The Story: When Claire Marin was a publishing executive, beekeeping was her hobby. Inspired by the collaborative and cooperative work of the bees, she left her publishing career to launch Catskill Provisions in 2010. Led by the pillars of integrity and authenticity, every Catskill Provisions product is a nod toward the greater good: contributing to environmental sustainability, fueling New York's local economies, and protecting pollinators. Today, Claire tends over 300 beehives in Upstate New York, working with local beekeepers to create small batch, hand-packed honey harvested twice annually in fall and spring. Join us in cheering her on as she becomes the fourth woman in the US to have a distillery where she'll continue making award-winning Honey Whiskey.
