We are situated amidst the historic allure of two 18th century forts, nestled along the scenic shores of Lake Champlain. These forts, intricately intertwined with both regional and national history, serve as a constant source of inspiration. It is within this backdrop of rich heritage and breathtaking natural beauty that War Cannon Spirits was born. Our vision encompasses not only the creation of exceptional spirits but also the remarkable restoration of a landmark venue. Through our passionate endeavors, we are driven to capture the true essence of New York and the Adirondack North Country, striving to showcase the unparalleled treasures they hold to all who step foot within our doors.
Our tasting room was built in 1820.
It was used as a mill when Putnam Creek was dammed and a pond existed behind the site. There were many alterations and additions over the last 200 years, yet the core still remains one of the oldest structures of its kind, as referenced in ‘A Guide to Architecture in the Adirondacks’.
