As businesses across the Hudson Valley announce temporary closures, a local distillery will be following suit.

As COVID-19 cases are on the rise, local businesses are taking precautions to keep their employees and customers safe. Restaurants and bars across the region have announced temporary closures and the installation of advanced air filtration systems. Now another local business has announced they will be closed for one month.

On Sunday, December 13, 2020, Orange County Distillery announced they will be temporarily closing. They made the announcement on Facebook and Instagram. Orange County Distillery will close their Brown Barn Farms location, which is their tasting room and event space, for the month of January 2021. They will be open for the last day of 2020 on December 27.

Their announcement reads:

To our friends, family and followers,
Brown Barn Farms will be closed to the public for the month of January 2021. Our last day in 2020 will be Sunday, December 27th.
We still offer to-go/curbside pick-up at Brown Barn, and will continue to do so. Bottles of liquor, pre-batched cocktails, beer, cider, seltzer and wine. Available on our website or our app.
