Utica, NY (WIBX) – The idea has been fermenting for more than three years and today the Adirondack Distilling Company is officially open for business in Utica.

Head Distiller Jordan Karp, along with partners Steve Cox and Bruce Elwell, presided over a ribbon-cutting that included community and legislative leaders.  State Senator Joseph Griffo, Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi, Mayor Robert Palmieri, and Vincent Esposito representing the Empire State Development Office and Governor Cuomo’s office, were among those on hand to show their support.

Owners/Partners of the hand-crafted vodka-making company are professionals in the community.  Karp is a political consultant, Elwell is a doctor, and Cox is an attorney.  They consider their work part-time jobs with full-time hours…a labor of love with which they have a special relationship.  Debra Carlson-Cox says she is married to both one of the partners as well as the business.
