About Us

Award winning Claremont Distilled Spirits, Inc, located in Fairfield, New Jersey was founded in May 2014.  Our intention has always been to show that world class spirits could be produced in the “Garden State” using locally sourced ingredients.  We use New Jersey potatoes in the production of our vodka.  Additionally, many of our flavored product offerings take advantage of New Jersey being among the nation’s largest producers of a variety of fruits including Blueberries and Peaches.

Claremont Vodka was the first craft spirit produced in New Jersey to be awarded a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.  This competition is the most highly regarded spirits competition in the world.  Claremont Vodka is the only New Jersey spirit to be awarded this prestigious award twice.  In addition, Wine Enthusiast Magazine named Claremont Vodka a Top 100 Spirit of 2016 giving it a 93 point rating.  Our NJD Moonshine has also been recognized as a superior product being awarded a silver medal at the Denver International Spirits Competition.

Claremont Distilled Spirits is the largest craft distillery in the New Jersey.  We have 4,000 gallons of fermentation capacity and 1,000 gallons of distillation capacity.  We operate three stills including a 500 gallon pot still for making our bourbon and other whiskies.  We use a 5 plated hybrid still and custom made 23 foot dual column still for making our vodkas.  The vodka produced from our column still is at the equivalent 23 times distilled.

Claremont is proudly owned by, and its products proudly produced by, and sold by native, lifelong New Jerseyans.  We are proud of our heritage and the products we create. Our attention to detail through constant and personal monitoring throughout the production process results in true craft spirits that we believe are among the finest produced. Upon tasting our spirits we believe you will agree.

93 Points - Claremont Vodka

“Soft and mild, this potato vodka has a neutral aroma and flavor, finishing clean with the barest earthy-cocoa note on the exit. Mix it into chilled vodka martinis.”
