Forget the flask....

As a member of several bridal parties, I've seen my fair share of groomsmen receive monogrammed flasks and I always think to myself "will they ever really use them?". I would bet that the majority of engraved flasks end up in the bottom of a dresser drawer with all of those socks that have mysteriously lost their mates.

Why give your groomsmen (or bridesmaids...I hate to be gender-specific here) a shiny metal flask when you could give them a bottle of the real deal? Indulge your wedding party's taste buds with some whiskey or vodka distilled right here in the Hudson Valley.

Tuthilltown Spirits is a craft distillery located in Gardiner, NY. This small batch operation uses locally grown apples to make its vodka and locally grown grain to create its signature whiskeys. Need an idea for a unique bachelor/bachelorette party experience? A tour of the distillery and a tasting of the Tuthilltown creations are $15.00 a person. Sure to please the liquor connoisseurs in your wedding party and is budget-friendly!

A 375-ml bottle of whiskey will run you about $44. Visit the operation in person or purchase bottles and other gifts from Tuthilltown's online store and forget the flask...your wedding party will thank you.

  1. I'm a big fan of this idea for us bridesmaids- bring on the whiskey! And locally distilled? What could be better!
