vanilla Bean, Earl Grey Tea, Caramel & Sweet Tobacco.
Taste: Pecan Pie, Whole Grain Toast, Grapefruit Peel.
Finish: Nutmeg, Birch Beer, Dry Oak Tannin.
Widow Jane The Vaults
For our fourth Vaults project, we had the luxury of blending barrels from our stocks of up to 20 year old casks. The Vaults is a unique series: exceptional & mature whiskey, rebarrelled in new cooperage.
When distillate is barreled, it is young and wild. After a decade and half, it is mellow and mature. Placing The Vaults blend in new oak polishes older whiskey in a surprising way. It enhances the intensity, richness, and depth of flavor, giving it that Widow Jane signature taste.
An act of congress in 1964 established bourbon as our only true American Spirit. Combining Tennessee & Indiana bourbon, blended & finished in New York, rebarreled in wood from the Missouri Ozarks, this truly is an American Spirit.
In the Vaults tradition, you’ll find sweet tobacco and leather, vanilla, sarsaparilla, unsweetened cinnamon and cocoa powder, along with a hint of a seasoned oak campfire. It is cut to proof using the water of the legendary Rosendale mines of New York State. This complimentary ingredient lends beautiful minerality and a finish that can only be Widow Jane.
Aroma: Broken in Leather, Seasoned Oak Campfire.
Taste: Sweet Tobacco, Vanilla, Sarsaparilla.
Finish: Unsweetened Cinnamon, Cocoa Powder.
