Whiskey is very important to have around your Thanksgiving table (or any holiday table, for that matter) because everyone needs something strong to stress-drink. Why? Because the holidays are inherently stressful and everyone's thrown together with people they may or may not like. What do you do when your Uncle Bob starts talking how he's totally loves gay people, he just doesn't think they should be able to get married? Take a swig. What do you do when your mother looks in your general direction and says, "Well, I'd just like to have grandchildren at one point." Take a swig. It helps.
Lucky for you, Hudson Whiskey—which was established in 2001 and is the first whiskey distillery in New York State since Prohibition—comes in several flavors, so you can taste all of the flavors of holiday despair in one sitting. Brilliant. Now, let's talk about what Thanksgiving dinner must have been like during the Prohibition. WOOF.
