Maple Bourbon Créme

18% ALC. By VOL. ~ 36 Proof ~ 750ml

Liqueur & Bourbon Whiskey

with Natural Flavors & Caramel Color

"The enchanted mountains of Western New York know how to keep secrets. Every rock, gorge, and stream has a hidden story. We've learned something from the trees, though, and it's become the secret ingredient to our Maple Bourbon Créme. This new liqueur is sweetened with syrup locally sourced from Western New York maple trees. When you drink this spirit, you learn a little secret of these hills. Enjoy Ellicottville Distillery's Maple Bourbon Créme, from our trees to you!"

Honey Spirit

40% ALC. By Vol. ~ 80 proof ~ 750ml

Spirits Distilled from 100% Local Honey

"The Mysterious alchemy of honey results in nature's sweetest delicacy. This ancient process requires time, patience, and dedication, similar to the distilling of spirits. At Ellicottville Distillery, we've partnered with our local bees to craft a spirit that shares the treasure of their honey, the taste of this land. Enjoy our Honey Spirit, from bee, to keeper, to spirit to you!"

Appleshine

25% ALC. By VOL. ~ 50 Proof ~ 750ml

Spirits Distilled from Corn with Natural Flavors Added

"Fall in a glass, great over ice. Local Cider based (from Mayer Bros. or seasonally from Pumpkinville) with a caramel & cinnamon back-end. Our take on Apple Pie Moonshine."

Blueberry Vodka

35% ALC. BY Vol. ~ 70 PROOF ~ 750ml

New York Craft - Small Batch - Distilled from Apples

American Whiskey

40% ALC. By VOL. ~ 80 Proof ~ 750ml

"Aged 2 years in used bourbon barrels, twice pot distilled. What does it mean to be American? For some, it means creating what you want with what you have. In that tradition, we've harvested and twice pot-distilled grain sourced from our farm to create our American Whiskey. Barrel-aged two years in American oak casks, this whiskey is ounce for ounce truly American: bold, seasoned, ready for anything. Enjoy!"

The course size is smaller than a classic golf course but larger than a mini golf course and uses one size club and a larger golf ball.

Bigfoot is one of the first park golf courses in the United States, inspired by the flagship course in Akron, New York.

Currently available to play on weekends and by appointment during the week!

Open all week after memorial Day Weekend!
