What’s to LOVE About Viscount:
It’s hard to find a store as vast and yet as unimposing as Viscount. The selection of fine wines and spirits is peerless. It’s hard to imagine walking into this shop and not leaving with at least a half dozen great finds.
Unlike other stores of its size, Viscount Wine and Liquor lacks intimidation. The staff at Viscount are all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. They’re happy to help you pick the perfect bottle, or let you shop in peace. They offer frequent tastings, and you’ll not be hard-pressed to find Pristine Vodka available to taste either!

The great thing about Wappingers Falls is that it is the very best of both worlds. 90 minutes north of Manhattan, Wappingers Falls is just a hop, skip, and a jump from one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities on earth.

This combination of class and natural beauty fits Pristine Vodka like a kidskin glove. Smooth, classy, with a taste of something elegant. And yet, also abundant in natural wonders.

What’s to LOVE About New York’s Hudson Valley Region:
Everything. This region of New York State is stuffed to the gills with history, beautiful scenery, gastrointestinal delights, and so much more. And for those who crave the city life, the Big Apple isn’t too far away, either. At Pristine Vodka, we embody all that this region has to offer: nature, night life, quality of life, and a discerning palette. We’re all about the Martini in the night club, AND the Bloody Mary on your deck at sunrise. New York’s Hudson Valley puts you in the middle of it all. If you’re planning a trip to the area, here are some MUST see’s:
Back to Nature
- Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park, Poughkeepsie, NY. This linear park was once a train bridge over the Hudson River connecting Poughkeepsie and Highland, NY. It stretches for 1.28 miles and sits 212 feet above the river. As you can imagine, it has a KILLER view. You could easily make a day out of this reasonable walk by packing a picnic lunch, or stopping on either end of your journey for a meal, a drink, some shopping, or any combination of the above. The park itself occasionally offers events and activities, so a quick check of their website before you plan to go is a good idea. Just be sure to pack your sunscreen!
- MeadowBrook Farm and Market, Wappingers Falls, NY. No trip to the Hudson Valley is complete without a visit to an apple orchard, and MeadowBrook Farm has the quintessential New York apple picking adventure you didn’t know you needed. But you do, oh, you do. The farm market offers a great selection of locally grown produce, fresh salsa, local honey, and other treats you’ll enjoy– including Apple Cider Donuts. Yum. You can also pet a goat or two.
- Storm King Art Center, Cornwall, NY. Bet you didn’t know there was a modern sculpture museum built into the landscape along Interstate 87. The Storm King Art Center is widely celebrated as one of the world’s best sculpture parks. It would be easy to lose an afternoon just wandering around the property. In addition to sculpture, the Art Center is home to a dramatic landscape that includes trees, native grasses, wetlands, ponds, and fields. Hours vary throughout the year, so check their website before you go.
The Rest is History
- Hyde Park, NY. The town of Hyde Park includes Springwood, the birthplace, home, and final resting place of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd president of the United States. After you tour the house, check out other related sites nearby: the FDR Presidential Library and Museum, the Vanderbilt Mansion Historic Site, and Val-Kill Cottage (Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site). There is a host of history as well as beautiful gardens, trails, and demonstrations. There’s something for everyone in Hyde Park. A full day is highly recommended.
- Union Church of Pocantico Hills, NY. A quaint, unassuming, country church on the outside. Stained-glass masterpieces on the inside. Commisioned by the Rockefellers, the building itself is pleasing to the eye. The show-stopper is the Rose Window– the last work of art created by Henri Matisse. Nine additional stained glass windows, created by Marc Chagall, adorn the walls. The contrast of the sharp and simple interior with the flourish of colors and light work a sort of magic. It is the perfect union of art and history.
Whatever excitement awaits you on your journey, don’t forget Pristine Vodka!
