Our Story Starts with a Fearless Dreamer
The ingredients of this uniquely American family story are familiar — a young man leaves an old country in hopes of finding freedom and a better life in the New World. He nurtures future generations to love their country and fight for causes they believe in. One intrepid descendant builds a business close to the flow of a great river of commerce in late 19th-century America, and creates a tradition that combines strong values with exceptional whiskies that has been rediscovered and continues to this day.

Join Us in the Murray Hill Club for Tastings & Cocktails

Magnus & Co. distillery, captures the glamour and passion of the time. We cordially invite you to take a delightful cocktail journey led by Nicole Hassoun, Gin Distiller and acclaimed bartender.
