Saratoga Courage was founded by Holly and Serge Shishik in 2013. Our mission: Create locally made products that compete with the finest spirits from around the world. "We received a tremendous amount of support at the state and local level that allowed us to build and license a state of the art facility in our hometown." Our Goal: Support local businesses from construction to consumption. "Whether sourcing local lumber to build our stillhouse or finding a bottle supplier, we looked in our own backyards first, suprisingly we found nearly everything we needed." Local artist Rich Gabriel provided the artwork. Saratoga resident Patrick Jankowski has done all our graphic design. Even our labels are printed just down the road in Clifton Park. By keeping everything local we found savings, supported our neighbors and sleep very soundly at the end of a great day of making booze.
